Wishing you a Merry Christmas Postcard by Ivett Carrillo

Hi Everyone! Ivett here again with another project! I would like to share this masculine Christmas postcard I made for my Godson whom is serving overseas this Holiday season.
He and I are very close, and I put together this and a box for him that includes a tiny Xmas tree, hot cocoa mix, some cute gifts and tinsel to0. I call it a Christmas party in a box =)
For the card, I used some recycled corrugated cardboard, and put it to good use as my background. 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.
 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. 

Check out how this came together on the video below:


Happy Holidays!
