Snow Vintage Postbox Shaker card (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with a Christmas card featuring  the beautiful Vintage Postbox stamp. This is a lovely stamp and not just for Christmas lol. It's a beautiful image to colour and by varying the colours you could use it all year round.

I coloured the image with Graph'It markers and added some glitter for a frosty sparkle. I decided to make a shaker card so I cut a square aperture in a piece of cardstock and used border punch to add some interest. I lined this with acetate and used 3d foam tape to create my shaker card adding some sparkly faux snow.

I dusted off some old border peel offs to frame the image and added  a sentiment with a little bow and a button to finish off.. 

I love to sit and colour on these cold evenings so I think I'll be making a few more of these. How are you doing with your Christmas cards? Keep checking back as my lovely teamies have got lots of inspiration lined up for you.
