Festive Friday: Retro Christmas


Happy Saturday my friends!  I'm popping into share a couple of cards that I made a while ago, but haven't share here before. This week the challenge at Festive Friday is to make a retro feeling Christmas card. Two cards in my stash immediately came to mind.  The shapes and fonts on these cards immediately make me think retro. I love that you should go a bunch of different ways with this theme from retro shapes to vintage retro cards.  Looking forward to seeing how it inspires others too!

And now I'm off to get ready for the day...Collin has a baseball scrimmage in just a bit!  Hope you have a fabulous Saturday.

PS If you ever want to know the supplies I use, please leave me a comment!
