Royal Mail

Well another couple of weeks has gone whizzing past, and before we know it Christmas will have been and gone!  For those of you like me who have a few, (good few) Christmas cards left to make, the current Oldie But Goodie Challenge will help you on your way. The theme this time is;

Let It Snow.

Up for grabs this time is "a lovely box of Christmas crafting goodies", and all you have to do, to be in with a chance of winning is make a card following the theme with a stamp that is over 6 months old. Remember though, no digi's allowed.

So using my Royal Mail Christmas stamp of a few years, I set to work on this card.




The image is Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers, & the embossing in done using Cuttlebug folders. Sentiments are LOTV & the snowflake is cut using a Dynamics Die.

Finally, the snowflake was inked with TH Pumice distress ink, the snow, flocked & card candi added to complete the project.

Now, why not pop over to the main An Oldie But A Goodie blog page, to see the great cards produced by the rest of the DT.

Challenges;
Oldie But Goodie - Let It Snow
Sketch n Stash - Their Sketch
PB&More - All Creatures Great & Small
Craft Your Passion - Let it Snow
The Pink Elephant - Embossing Jx
