Today I am sharing with you some vintage style Christmas cards made using the fabulous new Christmas digital paper collection by Graciellie Design. If you're new to my blog, do checkout my giveaway HERE. This weekend I had a load of fun creating these cards with Gracie's beautiful paper but didn't get time to share them. Happily Simon Says Stamp issued a new challenge: Try to Contain Yourself! So I decided to make a gift box for my cards. The funny thing is, I have had my Martha Stewart scoreboard forever and didn't even know you could make card boxes! Doh! So when I googled a tutorial, I was sure I would find something complicated. Instead, I came across this 3 minute video on YouTube and in literally 2 minutes I had my box assembled!

I used Gracie's paper to embellish the 5x7 envelope along with some Petal Lu flowers. You will notice I blended stamping with my digital project. I love the versatility!
What I love about printing digital paper is the ability to size the pattern to the scale of your project. Also the ability to print on multiple surfaces, such as thin paper for decoupage, cardstock, or even canvas and fabric.
I cropped the beautiful vintage images that are blended into the patterned paper so I could print them easily in the size I wanted. This set of paper is $5 and you can print unlimited digital images! You can barely buy a package of embellishments for that price.
Truly, the paper speaks for itself and very little embellishments were needed. Here I embossed a die cut chipboard snowflake in gold.
I used lots of vintage bakers twine, which coordinated perfectly with this vintage paper set.
Here I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die along with his holly greenery die. A splash of gesso gives this card a snowy vibe.
I stamped polka dots in red ink on the flowers before assembling. This gives a slight variation in color.
