Retro Christmas & World Cardmaking Day

Happy Saturday! Did you know today is World Cardmaking Day? According to the "Days of the Year" website, (here), cards have played an important role in social circles for hundreds of years. If you have just stumbled on to my blog and are thinking about or new to cardmaking, please let me be your guide to this fun hobby. My contact information is on the right sidebar. Toward the end of this post, I have listed info on the special sale going on right now to commemorate this cool holiday. 

Last week, I posted this vintage Christmas card on a facebook group that is just for Stampin' Up! demonstrators. Imagine my surprise, to find out that a Stampin' Up! staff member picked my card for "pick of the week". My prize was a new stamp set in the mail this week! I did not already own the set called Christmas in the Making, so I was very excited see what I could come up with. 

Look how retro this card looks! When I'm going for a retro look, I adore using white, Bermuda Bay, Real Red & Black. It just POPS with those colors. And the red shoes! I love the tiny pumps and knew they needed to be red. This image is great for either coloring in totally, or just hints of color like I used. The full product list is later in the post. Hint: I stamped the little circle image twice on scrap paper, then stamped on the white cardstock. This made the Bermuda Bay just a bit lighter and perfect for the little bit of color I wanted.
