Have a Mare-y Christmas Slimline Card

I'm on a roll with slimline cards! This is my third one in a month (see my recent masculine Vintage Pocket Watch birthday and Penguin-ing to Look a Lot Like Christmas cards). Before these two, you'd have to go all the way back to 2013 and this La Jeunesse n'a pas d'Age card. I make so few like this the only envelope I had to fit was a totally unsuitable blue, so I took it apart and used it as a template to make this matching envelope.

As on the Penguin-ing card just mentioned, I've used another new Hetty Clare image (I stocked up in her recent sale), the Pony Stocking Christmas digi. This image works so well in this slim format. Paper is from another new Craft Sensations paper pad –  Christmas Party.

Channel Slanted 2 font was used for the pun-ny sentiment. CANDi dots, wooden stars and some glittering gold ribbon from my stash give it a festive feel.
