Vintage Scroll Christmas Card

Vintage Scroll Christmas Card

Hi everyone, I hope you are having an awesome day so far!  Thanks for popping by again for another round of crafty inspiration for Heartfelt Creations!

I absolutely love Christmas time and I was having so much fun with the new  “Festive Christmas Collection” and was so inspired that I just had to create a fun little vintage Christmas card (Yes, believe it or not, it’s an actual card!)

Project Instructions:

Other products: 5 x 7 Mystical Embrace, Off-White Card Stock, Core Essentials Neutrals Paper, Distressed Inks, Shimmer Spray, VersaMark, Antique Gold Embossing powder, Sheer Shimmer Spritz Sparkle, pearls from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by taking a piece of Core Essentials Neutrals Paper 11″ x 7 1/2″ and score it in the middle so you have a card 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″.  Next using a rasp of another tool, rough up the edges of the base and then add a layer of paper from the Festive Christmas Collection.  Using the 5 x 7 Mystical Embrace, die cut and sand the Core Essentials Neutrals Paper for that perfect Vintage look and attach it to your card with another piece of the same paper from the Festive Christmas Collection in the center.  To make the scroll, first stamp the Festive Notes PreCut Set 2 times on top of each other and then cut a strip of paper 10 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ for your scroll.  I slightly curved in the to center of each side to give that flared look at the top and bottom.  Once you have everything cutout for the scroll, take a skewer and roll both ends to the length that you want.  Finally decorate and add your favorite festive Poinsettia for the finishing touch!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
