CIJ with Vintage Holly Stickers

Hi, Friends......

I am here with another set of Christmas in July cards I made using vintage stickers. These were the other stickers on the sheet with the angels that I used HERE. Thank you to crafty pal, Karen, for these! <3

I used patterned paper scraps to make the oval and fancy frames for the stickers....and also for the pretty die cut Merry Christmas greeting. This sentiment die was a prize from the lovely Di Wray at Pixie's Snippets Playground. (THANKS, Di!! xoxox) I stamped some holly on the background to give it more depth and add to the vintage appeal.

Supplies used include:
Vintage stickers from Karen Ladd
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Oval STAX die set (retired)
Spellbinders die (rec'd in prize, cannot find online)
Creative Expressions - Sue Wilson - Mini Christmas Wishes die
DCWV scraps from stash
Holly on margins of background - Stamper's Anonymous - TH Collection 2016 Stamptember Holiday stamp set (retired)
Simon Says Stamp - Khaki ink

Here are the other cards I made in this series:

Hope you enjoyed these easy vintage cards! I had so much fun making them......and I actually used ALL the stickers on that sheet. less thing in my stash.....only 3 million things to go!! lol...

Have any of you seen Comet Neowise yet? It's the finest comet for visibility in years. I haven't seen it yet, but I am going to look at sunset for it this evening. Right now, in most places it is visible in the early morning and just after sunset. I have a clearer look to the west than to the east so I couldn't see it when I got up early the other morning. I'll let you know if I see it tonight! More info HERE.

  2. Pretty Christmas cards. I like the framing.

  3. I just love these vintage designs and the Christmas foliage stickers look wonderful with the fancy frame and die cut sentiment. The stamped holly around the edges are subtle but give a lovely extra dimension to your card! I'm thinking that I need to pull out a sheet of those sticker too and get to work!! You've inspired me...and put me to shame, haha!
