Postale

This is a fairly simple card but i think elegant. Magnolia sent me this 4x6 card to work with. It is a really pretty shimmery CS and in my Scrapbook store those papers are quite pricey, so i did not want to cover this folded card with Designer Paper. I wanted the paper to be able to shine. So i simply added rub-on swirls on it with some pearl stickers to the card base. This would be a wonderful card you could mass produce for your Christmas cards. Instead of a rub on you could just stamp a flourish on your card base or even emboss it.

Just a quick reminder... don't forget to order the Magnolia Winter kit. I don't know when Magnolia will close the kit order and the Spring kit is up. This is a fabulous value you will get for your money.
Stamps: Magnolia Tilda (Christmas 2008 Collection), Stampin up: Carte Postale (one of my favorite stamp sets)
Coloring: Stampin up re-inkers
DP for layering behind Tilda is K & Company, rub-on: K& Company, Prima flower Christmas bubble, bell (source unknown)
