Classic Holiday Inspirations...

It's Day 2 of the PTI Countdown and today is all about classic holiday inspiration.  I loved seeing all the Christmas cards come in the mail when I was little.  So many bright colors and lots of glitter and shimmer.  I did some Pinterest surfing and took inspiration from many different "vintage" cards and prints and decor.

For this first card, I decided to create my own plaid and add these 2 adorable little critters from the new set Christmas Critters.

These little guys are so easy to stamp and OH so cute!  I added a popped up sentiment and some brown pearls for eyes, to finish this card.

If you look under Vintage Christmas Cards on Pinterest, you will see how I found inspiration for this next card....

I created a simple scene using the new images from Winter Village.  I added in some blending in the background and glitter on the evergreens.  I did a soft Fresh Snow ink border around the Spring Rain card base to give it that vintage feel.

See you back tomorrow for another day of the PTI Countdown!
