Vintage Christmas Card


My last effort at making a Christmas Card this year.
And you might just see some of the gold rub and buff and the misty silver white
here and there on the card to give it a frosty cold look.
 
I made this vintage Christmas for my daughter in law's parents in Japan.
I used vintage Christmas Carol music sheet.
A copy of a vintage Christmas card and vintage papers and ephemera.
It was really difficult cutting out that tiny robin, but  he was so cute I had just to.
.
This is the back of the card - the vintage music score was wrapped around, so too the card print.  I found a little bird which I thought finished it off - no Father Christmasses as they do not celebrate Christmas over there - but I wanted them to get a feel of our celebrations

Popped in the post to Japan in a mail art envelope of snow and stamped winter trees and firs and a winter snow bird on the back

I hope that they like it - I worked on it for two days on and off - and at least it is original

They will love it!
It really is rather special Lottie and I'm sure they will appreciate the work gone in to it and feel honoured that you made it just for them.
It's a work of art.
