For my next cards, I used one of the Happy Trails dies to cut out a dove in shimmery cardstock. I tried to do two facing each other but the back of the die cut doesn't look nearly as good so I scrapped that idea.
Jenni Bowlin Fountain Pen - a nice inky black ink.
foam dots, my usual staple! :) This one is easily mailable which is important since I have A LOT of holiday cards to mail abroad. :)
