Christmas Cards for Overseas - part 2 !

Hi everyone.  Wow - where are the days going?  I am so dis-organised this year!

I am struggling at the moment to get into the Christmas spirit and you would think that with Andy now home permanently,  I would be so looking forward to it.  Maybe, once the kids finish school and I start doing some present wrapping my mindset will improve.  Or maybe I need to have the Christmas music on full blast!

Anyways, how is the start of your week going?  I have a potluck lunch to go to tomorrow, so I have a white chocolate cheese cake to make today.  And we are also doing an ornament exchange, so I need to finish off either a tree or the angel today!

As for today's post, I thought I would share another card that I made for my overseas posting.

Once again I used a fabulous Polkadoodles CD.  This is a pre-coloured topper off of the wonderful Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs CD collection.  The sentiment was added from another CD, A Home For Christmas However, it is also a black and white digi - if you fancy colouring it up yourself, and is available as a single digi download HERE.

I inked all the edges and then just layered up the main image on some foam to add a small amount of depth.  No more embellishments because of posting.

For the inside I added a street lamp and some holly, along with a stamped sentiment from CTMH. 

I also added some Sakura Gel Pen to the fur trim, and candle - just to add a little sparkle.  I think you can just see it in the photo.

And there you have it.  Another set of cards for my overseas posting.  Seems I am not the only one that is shocked by the cost of postage lately!

Have a great week everyone.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy crafting.
