2 x Landstoken Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone,
Sandy here and unusually I've got two cards to share with you today, both using Landstoken's Papers. :-)
The first card I made with Vintage Father Christmas - Brown.
Here I used the image from the 12x12 side as the focal point of the card. The two smaller images are from the backside with 4 x 6x6 designs. The frames around Santa I cut out with dies from Spellbinder's Fleur de Lis set and the borders on top were punched out with Martha Stewart Vintage Floral and Eyelet Punch. For decoration I used some Cheese Cloth, Red Poppies, Cream Coloured Rolled Roses, a White Chrysanth and some Decoration Berries from Kort og Godt.


My second card is also a Christmas Card, with Landstoken's Christmas Tree in Pink. The gorgeous image is from Inkido's "Vintage Angels" sheet.

I stamped the image with an old Magnolia sentiment stamp, and the scatter is a Stempelgledje stamp. Also here I used the Martha Eyelet Punch on top. The snowflake is a Spellbinder's die, which I lightly distressed with Walnut Stain and covered with Stickles Glitter Glue. Same goes for the Swirl from the Magnolia Doohickey Set "Leaf & Swirl". Oh and the brad is one of Creative Charms' beautiful Vintage Brads, available both in white and pink.
To create some layers, I used a Doily and for decoration the stunning Rhinestone Lace in "Heather Pink", again a couple of Rolled Roses, a Chrysanth, some Decoration Berries from Kort og Godt, alongside some feathers. The bow holding the Christmas Tree Charm was made with LLC's own Shabby Seam Binding (expected back in stock end of next week).

Thanks for visiting today.
Enjoy your Saturday and please stop by again tomorrow for Elizabeth's card.
If you love shabby chic and pink, you'll not want to miss it!!!

Speaking of pink...there's still plenty of time left to enter LLC's "Think Pink" Candy:

 Hugz,
Sandy
