Handmade Vintage Holiday Cards

Vintage Christmas Cards that I made!

Recently my Mom and I took a vintage card making class at Archiver’s.  For those of you not familiar with Archiver’s, it is a large scrapbooking store.  This was my Mom’s first class to take and she was really excited about it.  I was happy to have some neat handmade cards to send out to my family too! 

We made 4 vintage cards and 1 gift tag.  Making these 5 things took 3 hours!  We did alot of embossing, cutting, pasting, stamping, coloring and used special tools to give them the vintage look. 

I really enjoy taking classes at Archiver’s.  Since I do not have a big collection of scrapbooking tools, it is more appropriate for me to go there to make things and use their supplies.   Though I have made two really cool scrapbooks at home (more on one of those after Christmas).   During this vintage card class, my mom said “this could become addicting.”  And I have to agree.  I love to design and create.  And this is one addiction I wouldn’t mind having!

What is one thing you’ve done to make your holiday season meaningful and memborable?

    Lovely job. I haven’t seen cards like this in forever and didn’t realize how much I missed them. 😉

  2. What cute Holiday cards! This reminds me I need to get a move on ordering our Christmas cards and start getting them sent out!

    These are beautiful! I really like the “Peace, Love, & Joy” one. I’d love to take this class. I could see how this would get addicting, I’m already thinking of ways to variate these! Thanks for sharing.

    These are so amazing. Nice job! Thanks for sharing, they really are beautiful. I really love giving mushy, incredibly sentimental gifts. This year we are doing a “Thought a Day” Jar for my grandmother. My mom, sister and I are gathering 365 photos, prayers, stories, messages, thoughts, etc. about and for my grandmother, putting them in a business card size piece of paper and putting them all into a jar. And once a day, for a year, she can pull out a card and find out something that someone else thought about her. We are asking friends and family via Facebook, e-mail, phone calls, etc. It’s a lot of work, but totally worth it! My grandmother has made a big impact on our little town and I want to make sure she knows it.

    • Impressive! That is the best idea I’ve heard in a long time. So thoughtful of everyone and how nice that each day she can wake up and have a mood booster everyday by reading one of her personal messages!

    The biggest thing I’ve done to make the holiday memorable hasnt happened…. YET… but it’s set up, I booked a session with a really greta photographer to have an updated family photo taken for my parents while I’m home!

  10. Wow! Those are great! I can’t believe you made them!

    OMG, these are absolute fabulosity! I should find a workshop like that here in So Cal. It looks terribly fun to make, even if it is time-consuming. But one can totally tell they’re one-of-a-kind masterpieces and made with so much love 🙂 The recipients are very lucky! Good job!

  16. those cards are AMAZING!!! you could sell them!
