A Holiday Postcard

From The Funkie Junkie
Whoo hoo! I think the Our Creative Corner challenge this week was designed just for me - LOL! I simply love making "post cards" on my cards! If you scroll back through my blog, I'm sure you will find several more. So when I read Jennifer Meyer's challenge to the design team for this week, I jumped into gear. Of course, Post Card translates to Vintage in my mind so I sorted through my vintage images looking for something seasonal. I found three full sheets of Melissa Frances stickers that I simply had to have last year. I went so far as to order them off eBay and then of course, I used one or two stickers and the rest are still in my stash. So I picked this interesting "ice time" sticker with thoughts of using the SU Winter Post set to finish off the inside.

I am still running short on crafting time so was unable to finish off the inside panels of this card. The outer shell is Always Avacedo, followed by a layer of Real Red and Cosmo Cricket DP from last year's Oh Joy collection. The lower Real Red panel is punched with a Marth Stewart border punch. The 'Post Card" was created with the SU Winter Post set and a Melissa Frances sticker. The Merry Christmas stamp is from the SU Yuletide Montage set. Ribbon and a few buttons finish this creation off.

I am also entering this card into:
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. This week's challenge is Four Seasons - make a card inspired by any of the four seasons.
Gingersnap Creations - use buttons on your card
