Christmas in July @ Inky Chicks

Good Morning
I'm back with another christmascard.
This one for the new challenge over at

The theme for this fortnightly challenge is
Christmas in July
and the sponsor for this challenge is
I made a pocketcard for this challenge.
On this one I used two Magnoliaimages, coloured with DistressInk - refills and markers.
To decorate the pocket I used MagnoliaDooHickeys, Martha Stewart Ribbon, Seambindingribbon, a snowflakecharm, two little bells and some Glitterstickles on the trees (Magnolia DooHickeys).
DPs are from Inkido. All paperedges are inked with DistressInk WalnutStain.
I sprinkled on a little Frantage Chunky White EmbossingEnamel around the image.
The reindeerimage (Magnolia, that too) is cut out and attached with 3D foam pads.
Textstamp (on the back of the pocket) is from Kort & Godt.
The snowflakestamps used on the insidecard are from an old stampset from TPC Studio.
The insidecard has lots of room for writing, so this is a christmascard for the long christmaswishes...

Here come all sides of the pocketcard:
