We're back for day four of the 12 Days of a Clean and Simply Christmas-Stamp Simply Style!
My design for today features one of my favorite styles: vintage. Even though I wanted to do a vintage card, I still strove to keep it CAS. It truly can be done, once you have the correct supplies.
My Mind's Eye "Lost And Found Christmas" 6 X 6" decorator paper adds the muted, rich colors and wonderful prints leaning toward a vintage look. With this type coloration and print, you already have achieved a bit of time worn appeal. This pad is actually quite versatile, as Sharon used it on day three of the 12 Days of CAS, lending a more modern and elegant feel.
If you have followed my designs from the past, you will recognize this poinsettia blossom, Spellbinder's "Nested Poinsettia." This is one of my favorite ways to add a festive focal point to my Christmas designs. Easy, too, as you can cut all three layers of the poinsettia out of a 6 X 6" pad at once. Exciting news: Spellbinder has come out with a brand new "Layered Poinsettia"!
A punched snowflake and a Webster's Pages "Vintage Button Assortment" round out the poinsettia, while Melissa Frances cream "Lace Trim" borders the design.
Just a note: Sharon has gotten a passel of gorgeous buttons and embellishments...I'm drooling!...check them out here!
Quite often I design cards without a greeting on the front panel. This way, I can use the card in any manner for any event during the holiday. Just add your sentiment to the inside, and you're ready to go!
You can find the above named supplies at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you can come back tomorrow for day five of a CAS Christmas-Stamp Simply Style!
Edited to add to answer Traci's question: there is dimensional tape between each of the poinsettia flower's three layers. The layers are die cut from the same decorator paper pad (Lost and Found Christmas) with the edges slightly bent up for dimension.
