Vintage Christmas, Slide Back Card

A touch of gold, I love this style card,it sits beautifully on the mantle piece ha, ha.
I shadow stamped the tree with caramel ink, simple really, ink once stamp 3 times.
I made up the postcard added it to the base of the card on foam pads, this tops the top from sliding flat as the bottom edge of the card sits behind it. I smudged the address for privacy purposes.
I used the cuttlebug snowflake die and a smaller snowflake punch for the embellishment.
