Happy Holidays

Go ahead, tuck some snowy wishes in an envelope.  They're guaranteed not to melt!

Happy Holidays
Envelope seals always catch my eye.  I love how the little decal sits so proudly on the pointy flap as it beckons you to "Open Me, Open Me".  That happy thought was the inspiration for this little card.

Two pieces of cardstock were fashioned to resemble an envelope and were mounted to a card prepared with embossed dots.  All shading was done in Bahama Blue Memento to coordinate with the card base.

A snowflake (Penny Black) die cut from white cardstock, colored with Memento Luxe Rhubarb Stalk and embellished with a small pearl represents the envelope seal.

Have a wonderful day,
