Kaisercraft - St Nicolas Paper Collection - Layout and Cards

Another month has arrived, and Kaisercraft have released some tantalising new paper collections!   Today, I am showing the St Nicolas paper collection, which is full of old world Christmas papers - Santa's and beautiful, vintage inspired patterns - right up my alley!

Lots of fussy cutting, and a touch of glitter for the roses...

Gorgeous little birds, resembling Robin-Redbreast's adorn many of the papers, and elements.

..and a card, using one of the many vintage Santa images - they are so sweet!!!

Some of the paper elements include ready made sentiments, perfect for making quick and easy Christmas cards.  I highlighted using Gold Stickles, every element used.


...and another card, using another vintage image.... teamed with some Collectable elements, roses, and fussy cut holly leaves.

I don't think I have ever made a centre step card - wasn't as difficult as I thought!!
The next few months will fly by and Christmas will be here before I know it!! Yikes.... where does the year go?  

Thanks for coming by to visit, I love reading your comments.. Don't forget to stop by the Kaisercraft Blog for further inspiration from the other design team members...

Have a wonderful day
Sandie
