Xmas Postcard Card

Created this not so typical Christmas card using Kraft postcard cardstock. I recycled a 2014 cancelled Christmas postage stamp featuring Rudolph. I liked the fact that the envelope I got the postage stamp from had a Rudolph postmark image next to the postage stamp. I will put this postcard in an envelope so the cancelled postage stamp is for decoration only. Used a Cuttlebug Winter Borders snowflake embossing border. Stamped Hero Arts sentiment & Poinsettias.

Supplies List 

embossing: Cuttlebug Winter Borders emb border - snowflakes
ink: Memento LadyBug  VersaFine Onyx Black
machine: Sizzix BIGkick
paper: cardstock -  Canvas Corp Kraft postcard
recycle: cancelled Christmas Rudolph postage stamp - scrap
stamp:   Hero Arts LL795 Poinsettias & sentiment
