Last year I was one of the guest designers on the "Digital Two for Tuesday" blog during the Christmas season. Cora posts vintage images that are free to use as artwork in projects and cards. Those of us who took part were given a number of different vintage images as options and were to choose one to create a card around. I chose the one in the photo below, but there were so many great images I saved them in a file and this year I chose to use two of the other images to make the additional cards in the photos that follow.
This is last year's card. I used water color pencils to color the image to stay with the vintage look. The leaves and berries in the border were punched out individually from red and green cardstock and I drew the lines on each leaf and and then outlined both the leaves and the berries in black ink and attached them to the card with glue dots.
One of this year's cards. This image reminded me so much of when I was a child in the 1940's - I loved it when I saw it. This version is without glitter . . . . .
You can see all of the great vintage images from this year and check out the December 2010 posts to see those from last year and the awesome cards that were made by the other guest designers at http://digitaltuesday.blogspot.com/ I love the vintage images. Thank you Cora for your kindness in sharing!
We had snow again Wednesday night but it is almost all gone. It seems hard to believe but with the expected forecast for the week days ahead, we may have a Christmas with NO snow. In this part of WI that just does not happen!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope that you have a happy one!
