Inspired by the Merry Monday Challenge #217, I pulled out the Christmas Wishes papers from Kaiser Craft for one of the Falliday Fest challenge. The papers were perfect for a vintage theme, and the 6" x 6" paper pad even includes some die-cuts so it was perfect for a quick but beautiful card. The scallop pink border on the front and the little tree image were both die-cuts, and the Santa image is a 6" x 6" paper that includes four images, so this is one of them.The second image was glued inside the fold and the third was used on the front of the envelope. The corners were punched with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch (from last year's Holiday catalogue), because that corner shape looks very retro.
I looked at my sentiment collection for something with a font that would match the vintage feel and I found what I was looking for in the Christmas Bliss stamp set, one of the first photopolymer sets issued by Stampin' Up! (It doesn't seem to be available anymore.) I also used the Kraft Rope Trim from the 2016 Holidays Catalogue (p. 13). It should be noted to avoid surprises that it is definitely darker than the catalogue picture would suggest and a true deep kraft colour. A bit of mica flakes around the main image completes the look. I thought that element looked very retro as well.
To make my Joy Fold card a little different, I used a Scallop Square die to make the right part of the folded card.
