Pink Christmas Cute Card Thursday & Papertake Weekly Challenge Card

I do appear to be doubling up a lot with the challenges these days, I think that there are so many to have a go at it it makes it easier this way! This card covers Cute Card Thursday & Papertake Weekly challenges. The brief for CCT was to make a project using a Christmas animal and PWC was to follow this sketch:I have used pink and green as colours for my card and I may have lost all hope of being knighted as I'm not sure Her Majesty would agree with the pink post box!
I have used a Penny Black stamp (SHOCK HORROR!) called "Royal Mail". I have added glitter for the snow detail and cut it into a circle using my nesties.
This is matted onto lime green and attached to a stripy pink panel that has green and pink Bazzill stripes going across the top with added gem detail, the greeting is another stamp from Penny Black.

I thought I would also share with you a paper saving top tip that I picked up during a scrapbooking class many moons ago. As you can see I have a large panel of green at the base of the card, if you cut the centre of this out then your card is less bulky and you have scraps of co-ordinating cardstock to complete the rest of your card. I hope this explains it better:

I'm sure most of you have seen this before but I like to share just in case you find it useful.
