Happy Friday!
I hope you had a wonderful week! Since Christmas is fast approaching, I've decided I need to get serious about gift buying. I was gone all last week so I missed the after Thanksgiving sales, and since Thanksgiving came late this year, I really need to buckle down! I think I'll be ok with Christmas cards...but I do need to get some envelopes addressed. No stress...Right??? Aye yi yi! 

My postcard style Christmas card today features more of the wonderful little Christmas Village images. All were stamped, colored and fussy cut. I used a large postage stamp die to cut the red is actually a square die but I resized it to make it rectangular. After sponging the edges with a darker red ink, I stamped the tree line border across the top, added some snow with a white gel pen, then attached my village images. The greeting was stamped on a smaller white postage stamp die cut,  the edges were sponged w/ blue, a circle was traced around it and a few "post mark" lines were drawn on top. The snowflake background was stamped on the white card front using the love letter ink. The card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
