Vintage Christmas

Here's my latest christmascard (I felt I needed the calm in a christmascard between all the black, orange, purple and green for Halloween).

At Sketcy Colors I found the sketch and inspiration to make this card - I guess that it is no secret that some of their DT-girls are amongst my favourite norwegian cardmakers...

I used papers from Pion Design ("Stjärnhimmel" and "Vinterlek"). I distressed the edges of all panels with DistressInk "OldPaper". The snowflakes are made with a Magnolia DooHickey-die and a Martha Stewart-punch (with a rhinestone in the middle). I used Spellbinders Fancy Tags for the sentimenttag. The sentiment is a tiny stamp from Ladybug and Friends stampset ("Julehilsener").
Inside the card I continued the "snowflake-theme" and the sketch...
I made the "bottompart" of the sketch into a pocket, with place for a tag (for personal greetings).
I sew a golden snowflakecharm to the ribbon on the tag.
On the left side I stamped a christmasgreeting (Norsk Stempelblad, plate 21B).
On the backside I used the same papers, snowflake, and my personal "Handmade by Lisbeth"-stamp.

I'll enter my vintage christmascard into these challenges:
