Happy Holidays Mail Art

This is another Christmas Mail Art to share.
Here are the steps to it.
1) Use a pattern paper as the base of the card. Distress the edges with the scissors distressing technique and ink it with pine needles and black soot distress ink.
2) Cut out a square piece from another pattern paper and ink it with frayed burlap distress ink and hand stitch around it.
3) Use a die cut tag to trace and cut out from a white card stock and ink it with faded jeans, pine needles, shabby shutters and frayed burlap. Then, use the "Water Distressing" technique on it to create the distressed effect.
4) Stamp the image using black solvent ink directly on it and paste it to the card. Outline the piece with a black pen and use an opal white liquid pearls to doodle around it too.
5) Draw a swirl on a black card stock and cut it out. Outline it with a white pen and use a silver liquid pearls to embellish it. Paste it to the left of the card.
6) Add a strip of scallop on the bottom border of the card and doodle on it using white pen and glitters (Stickles) for details.
7) Add a flower to the lower left corner. The address box had been stamped on a white card stock and cut it out. Ink the edges using faded jeans and old paper distress ink.

I've just bought a mini laptop and this post is my first post using it. This is such a light laptop and perfect to bring along during this trip. I'm still trying to get use to it small!
