Christmas Delivery!

Hey there. I realize it's 90+ degrees outside here in Chicago and I'm posting a Christmas card, but hey, you have to stay ahead! This would be a cute card as a thank you to my mailman! With a little gift card slipped in there, what do you think?

I pulled out my trusty ol' scraps and went to town. I craft without a plan really. Sometimes I loosely use a sketch, but most of the time, I cut, glue and go. This was one of those.

I colored in my adorbs image from the Barkley Christmas Set-1st Class Christmas. The sentiment is also from that set as well. The whole Barkley line are so fun to color. I pulled out my Spectrum Noir markers and went to town. I used CG2, DG2, DR3, True Black, EB5, BT2, BG6, TB1, BG1, BG6, BGR1, BGR3, PP1, EB1, EB2, EB7, EB8, IG1, IG4, DR5, DR7, and the blender pen. I then diecut it out and used the Spray & Sparkle Glitter Varnish-Silver to coat the image in a fine mist of "snow." LOVE that stuff!!! I'm going to order the other colors as well. Just be sure to spray that outdoors on a non-windy day. :)

On the kraft piece, I used the bottom half of the embossing folder, Christmas Elegance, for just the snowflakes.

I took a photo on an angle to show you the glitter spray. LOVE this stuff.
I then just assembled it to how I liked it, added a little country-esque bow and there you have it! A simple and elegant holiday card perfect for the mailman, delivery driver if he frequents your place/business, or just anyone that needs a little smile during the holidays! These are great to have on hand just in case. Hope you enjoyed my card today.
