Over at http://craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge.blogspot.co.uk/ the theme for this weeks Christmas card is P is for penguins or anything else beginning with P. So far I have done penguins, polar bears, puddings, poinsettias and now it is the turn of the humble post box
Again the card is part of my charity recycling project and have been made from pre loved Christmas cards donated by work colleagues with the addition of some freebie backing papers and bits from my scrap box..
This image and sentiment were actually one card but I split it and then trimmed both parts and matted them onto silver mirror card. I used the red mirror card backing to highlight the red of the post box and wrapped it with a strip of lovely paper from my scrap box. It feels more like fabric and has lovely waves of silver and opaque white running through it. I added a square of red and white polka dot paper behind the sentiment and mounted the sentiment at an angle finishing with a sequin snowflake and clear gem.
Once again I will enter this card into the folllowing challenges
