Are you still hoarding stacks of vintage postcards or bingo cards? How about reproductions, like these from Jenni Bowlin Studios?

Bingo cards and postcards make great bases for RAD Christmas ornaments that have a kitschy and vintage feel. Gather ribbons, tinsel bits, mini ornaments, bead, glitter, punched paper and chipboard shapes and more to decorate your cards in a custom way.

I followed the color scheme in these Christmas themed Bingo Cards of pink + red + green to make them but most bingo cards are rather plain. You can choose whatever color scheme you like, just make sure it's festive and fun!


On this Bingo Card ornament, I used a plastic ballerina as the center piece of a ribbon rosette and stamped a cute vintage deer directly onto the bingo card.

You can use spray inks and chalk inks to give the cards a vintage feel. Consider spray painting the backs to give them a gold or silver color. The overspray will also help the fronts look aged.

What do you create with your bingo cards and postcards?
