CCAYR May - Vintage Christmas


Pinch Punch first of the month!! May...how did that happen then? ...

...and as it's the start of a new month it's the start of a new challenge at


and we are all about Vintage this time.




I used a shaped Craftwork Cards base which I covered with a couple of pieces of freebie paper having first embossed and rubbed the top one with pearl gilding wax.


 I used lots of dies to create interest and texture and to fill the space as the image although Vintage inspired was a little small.




Finally a posy, tied with seam binding and a stonking great dazzler to finish it off!! I struggle with this style so was actually really quite pleased with myself...if that's allowed!!


A few challenges to play 


Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes 
Fab 'n' Funky #257 - Christmas
1 Image, 2 Papers, 3 embellishments (Flowers, poinsettia, pearls) and a pinch of glitter around the sentiment...phew!!
Simply Papercraft #3 - Anything Goes

Hope you will find time to join us this month and to boost your Christmas card stash too!!

Bye for now xx
