Wishing you a Merry Christmas {Postcard}

Hi Everyone Ivett here again with another project! I would like to share this masculine Christmas card/postcard I made for my Godson whom is serving overseas this Holiday season sniff sniff. He and I are very close I have put together this Wishing you a Merry Christmas Postcard that I have packed in a box for him that includes a tiny Xmas tree, hot cocoa mix, some cute gifts and tinsel to. I call it a Christmas party in a box =)  I used some recycled corrugated cardboard and put it to good use as my background to this card. Then I added a few die cuts that I jazzed up by adding some Lindy’s magic to them!

 Here I added some of my Sandra Dee Sepia to the Old Jalopy before I embossed it with Twilight Bronze Slate. I also used Midnight Pewter on the wheels to give them that beautiful dark look.
 I trimmed my tree with Luscious Lime Flat Fabio, Bells of Ireland Green Starburst Spray, and added snow caps with Purely White embossing powder.
 For the running board on the Old Jalopy I added Midnight Pewter & Silver Moon Sapphire to make it glisten like snow!

The dies are from the Tim Holtz alterations line and the Christmas tree is from a Sizzix die. The stamps I used are some of my favorites from the Cavallini Papers & Co. line. The paper I used is form Basic Grey and Tim Holtz Distress ink in Vintage photo.
