Christmas Post



  With all the current heat and sunshine it feels strange to be making my Christmas cards.
  Looking through last years left over wrappings I found some sparkly Christmas ribbon. I backed this onto dark pink card and wrapped it round the spotty backing paper before attaching it to the base card. The Lili of the Valley stamp, called 'Lots of Letters', is coloured with Promarkers and mounted onto red mirri card. Glitter frostings were added to the 'fur' trimmings and crystal glitter to the snow. The image was mounted onto grey window pane paper and dark pink card and then attached to the card with foam pads. Five snowflakes cut using Spellbinders dies were glued to the topper and three twinkle candi were glued to the top and bottom of the card. Finally a mini envelope and Merry Christmas card were added.

 I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
 Lili's Little Fairies - Christmas in July
 Eureka - Christmas in July
 Creative Corner - let it sparkle
 Stamping Sensations - Sketch/summer colours
