I have not made many Christmas cards so far this year, which is unusual for me. But I think (hope) I'm on a roll here. I received this paper with 12 vintage images as a advent calendar gift from my mum some years ago (no, I'm never going to be too old for that, lol), and finally I had the courage to cut into that paper. Sometimes when I like something so much, I want to "save it" for a special occasion.
All the other DPs used are freebie ones that came with 2 different magazines.
Here are the first two cards I've finished using these vintage images.
1) Card with the rectangle shaped topper
The lamp post was made with a Memory Box die, and I heat embossed with thick embossing powder, I

I added red and white twine and gold elastic ribbon and strip of DP with sentiments on it.
2) Card with the rounded tag shaped topper
This lamp post was a freebie gift together with the DPs used. I attached red and white twine to it.
I added a die cut fence, the word Christmas (Hero Arts) which I combined with a Dymo sentiment,
