Wishes for Christmas - Cathy - Vintage Frost Basics

Hello everyone! I can’t believe how quickly the time is passing. Today I am sharing my first Christmas card of the year and I know that it is just around the corner. Being a card maker, I never seem to have enough handmade Christmas cards for my family and friends made within a reasonable time frame, so this year I am determined to have enough made!

I love the trimmings and decorations of the Christmas season and one thing I especially love are vintage Christmas cards. I absolutely love all of the vintage images that are in the die cut sheet of the Vintage Frost Basics. I layered this image with Spellbinders Timeless rectangles, then layered it on top of 10th December and tucked in Tim Holtz on the edge Distressed doily die. Everything was distressed with Vintage Photo distress ink.

To create some vintage touches, I used lace and seam binding. I used a variety of flowers from Green Tara that had muted tones, that compliment the papers.

The Vintage Frost Basics Collection has so many beautiful papers and die cuts to work with. I especially love the blue tones (there is pink in this collection as well!) I look forward in creating many more cards for my family using these papers.

Hi! I'm Cathy. I live in Sydney and am a Primary School teacher. I am passionate about teaching and love what I do. At present paper crafts are my creative outlet, which is my other passion. I am drawn to vintage, shabby chic styled crafts which I love to create. I do enjoy other crafts such as sewing, quilting, knitting and crotchet…not enough time! I am always inspired to learn and to try new techniques in both teaching and my crafts. I love Maja Design papers and enjoy creating with them.
