vintage ornaments revisited

Happy December everyone! Once again, the month has flown by and it's time already for the Papertrey Ink senior design team challenge.

Today we are revisiting Vintage Ornaments and Vintage Ornaments Additions. This set debuted in October of 2009 and I know that Dawn used her own collection of vintage ornaments as inspiration for designing this set.


The set has a definite retro/vintage look and feel. One thing that is fun to do is to take a color combination that was typical of the time and use that in your project. This combination of green (New Leaf) and red (Pure Poppy) definitely fits the retro/vintage vibe for sure. I used a fringey silver pipe cleaner that I had found at a craft store to add some tinsel bling along with the added rhinestones on the ornaments.


The shape of the Tag Sale #5 die was perfect to combine with this particular ornament shape. I tied some New Leaf bakers twine to "hang" the ornament from the top of the tag.


Several tags make up the background for the card and I hung lots of vintage ornaments across the front of the card.


See what the rest of the Papertrey Ink senior design team created with the Vintage Ornaments and Vintage Ornaments Additions sets: Nichole, Betsy, Dawn, Maile, and Lisa will all have projects to share on their blogs today.

I used the ornament decoration images to create the background designs on the cards stamped with a silver ink. These ornaments are also "hanging" from the top of the focal point piece.
