Merry little Robin


Hello lovelies, hope you are well! Today I am sharing some DT creations that I have designed for 

I have created a vintage Christmas card using these stunning papers from the Merry Lil' Christmas creative kit. I just adore this little Robin!
 (My Mother used to love Robins, so every time I see one, I am fondly reminded of her) As you know, I just love anything vintage! and adding vintage to Christmas, I think is the perfect combination!

Here I have used a small Poinsettia die along with dark red card stock. The branches are created from Kraft card stock and Tim Holtz's Holiday Greens thinlit die set. I think they match perfectly with these beautiful papers! 

The vintage music paper is from my stash, and has really complimented the luxury green and red Tartan/Plaid designer papers from the kit. 

I have also created a small tag book to match my card. 

I used some Kraft card stock along with the smaller tag die from Tim Holtz's Tag collection die set. I decorated the outside with the same papers from the Merry Lil' Christmas creative kit. I also adhered a Tim Holtz Christmas word label and I added a mini paper clip as a closure. All edges of the card and paper have been distressed with Vintage Photo Distress ink. 

For the inside of the tag book, I scored and folded it into equal parts. I then decorated it with the same vintage music sheet. In the middle of the book, I added some left over scraps of paper from the kit and stapled them into the book. Quick and easy! 

On the bottom part of the tag, I used a Tim Holtz  'Happy Holidays' stamp along with Black Soot Distress ink. 

Thank you so much for stopping by the Den, I really do appreciate your visit! You can find more information on the Merry Lil' Christmas creative kit here:
