Faux Envelope Card

For my Tuesday Morning Sketches DT card, click here.

Hello, everyone!  My holiday cards continue!  For this one I made a faux envelope design!

I started with the patterned paper (EnoGreeting Christmas Collection) and mounted it on green and then red cardstock.  Next I adhered a faux robin postage stamp (Gecko Galz Altered Christmas Digital Collage Sheet).  Then I adhered label and greeting die-cuts from my old stash, and a cute vintage snowman (Gecko Galz Frosty Digital Collage Sheet).  To finish off my card, I stamped the vintage postmark and elf delivery greeting (stamp set free with magazine) and Special Delivery notation (The Artistic Stamper Carte Postale). 

I would like to support the following challenges: ABC Christmas X for fauX (faux envelope, faux postage stamp) UE: Beccy's Place - Month of Holiday Cards I'm revisiting "H" for Happy Holidays UE: Cardz TV 102 AG 3/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Use Glitter UE;Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November UE; Cupcake Inspirations Snowman 1/3; Cute Card Thursday Festive UE; DL.ART November Linky UE 1/d; Double D What is Your Christmas Style (for this card, Vintage) 1/3; Dragonfly Dreams Christmas/ Winter UE; Gecko Galz Peace on Earth Customer Challenge UE; Gecko Galz Facebook Group Winter Holidays UE; Gecko Galz Facebook Group Autumn Colours - see graphic below UE; The Outlawz Festive Friday Christmas UE; Winter Wonderland Use Holly and/or Ivy 2/3 (see postage stamp); Word Art Wednesday 414-415 AG w Uplifting Sentiment wk1 1/5

I was just taking my lunch break and had to see this card. I love the delivered by elf No 1225 stamp. Could that be any cuter!! Such a clever idea.

This is lovely Kitty! You've done a wonderful job creating an "envelope" that looks like it's just come from the North Pole. Wouldn't a child love to receive something like this? Actually, I think anyone would! The robin stamp is lovely as is the darling little snowman. Very clever.
