Vibrant Christmas card

Hello, crafty friends and visitors!
MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you who celebrate today!

I am back with another Christmas card but this time it's a 'vintage meets vibrant' kind of a card. 
Here is what I created.

I stamped my background (manila cardstock) with my Tim Holtz snowflakes stamp and my Neon Pink stamp pad. Then I distressed the edges with a Vintage photo DI.
I wanted to go with some vibrant colors so I used my Brushos and my Glimmer mists with my white cardstock. I cut the shapes out of that cardstock (festive greenery and jingle bells) using my Sizzix dies. I decorated my jingle bells with Distress Stickles in gold. The sentiment was stamped with Tim Holtz stamp and my Watering can Archival ink.

I punched the star and applied some Crystal Ice Stickles on top. I also applied the stickles onto the edges of my card. I added some metallic thread to decorate my greenery arrangement for a more festive look. To 'hang' my bells I used my neon pink thread. I used my kraft cardstock for the card base.

I hope you like my vibrant Christmas card.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving lovely comments! I read and appreciate each and every one of them!

Hugs! Branka xx




  1. Vintage meets vibrant works so well Branka, I love your card, the colours are so cheering (here it is dull and raining) and I love all the little bits of 'tinsel', it makes it looks like they are hanging on a real tree! So clever and beautiful!

    I hope you and yours are enjoying the festive season! Love and hugs, Anne xxx

  2. Gorgeous card, Branka! I love the bright, bold colors against the kraft background! This really does remind me of an old vintage Christmas greeting! I hope you had a lovely Christmas with your family! I took a few days off and turned off the computer. To tell the truth that was lovely! But I love being able to "tune back in" this morning! Sending my love and hugs to you!
