Creating vintage style Christmas cards is so easy with the beautiful products from Stamperia.
Stamperia is an Italian company based in Budapest that creates the most gorgeous papers and ephemera. The quality is amazing.
I chose the Christmas Patchwork 6" x 6" paper pack with the matching die cuts. The die cuts are really solid card and coordinate perfectly with the papers.
The Christmas Patchwork collection includes 12" x 12" paper packs, 8" x 8" paper packs and a clear stamps. There is also matching rice paper with all the images on one sheet for mixed media work or scrapbooking.
I used vintage photo distress oxide ink to ink blend around the edges to give an antique look on all layers.
The backgrounds were either kraft card stock or paper from Studio Light. Both were stamped with a script stamp from Woodware Stamps around the edges to add interest to the backgrounds.
All die cuts were glued directly to the paper without foam tape. The die cut images were replicated on the paper and some were the similar size.
All sentiments were either on the paper design or cut from another paper sheet. I outlined them with brown pen to help them stand out from the images.
Only one of these ornaments is a die cut. Can you guess which one?
For the final two cards I ripped the paper for a distressed look to use some of the left over strips.
I've plenty of die cuts left for more cards though I will need either another paper pack or other vintage paper.
Another idea I thought of after I finished would be to roughen up the edges with a paper distresser or the edge of my scissors to create a more worn appearance.
A quick way to create a batch of Christmas cards.
