merry mail !!

to make this card I inked the 6x4" cardblank using tim holtz distress ink pads. I then stamped a foliage icon (LOTV- set 78) using the same ink pad over the entire background. I added brown ink to the edges. I cut a mat of stamping cardstock and stamped the image (LOTV- Christmas robins) using memento, then coloured this with copics. I added ink to this mat and again used brown to darken the edges. I tied a co-ordinating ribbon to the top with a small knot then matted this layer on to some gold mirri card. i stamped my sentiment (LOTV- set 8) on to a scrap bit of cardstock inked it to match the card and cut it out. for the postmark lines, I directly stamped onto the card once everything else had been glued. to finish this card I added some glitter to the snow. I think the muted browns and post mark create a vintage feel to the card.
