A Vintage Christmas Card for Halloween!

Hello and happy Halloween, well almost!  I can not believe how quickly this month has passed and I am sure November has no intentions of being any different!  It's a good thing I managed to get a few Christmas cards made.  That gets me a little closer to being ready!  

I stayed true to my plan of using older papers, and while I'm sure my DH would still say I have too much, I feel better that I'm actually using up what I already had!  I did manage to squeeze one new product on this card-the silver sequins!  They are part of a winter sequins pack in the Holiday catalog.  I loved the wonderful snowflakes too, but they didn't quite fit the theme of the card!

Even though this card has layers, sequins, and ribbon, it is still quite easy to put together so I won't bore you with details!  I may end up adding some dazzling details to the berries before I consider this 'done'.  I think it will balance the shiny factor of the sequins!

I am so glad you took the time to visit today and I hope to return the favor soon!  But now I have to get our home ready for the trick-or-treaters that will be arriving this weekend!  Happy Halloween!

Card Recipe: Paper-sahara sand, very vanilla, Be of Good Cheer dsp (ret), Ink-early espresso, gumball green, cherry cobbler, Stamp Set-Bells and Boughs, Accessories-sequins, cherry cobbler seam binding


  1. Beautiful! I love the classic look to your card! Splendid design! And now you are one card ahead for the holidays! ♥

    So good to see you blogging again! :)

  2. A great card Margaret, very regal and how great you have made a start on your Christmas cards (panic panic!!!)

  3. This couldn't get any more classy and vintage! Is it normal to froth at the mouth when you see a bow that gorgeous? Should I get that checked out?? I honestly don't care...take it as a compliment. This is stinking GORGEOUS chica.
    Hugs to you Sib,
    me x

  4. this is a pretty Christmas card Margaret-and I like your idea of using up older dsp-I didn't buy any of the new Christmas paper because I want to use up some of my stash as well

  5. Love your pretty card Margaret and the font on your sentiment is one of my fave's. It's hard to believe that Christmas is almost here. xx

  6. This is simply stunning! It is one of the prettiest Christmas cards I've seen this year.

  7. Aha, I finally took the time to see if you posted this card and if I had commented on it - I am the happy recipient of this beauty :)


I would love to know what you think! Thanks for commenting!
