I really enjoy old book stores especially for perusing children's books. The art work from Dick and Jane books or old Little Golden Books (and the like) make my heart happy. Whenever a vintage card challenge arises I always think I should find damaged books at a yard sale and up-cycle the pretty art onto a card...yet I have never done so. I do have a little bit of October Afternoon "Under the Tree" ephemera, like the reindeer on this card, which is similar in style to vintage children's books.
I found a 6x6 sheet of music paper from an old card kit. The music paper is mounted on a 6x6 sheet of snowflake paper by My Mind's Eye "be merry" collection. The reindeer competed too much with the music paper for my liking, so I found a scrap of vellum to glue the reindeer on, which I anchored with an Echo Park "Christmas Cheer" chipboard element (black pennant w/ snowflake). Lastly, my sentiment is a rub-on from Creative Imaginations.
This card is for the "Spirit of Christmas Past" challenge at Jingle Belles. Thank you, Stef & Lauren for helping me create a card that is out of my comfort zone; it wouldn't be a challenge if it didn't stretch our creativity. And I have one more card ready for Christmas 2018.
