I had fun playing with my rubber stamps for this card! I began by stamping the postcard from The Artistic Stamper Carte Postale in black, the text stamp from the same set in grey, and the postmark in pink. I inked around the edge of the postcard with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. I then stamped Inkadinkado Surprise in red, generic snowflakes in blue, and the sentiment in black.
The adorable Hanging Kitty clipart is from Imagine That Digistamp; I fussy-cut and popped up on foam tape. The little candy canes and reindeer clipart are from Gecko Galz Candy Cane Lane and Reindeer Game Collage Sheets, and I added two strips of metallic striped washi tape. I layered the postcard onto black cardstock, then onto patterned paper (Martha Stewart Love Notes) and then red cardstock. I stamped Special Delivery (from The Artistic Stamper set mentioned above) on the patterned paper.
