Christmas cards

All Year Round Quick Fire #3

This is their requirement soooooooooooooo on to the challenge I'd like to see cards with and 'Vintage' type image. Thats it, pretty simple....
And here is the card I made.


Every year I make my friend a 'special' card and whilst scouting the internet a few weeks ago looking for inspiration I came across this tutorial by Mary Jo Allbright. I just love this free standing pop up card and it was really simple to make. Take a look, there are some fabulous tutorials on the resource page. The image is by Anita's amd I've used it a few times this year. I think he is gorgeous and definitely vintagey (if that's a word!). I used duck egg blue card and finished it off with white satin ribbon and fibres.
