Quick Christmas Card using convenient Black Chalkboard cards

This is a quick card I made featuring the following budget-friendly supplies:

- Forever in Time ready-made Black Chalkboard Cards (sold with white envelopes);
- Jillibean Soup Ornament Shaker Clear Stamp Set - very budget-friendly and 9 pcs!;
- Avery Elle Happy Howl-idays Clear Stamp Set ;
- Avery Elle Happy Howl-days Die;
- DoCraft  Mistletoe Die.

The ornament stamp is part of Jillibean Soup's Shape Shaker Program - a series of stamps, dies and inserts to create shaker cards naturally!  But I simply wanted a 'window-style' card to show off my dog stamp.

I decided to try out the new chalkboard folded cards I had bought on a whim and my mind was set on trying to create a modern style card that a young professional would like. My daughter could then use it to give to anyone of her co-workers!  I think I did well :)

I am not that great at colouring with alcohol markers like the copic markers yet,
 but I'll get the hang of it eventually. But he's so darn cute :)

Here is where I used my 1 1/2 in. circle punch to create 
the window to feature my holiday pooch!  

I cut the mistletoe branch so I could re-arrange it a little.

These have a slick surface, so I used sticky tape to attach everything. 
To stamp on it (not shown), I used a silver pigment ink and was very careful not to smudge. 
There are 6 cards and 6 envelopes to each pack.  

More cards to share coming up!
