A trio of Christmas Vintage

Here's what I've been up to: making a few Christmas cards.  I've used the colours from the Inkspiration Challenge for this week: Kraft, White, Old Olive and Real Red!

 I've used some of the Christmas packs I have on my Etsy store - doilies and the vintage circles!
 This first card uses a new stamp from Tickled Pink Stamps - Cherrie - isn't she cute!  I've used Copics to colour in and also did some paper-piecing on the Christmas ornament.  The printed paper is computer generated - i've typed out the Christmas story.  And the sentiment is Curly Cute by Stampin'Up.

 This next card I've kept really simple with the doily and vintage Christmas circle being the focus.  Once again I've used the printed paper and the same greeting, along with the Arch Lattice punch by Martha Stewart!

 And lastly, I have made another card with a large paper lace doily, added some circles in the different colours and finally a small doily to the centre.  I've also added another vintage circle and a 'birdie button' - you can find this one is my shop too!
So there you have my trio of Christmas cards with a touch of vintage.  I've been inspired to make a few cards this year, so I'm hoping to reproduce some of these ones.
Thanks for coming by.

These are gorgeous Chantelle. I love them all, especially the one with the very cute image. The typed paper is a brilliant idea, a perfect way to get words that make sense and mean something. I'm going to have to case that idea. As always I love all the little extras, all your beautiful embellishments. So lovely Chantelle, thanks for beautiful inspiration.
