Impression Obsession Season's Greetings

Thursday is challenge day over at the Impression Obsession blog, and this week, the challenge is to make a card with a wreath.  So I chose to use this lovely Season's Greetings Mailbox K1027 stamp.  It is a gorgeous stamp and oh so fun to color with my Copic markers. 

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen paper from Cutcardstock.com.
Copics used:
House - B91, B94
Wreath and Holly - G24, R29
Post - E43, E44
Sign - R29, G40
Mailbox - C1, C3
I added glitter glue to the top of the wood pieces, the sign and all the snowy areas for some extra bling.  I airbrushed B21 into the sky then added falling snow with my white Glaze pen.

I wanted to use my new Martha Stewart border/corner punch.  Boy, those things are not easy to match up and get the size you want, thus my layered papers.  The DP is from Me&My Big Ideas.

This is a beautiful card! Love the mailbox and the touch of glitter on the snow. Looks like you were successful with that new punch! I like the DP paper; is it new this year?

Congrats!! Gorgeous card and truly deserving of the WIN! Guess you have to thank MS for the punch that is difficult to line up that resulted in layered papers. Funny how that worked out.
