Today I'm back on the Graphic 45 blog with a vintage Christmas card featuring the St. Nicholas collection as well as a tutorial so you can recreate my card. You'll want to head over to the Graphic 45 blog to check out the rest of the photos of my project as well as fellow design team member Maggi who has also created a fabulous Christmas project for you.
When I was starting out creating my card, I decided to use the St. Nicholas collection as it was the perfect jumping off point for creating my Christmas Card. By layering in keys from the staple line, fussy cut images from the St. Nicholas collection and ribbon, I was able to create a beautiful layered Christmas card.
Tip: Add some cream crochet lace trim to the Christmas borders to give them some extra interest.
