Celebrating Christmas in Vintage and Retro Style


Hey there Peeps!  I just want to share how much I love Petaloo flowers and how versatile they are.  I’m sharing 2 projects today with very different styles but each accented beautifully with the Petaloo blooms. I’m even using the same paper collection. One project is very vintage inspired and one is in a retro theme.

Retro Happy Holidays Christmas Greeting Card


This card with a non-traditional color scheme has non-traditional flowers accented with a Glittered Star Pick.


I’ve tucked in a few Velvet Holly Leaves to fill in this arrangement.


These cute little metal skate charms and large altered chipboard snowflake tie into the theme so well and accent the vintage chipboard child image.


A few holiday embellishments like tinsel trim and printed ticket finish this card off with retro style.

Santa Bingo Vintage Christmas Greeting Card


This card is such a lovely combination of textural Regal Poinsettias and vintage images.


Pom Pom trim, seam binding and silver striped bakers twine add even more texture and detail.


I turned this ticket into a tag easily by punching a small hole in the top and threading in some twine and securing tiny red wooden spools.



Tucking an additional Poinsettia in behind the bingo card brings the arrangement into the top corner.

  1. Reeeeeeally like the first card. It seems more and more people are going to the blues for Christmas cards nowadays rather than the traditional colours and I like it, a lot! You put things together so well! Can’t wait to see what you do next!
    Look forward to your e-mails in the mornings over my coffee.
