So I am so looking forward and super excited in meeting many of you 
who live in Brisbane and in Queensland. 
Also, I am looking forward to sharing my love and passion of paper crafting.





But for today, I am sharing a couple of  Very Vintage christmas cards created with the New papers from the 
Artdeco Creations - Ultimate Craft Colleciton  along with the 
and also the dies from the new release
Ooh La La collection collection.

These dies and papers are all available now from your local scrapbooking store.
Christmas will soon be here and I thought I share some christmas cards created with these new release products.

I created two cards using papers from both the 12 x 12 paperpad and 6 x6 paper pad
from the Season's Greetings Collection  &
using the die cuts cuts from the
Ooh La La collection in particular the
Nested Labels set ULT157557 &
Climbing Flowers Border ULT157568
and teaming up with the

Season's Greetings Collection die cuts
Rustic Christmas ULT157690
Merry Christmas Swirls ULT157683
Stockings were Hung ULT157694
Wild Christmas Flower die ULT157691

adding some of the gorgeous flowers from the
Season's Greetings Collection
Small Mixed Poinsettias flowers ULT157665
here and there.

How versatile are these papers and dies.
I created a very christmas tri-fold card, to give to someone special this christmas.
This card could be placed on display on a mantle or table.

Now I have created this card style before and if you missed the instructions
on how to create this card check it out over

so here is my Christmas vintage card

"Merry Christmas - Trifold Card"

I covered the whole card with papers with the
Season's Greetings Collection paper pad ULT157660 and before I adhered the papers to the card, I stamped the pinecone and leaves stamp around the edges of the papers with Rustic Hinge Ink.

also adding some Glitzin Glamour Glitter Glue Aztec Gold C0721981
