Welcome to this weeks sketch challenge for the Paper Craft Crew’s weekly challenge.   This week we have a themed challenge for you, and the theme of this challenge is Very Vintage.  I spent a lot of time researching vintage cards.  I looked up many different samples online and the first couple cards that I came up with were based on my research.  I did a couple cards that were watercolored ornaments and they were just not working.  Then I did a card using my Stampin’ blends and a non Stampin’ Up! vintage Santa stamp that would have worked but I just couldn’t bring myself to use it.  I settled on a Christmas tree card that has a vintage feel but also is very clean and simple at the same time. Here’s a look at today’s card.

Here’s a look at this weeks theme card.

To create my card today I took a piece of the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper Stack and cut it down to 4 x 5 1/4.  I placed this on a Thick Whisper white Card Base cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I stamped the triangle stamp in the set in Garden Green and then the stamp that you fill in with  Lemon Lime Twist and the then the small stamp in real red at the bottom to make the tree base.  I punched a star out of gold foil and attached it to the top of the tree.  I cut the tree out using my paper snips.  I layered this all on a large stitched circle and popped it up on the card base using stampin’ dimensionals.  To finish off the card I stamped a simple peace at the top of the circle.

I hope that you will play along with us this week at the paper craft crew card challenge. You can visit this week’s challenge by clicking on the theme challenge card.  If you would like any of the products you have seen today you can pick them up in my online store 24/7.
