Vintage Christmas-More from My Minds Eye!

Because I'm an "anytime" designer,  I can post Sunday's or Thursdays.......I' ve been so over the moon with this My Minds Eye Lost and Found Christmas Collection, that I can't seem to stop creating with it~

I'm still working on my major project, but I keep getting distracted by other things that pop up~

I created this Petal Card for Monday's Try a New Technique Challenge over at Splitcoastsampers . You can find an awesome Tutorial by Beate Johns HERE

I cut my circles with  my Spellbinders Nested Heart Circles and cut the inner circles with  the Classic Circles
I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Corduroy Distress Ink and also added some ink the the stitching on the inner side of the card, since my bobbin thread is white.

I stamped the inner square with the MME Lost and Found Christmas Stamps

If you notice in the first picture, I created a Belly Band to hold the card together. For the main image and embellishments, I used the Die Cuts from the MME Christmas Kit as well as some Lace and ribbon I had here and a a matching Brad from the collection.

I really love the way this project turned out and hope to make some more for Christmas~!


  1. WOW!! It is gorgeous!!! I love that paper line too!

  2. this is the technique with the dies as flaps...saw a tutorial on it and haven't tried it yet, but this card makes me want to give it a whirl

  3. good thing I am heading to the store today this is turning out to be paper I need!
