Theme Thursday - Vintage - my vintage cards for a Victorian Christmas shop and my hand painted gift tags!!!

hi Everyone!!! Years ago I was in a Victorian craft show and I created a ton of Vintage Christmas cards using old postcards....these were a few of the cards I created ....the images from back then always seem so warm and sweet.....

I also made some gift tags....I cut these with my cricut machine on watercolour paper....then watercoloured them and embellished them so they are more handmade....I love the machine because cutting things out with scissors is so much work...this makes it easy....I think watercolouring each piece makes them more me .....

Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!!!

Hugs,
Diana

LOVE your handmade tags! My neighbor just got a Cricut and she said I could come over and watch her use it and even try it myself. It looks like there are so many cool options! I think the idea of using watercolor paper is neat, because you can take it a little further!
