Christmas In July

Good moring all!
 Today, I'm sharing my DT card for the new challenge at 
Crafting For All Seasons, where the theme this time is

My little A6 card was made using one of our sponsors images,
Whoopsie Daisy Sheet 284 the sentiment ticket is by Just Inklined.
The base card is Kraft & I've rounded the bottom corners
with a Woodware corner punch.

I coloured the image with my usual mix of Flexmarkers & Promarkers
I used traditional christmas colours & a spot of glitter!
The image was fussy cut then mounted on to a mat of kraft & DP.
Which I wrapped with some twine.
The DP is from Papermania & has been in my stash since last year.
The snowflakes on it are embossed, I think you can just about make that out!

Another little look at my card, from the side. You can just about
see that the inside is decorated too!
As most of my Christmas cards have to be posted in the UK mail,
I have made this card fairly flat to allow the use of  a regular postage stamp.
Thanks for popping in today! I greatly value your visits & comments!
