Ho Ho Ho

Hello again!  Back today with one of my all-time-favorite stamps from Stamping Bella.  Love her so much that I had to stamp her twice in my card.  =)

So this is Polly Packages and she's freakin adoreable, don't you think???  I coloured her up with Copics and added Glossy Accents to her little Christmas package bundle.  I used velvet ribbon, sheer ribbon and lace on this card.  I also tried to add little snowflake die cuts, but it just felt like too much, so I left them in the picture anyway.... I'm not above using props to make my cards look better... lol.

Lots of glittler on the white snow flake die and on all of Polly's trim & scarf.  I absolutely love both sides of this Basic Grey "aspen frost" Christmas paper... and bought lots so I hope you don't get tired of it - lol.

And here's where I stamped Polly Packages again on the inside.  I used the MFT letter dies for "ho ho ho".

Now... a few important things before I forget:

You said "Props". (LOL) Seriously, thanks for making my Christmas card so far ahead of time. If you mail it now, it should arrive in my mailbox sometime before New Year's rolls around. Yes, the mail between Canada and the US is that slow. And yes, I love your card (and props) THAT much!

I love her too! Lovin the curled edges of the paper and all that holiday design paper as well! Then you went and topped it off with the awesome Ho Ho Ho sentiment! Perfect!

Polly is sweet - she's one of the first Christmas images I got from Emily. I love the "distressed" look and the rolled edges on your card. You made me laugh with your props! The inside is cute too with the HO HO HO and the image stamped - I love to do that too :)

Oh Carla, I love her- Polly Packages is one of my go to Christmas images for the last couple of years- love the distress edges and the Ho HO HO inside is perfect.
