allywhitecat and Smeared Inks December Blog Hop

My partner is Kristy Lee how awesome is that.
 My piece is simple. I used manilla folder and a template I have had for a long time for post cards I cut out two front and back.

I made the front first using a image from creative souls and Tim Holts ticket.
I inked with Victorian Velvet stain and Distress picket fence.
I cut the image to where it made a pocket for the die cut ticket.
the stamp was part of the image and i cut it and moved it to where the postage goes.
I used a script stamp and Distress ink Dusty Concord
The snowflakes are from Tim Holts stamps I glittered in Distress clear rock candy.
I added some lace trim blings in green,a rhinestone embellishment and a star pin, with the paper white rose I glittered in Tim Holtz clear rock candy.

The back
I used victorian velvet stain and picket fence again
The die cut is from Tim Holtz collection
Liquid pearls Hydrangea
the small die cut is a ticket with a christmas scripture stamp on it.
and a turn key from a package from Michaels.
Hope she likes it
