Christmas Postcard

Hello and good morning to you ...
Not feeling too well this morning ... but I don't have to be anywhere so I can just rest a bit ...

The Jingle Belles prompt this week is Going Postal ... you can read all the details on the Jingle Belles blog and see the lovely samples by Stephanie and Lauren ...

I just adore anything "postal" so this one was more a choice of what to use and which way to go ...
This is what I finally came up with ... A pocket card


Those lovely images are by Iralamija ... I love her vintage images
and I used a couple of postal stamps too 


I literally just inked up the part of the stamp I wanted to use ... i.e. postcard


The 'carte postale' I did on my computer straight onto the digital paper ... the pocket was cut on my Cameo


Ribbon, twine and button are from my supplies and the pretty lace is from The Ribbon Girl

My Christmas card box is now getting quite full and I have to say that these pocket ones are my most favourite.

Have a wonderful day and a beautiful weekend 

~ Ros ~

There's so much to marvel at in this card... first of all the basic design choice - a pocket card... how clever! Such a pretty card.
