Vintage Christmas Cards

And another one! :) You just can't have enough Christmas Cards ^^ These two cards are for my coworker, too. Hope he's going to like them! :) Both cards are inspired by some cards I found on Pinterest (you can find them on my wall "Christmas Cards") I added the first card also in the Christmas theme Challenge from Scrapping Everyday Miracles.

With a French sentiment, an embossed background and with crackle paint covered snowflakes. The patterned paper is from the Heirloom Collection from DCVW.

On the second card I used the same background paper as for the first one. The Winter landscape is also an image I found on Pinterest, using the words "Vintage Winter Landscape". Just printed it out with my printer at home. The two flowers are made by using the tattered flowers die from Tim Holtz, the Mistletoe is from Prima. 

I haven't a cutting die in the shape of a window,  so I cut that out by hand - very annoying... But I like the result and it was worth it. The window frame is painted with crackle paint, too.

The sentiment is German and means Merry Christmas. It's heat-embossed with an copper embossing powder. 

Have a nice evening :)
