A Very Merry Christmas

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!

Morning all, it's Thursday & it's time for me to post
my Just Inklined creation.

Here's my card!

I used an Elegant Square card blank  from  Craftwork Cards.
I love this shape!

The images is called Merry Christmas
Such a happy looking couple, don't you think!
I love snowmen & snowladies!
I've coloured them up with Promarkers & Flexmarkers, then cut out with a  
Scalloped Square nestie & used a chalk inkpad on the edges.
The paper is from the Papermania Festive Frolics Pad.
I've had it since last year but still have loads left!
I used some red vellum to matt the image & tore down the edges for added detail.
I also added some dew drop gems from my stash!

I wrapped the vellum & paper with twine & tied a bow.
The sentiment was created on the pc, I used a corner punch to round the ends.
This card is flat enough to go in the UK mail with a normal postage stamp.
Something I've had to think about this year as the cost of postage stamps has rocket up 
& I have rather a lot of Christmas cards to post!

I decorated the inside of the card too!
Could you imagine making an insert to fit this! lol
