Jolly Christmas Mail Art

This is another Christmas mail art from me.
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 black soot distress ink.
2) Cut out a rectangle piece from a white card stock and stamp the snowflake image on it using solvent ink. Distress it using the scissors distressing technique and ink it with weathered wood distress ink. Hand stitch around it.
3) Cut a strip of scallop from a black card stock and paste it on the left of the piece above. Doodle some stitches on it using a white doodling pen.
4) The layering on the upper left and bottom right of the card are actually cut out from a stamp packaging and later doodled on it using a black and white doodling pen. I've also added some liquid pearls for details and dimension.
5) The die cut flourishes had been inked with weathered wood distress ink.
6) The title had been created using a label maker and ink with vintage photo distress ink. The word "Jolly" had been paste onto a felt tag. I've added some stitching and staples to the title for textures.
7) The address box had been stamped on a white card stock and cut out. Ink the edges using weathered wood and black soot distress ink.

I've just one more mail art to share tomorrow. Hope you all like all my mail arts so far.
