Polkadoodles - Digi Queens (Wk 3)

 Hello and welcome Polkadoodlers -

Hi there, well I'm back from my cruising holiday to Alaska - photos will follow in a few days (hopefully). Thankfully the jetlag has finally eased and my heads not so foggy now.  Anyhoo it's back to crafty business, and it's my turn to share my card with you today - the theme for the Digi Queen's this week is Christmas, my most favourite time of the year.  


Here's What I Did
I was spoilt for choice with Nikky's fabulous designs, but I finally picked 'Postbox' together with one of her gorgeous Christmas digi papers, both of which are from the 'Work & Play Festive Hollybobs' Collection 5.  To make my card I firstly matted and layered my printed off paper onto some co-coordinating cardstock on which I added the frame I made using a MFT square and arch die - to add a little bit of sparkle I placed a piece of white glitter card behind the aperture.  I coloured both the postbox image and the envelope with alcohol markers; both were then fussy cut out and glued onto the frame. Using foam tape I placed everything on top of the matted and layered card base to give extra dimension. To finish off I added a touch of glitter (of course!) and a few gems.
Here's What I Used
Digi Stamp: 'Postbox' available from the 'Work & Play Festive Hollybobs' Collection 5. 
Paper/Cardstock (CS): 'Work & Play Festive Hollybobs' Collection 5 Christmas Digital Paper, Papermainia CS, Craftwork Cards Super Smooth Colouring CS, White Glitter CS
