Sugar Creek Hollow Saturday Challenge

Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow.  This August has been so hot in so many areas but it's time to cool things down and think Christmas.  This week our challenge is to make a Vintage Christmas Card:

Card details:
  Bo Bunny "Santa" stamp, Stampin Up and Bazzil cardstock, K and Company design paper,  
Marianne Creatables corner die, Martha Stewart holly leaf, Dew Drops, 
ribbon from Michael's, 
Tim Holtz distressed ink, Stampin Up chalk 
To achieve a vintage look, I used distress inks around my image and tore the edges of my paper.   

We want you to put away your cute images and find a vintage Christmas image in your craft room or online. You will also need to get out your most vintage papers and embellishments.  There are also lots of freebies available online and a number of wonderful vintage products in the craft stores now.

Vintage doesn't necessarily mean overly embellished especially since you want to be able to afford the postage to mail your creation.   Just think inks, distressing, lace, antique buttons, etc.

We will be choosing a random winner and that person will receive a winner's badge to display on her blog and a digi of our choice.  In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge to display and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

My design team sisters pulled out all the stops to create vintage Christmas cards for your inspiration.  For details on each card just click on the designer's name on my sidebar and you will be taken to their blog.
