What do you think of when you think of vintage Christmas? Do you think of lace and velvet? Or maybe ice skating and sleigh riding? When I think of vintage Christmas it takes me back to my childhood days when I looked forward to baking cookies and doing craft projects. So the image that I used for this card combines a little of both of those.
This image is a Tasha Tudor stamp. I could go on about the sweet little books that Tasha Tudor wrote and illustrated, but to keep it short I'll just say that I purchased this stamp, not so much for myself, but to use for my cousin who happens to have a passion about all things Tasha Tudor.
I stamped the image in Marina Mist on a piece of school drawing paper in the hopes that it would resemble a page that you might see in an old coloring book. A vintage coloring book maybe? And I used the plaid background because it reminded me of the comfortable flannel pajamas that we wore in those days.
Oh, and the buttons and seam binding - well, what would a Christmas craft be without buttons and ribbons?
