Vintage Christmas Tree Card

Hi everyone!!! Today's card is a Vintage Christmas tree with lots of holly framing the image. Here, also, is one of my Boyds Bearstones.
A close up here to show the embossing and stitching and the little jingle bell on the bow.This is the inside of the card. I made a pocket to tuck in theater, movie, sport, or concert tickets....of course, CASH would always be nice too!!!! LOL



Well you know I love expect to see lots of them. The garland around the fireplace is filled with small little bears tucked in the branches. Mr. and Mrs. Clause are animated and lit up. The dolls are from the Boyds Bear collection and are probably 10 years old now. There are more things that light up on the mantel, but they don't show in the photograph. Hope you enjoyed the peek into my home. Let me know what you think!

This must have taken hours. It looks like a picture from Martha Stewart Living....maybe you should contact her, ha ha. Just lovely, and so warm and inviting. I have a Christmas village that takes me a weekend to assemble. Gotta get going on that. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

OMG, I got so caught up in your decorations, I forgot to tell you how beautiful your Christmas tree card is. Pretty detailing too.
