LOTV Festive Post.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
I am here today to share a Christmas card.
I have started early this year as last year there wasn't enough to go around. Lol!!!
This card is for my cousin in Canada.

I used Festive Post from LOTV 
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and LOTV Woodland Wishes papers.
Other dies used are Cheery Lynn nautical wheeler doily, Marianne Design clock and ivy circle. Doohickey jolly tag.
I have inked the papers and die cuts with Tim Holtz tattered burlock distress ink.
The small doily and pom - pom trim are from The Ribbon Girl and the jingle bell and corps mini bag are from Live & Love Crafts.
The sentiment is from set 5 Christmas circular stamps also from LOTV
I stamped the sentiment onto Neenah cardstock with rich cocoa ink.

The flowers and berries are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have given the flowers some snow effect by applying Winsor & Newton modelling paste.

Here is a close up of these adorable little darlings.
I have sprinkled some Frantage shabby white embossing enamel around the image and added lots of Snow - Tex to the postbox and ground. I love the stuff!

Inside the card is decorated with Woodland Wishes paper and a Spellbinders stately circle.

I hope you like my card?
