Designer Notes:

1. Stamp the children using Mudslide and heat set.

2. Color using the Decades inks and a water brush. Fussy Cut.

3. Apply Glue Gloss on areas to highlight with glitter. Apply on a tag from the Christmas Emporium collection.

4. Spritz seam binding with the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch. Crinkle the ribbon, and then tie in a bow. The Smooch will help hold the shape of the ribbon better than water alone, and will also add a subtle sparkle. Attach to the small tag.

5. Stamp the postcard parts on a rectangular piece of white cardstock, using the Dark Cashmere. Ink over the entire image with the Venetian Lace. Stamp the sentiment with the watermark ink and emboss with gold powder. Ink the edges with the Dark Cashmere. Add a bit of color to the holly leaves and “Post Card” using the water brush and Decades inks.

6. Die cut flowers and spritz with the Cosmic Pink Smooch. Crinkle the flowers and then unfold them and assemble.

7. For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment with the watermark ink and emboss with gold powder. Frame with a die cut.
