Letters to North Pole - Last minute Christmas Cards!

Hello PND Fans! Betty here with another card. If you are still working on your last minute Christmas cards, you aren't the only one! Every year I say I'm going to start them early, but I don't get them started until November. The card I'm sharing today is simple and all I had to do was color this digital image from Paper Nest Dolls called, Letters to North Pole, and add some color for the sky and snow. This stamp also come in red rubber.

I used a frame die to cut the mat for my card front, added a few enamel dots. Then I printed a sentiment, cut it out, and I was done. Easy peasy! Give it a try, it's a fun stamp to color.
