Here's a quick look at the November 2019 A Vintage Christmas card kit...

Another fabulous Christmas card kit and I, for one, am ecstatic!! I still need so many Christmas cards... my stash is not quite where I need it and this kit is perfect!! I love the beautiful stamps, papers and the embellishments this month are all so lovely!!

Collection One: Holly Berries
I love to mix pinks and greens during Christmas... such a fun non-traditional color combo! I thought it would be perfect for this sweet house. And it worked perfectly along with these gorgeous papers in this collection. I added some dimension to the house by stamping it twice and fussy cutting the center piece. I traced around the fussy cut piece twice onto some scrap card stock and trimmed it within the traced line. I then adhered the two scrap piece together and adhered them to the back of the center piece of the house. I love the dimension it gives to the house! For another sample using this collection, you can check out my Sneak Peek post here ---> A Vintage Christmas Sneak Peek.

I adore this collection!! It's my absolute favorite of them all!! The Christmas Post stamp set by LDRS Creative is absolutely beautiful AND the colors in this collection are seriously my favorite combination of turquoise and red... and then there's the kraft card stock in the kit!! I love it!! So naturally I had to play with the kraft card stock and I thought it would be fun to just do a little bit of coloring so a spotlight card was perfect!!
