Vintage Santa rolling Snowball Card

Vintage Santa rolling Snowball Card
Made with a old Vintage Card reproduced .by me. Wood Frame measures 15 X 12 and is painted in a Silver with some Black streaks in some areas giving a Antique Look.
Background is done with a collage of mixing scrapbook paper together, On the edges of the frame I embellished them with both red and green beads taken from two old broken Necklaces I had in my Junk box.
The Santa Card measures 9 X 6 and is framed out with Red, Green, and Ivory Buttons.
In the center you can see Santa rolling a huge snowball and in the middle of the snowball I made a tree with other smaller buttons and a clear plastic star at the top. I used a silver small heart for the tree stand.
I did make the tree from Styrofoam board to give it a 3 dimensional effect. I covered it with green felt, then put the buttons on.
Merry Christmas

Vintage reproduced Small Children Christmas Card

Vintage reproduced Small Children Christmas Card Wood Oak Frame measures 7 X 5, I outlined 3 of the edges with alternating Red and Green small ¼ inch buttons. The Vintage card shows 2 young girls peeking from behind a curtain at the Christmas Tree, I would assume this was Christmas Eve. On the right hand side near the bottom I used both red and crystal rhinestones to form a tree, at the bottom I used green rhinestones to form the trunk of the tree. At the top I put a green button for effect and then on top of that I added a star. This Art piece has it’s own Easel. Enjoy
