Christmas postbox from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, we've got some gorgeous new stamps this month over at Chocolate Baroque so I've made a start on my Christmas cards using the beautiful Vintage Postbox stamp. This is a lovely stamp and not just for Christmas lol.

I coloured the image with Graph'It markers and added some glitter for a frosty sparkle. I decided to make a shaker card so I cut a square aperture in a piece of cardstock and used border punch to add some interest. I lined this with acetate and used 3d foam tape to create my shaker card adding Shaved Ice to create my snow.

I dusted off some old border peel offs to frame the image and added  a sentiment with a little bow and a button to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas: Vintage or anything Christmas
Deep Ocean: die cuts/punches
Penny Black and More: anything Christmas

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
