Christmas Blog Hop

I found this blog hop at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. They have 4 challenges that you can choose from. But I decided to choose all four (you know me, I can't pick just one challenge)! I made a square vintage card with 2 buttons, used 3 shades of pink and 2 shades of green, used the sketch (with a Santa instead of the tree), and I used my stickers.

When I hear "vintage" I think Mistletoe. I have a lot of Mistletoe paper left, but the Santa and the tag are my last stickers from the kit. I've never paired it with pink before, but I think I like it. I used baby pink for the cardstock and a blush button. The greens are New England Ivy and Sweet Leaf.


Materials used:
Cardstock: Baby Pink
B&Ts: Mistletoe
Stickease: Mistletoe
Markers: New England Ivy
Other: Pink, Green, and Holiday Buttons Assortments, Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon


  1. Why is it when you get to someone else's blog you think, Why didn't I think of that?
    Gorgeous card can't wait to see what you make of the other themes.
    Thanks for hopping along with us.
