O Come all Ye Faithful

I have two cards to share today that I was inspired to make from the Featured Stamper challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.  HelenG was the featured stamper and I CASED her card here.
Hers was a congrats card - I made mine Christmas - but used the same fun Center Step Fold for the card design.
The carolers are cut from the Victorian Carolers Die, which I have, but I received these two already cut in an order from The Funkie Junkie Boutique  -  Linda always includes seasonal treats in every order you get from her!  The music page was also in my packet - I think it's from Idea-ology Christmas Ephemera.
Here's the fiddler.
and here's the female caroler -  so vintage looking and perfect for a Christmas card!
I splattered some white acrylic paint over the front to simulate snow -    It's so difficult to splatter evenly -  I should have practiced a bit before doing it on the card - a few of my splatters are pretty big!?!

I'm linking my cards to:

Hi Julia. These are fabulous! I love the layout of these, with those additional panels, very unique! The music sheets are definitely a great addition, and your papers are so festive! What a fantastic holiday card set!! I'm still working on reconnecting with everyone after my time away this last year. Hope all has been well with you. hugs :)

Love your vintage carolers step cards, Julia. I know what you mean about the splatters. I have learned to dilute my paint quite a bit and do my 1st splatter on a scrap paper. I also seem to do better with a flat paint brush. I still love your cards. TFS my friend. Hugs

Great old-fashioned look to these. Love the silhouette figures against the music and vintage-style dp.
