Snowy Vintage Merry Christmas!

Just a quick post tonight — Sundays are busy at our house, but I wanted to get in a quick Christmas card before I called it a night, so I used my never fail go-to quick card items — Journal Notes, Silk Ribbon and a single sentiment, and today I added some Flower Soft snow as well.


Simple, quick, but still pretty — I think anyway! I used both the image and the journaling panel from this page inmy Christmas Journal Note Pad. My single layer sentiment is from A Merry Little Christmas by JustRite — it’s so simple and pretty — I love it! No layers, just quick and easy cut on a Petite Circle Nestability. My button has Pink Jute String run through it and it’s sewn on. This card is 5 1/4 wide by 4 3/4 high.


I used Polar White Flower Soft for the snow on the ground and the snowball in the girl’s hand. I think it adds a lot, especially if you could see it in real life!!! Nice sparkly snow!!! Quick and easy to apply with the Flower Soft Glue.

That’s it for tonight — here’s the shopping list:


SU Paper: Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom

Flower Soft: Polar White Flower Soft and Flower Soft Glue

The following items to make this card are available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store:

A Merry Little Christmas Set and the 1 5/8″ Stamper, both by JustRite

Christmas Journal Notes by Crafty Secrets

VersaFine Vintage Sepia Ink

Ivory Silk Ribbon and Pink Jute Stringby May Arts and the Bow Easy

Petite Circle Nestabilities
