Letter from Christmas Goose

Today I'm sharing a card with two new stamp sets: Christmas Goose 721 digi version DIGI721B and Tree Scene 723 digi version DIGI723J

For the focal point I combined both digi images and printed it to the smooth white cardstock. Image is colored with alcohol base markers. I added Crystal Ice Glitter with Sakura Glue Pen to the tree branches and light bulbs. Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape. After adhering image layer in center of it I added Laser Blue Glitter rest of the revealed tape.

For the background I added sentiment from Christmas Goose to the Tree Scene digi image and printed them to the watercolor cardstock. I used Distress Ink pads for coloring. I also added Crystal Ice Glitter with Sakura Glue Pen to the tree branches and the stars.

For the fun red-blue-white edge I adhered 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape to the edges of the white cardstock and used x-acto knife to cut the protective sheet of the tape. This way I could add different glitters where I wanted. I used Bridal, Fire Engine Red, Laser Blue glitters. 

Because the background edge looks like an old envelope I couldn't resist not to used Spellbinders Postage Stamps die behind the Christmas Goose image.
