A Vintage Christmas

Oct 11, 2016 Hero Arts Info

We have a special post for you today from a very talented stamper all the way from Sweden! Please join us in welcoming Karin Åkesdotter to the blog. We’re honored to be able to share not one, but two, of her gorgeous vintage Christmas cards.

Hi everyone! This is Karin from PeppermintPatty’s Papercraft and I am so excited to be guest designing here today. I’ve had a wonderful time playing with Hero Arts beautiful new vintage sets.

Merry Christmas

For the first card I simply stamped the beautiful mistletoe stamp from the Happy Holly Days set two times and colored them with Copic markers.


I then fussy cut them and tied them together with a thin piece of red ribbon. (I actually didn’t have red ribbon, but white that I colored with my Copic markers — a super fast and easy way to get ribbon in exactly the color you want!) The sentiment is from the beautiful Snowy Tree set.

Christmas Blessings

For my second card I started out by stamping the fir twig from the Vintage Christmas Post set with green ink and then diecut the panel using the Rectangle Infinity Dies. I diecut it two ways to get it wider than it is from the beginning. I then stamped my cones with dark brown ink and colored them with Copic markers before fussy cutting them.


The cone stamp is from Happy Holly Days. I then added them to my panel with foam adhesive along with some red pearls. The sentiment is from the Holiday Messages and Tags set.

I share my cards, watercolors and papercraft projects on my blog and Instagram. Have a great day!

We simply love these elegant and timeless designs. Karin, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cards with us today!
