There are only a couple of days until December and the count down for Christmas is happening..
This weekend I’m hoping to get the tree up and decorated, if I can get my boys involved as I love taking photos of them decorating the tree. Maybe if I get the girlfriends helping out, they may do something…How is the shopping going, got it all done?….. I still have lots of shopping to do. Do you have any ideas for a 22yr, 21yr and 16yr old boys? The only one I have done is the 18 yr old….
I LOVE Christmas…I love giving gifts and I love receiving them as well.
But what I love best is celebrating the Birth of Jesus Christ with family and friends.
This week Global Design Project have a Theme Challenge – Christmas.
To see all the projects done by the design team follow the CLICK on the picture below.
At this time of year its not hard to do a Christmas card as we are all making heaps to send to all our friends…how are they coming along, you getting yours done?
I wanted to do something a bit different and this morning when I was having a bit of a clean up in my office…(this is something I have to do all the time as I have inherited my Dad’s hording gene). I found a picture of a card I found in a magazine years ago…and I mean years ago. I find these things tear them out and then forget about them.
Back to the card….
The stamp set I used is Stampin’ Up! Tag & Trimmings 144832 and the Designer Series Paper comes from the Christmas Around the World DSP Collection 144629.
I will add links below for all the other products used found in my Online Store.
This is a easy, simple card to make…its just a three fold card but one end is curved to add some interest. Have added the measurements below..The Nut Cracker was fussy cut and attached with some Mini Dimensionals.
To keep the card closed nicely I added a small magnet to the inside…if I had thought about this more the magnet would have been added before the Designer Series Paper (gray snow flakes and under the Celebrate the Season. The inside of the card I added a panel with just some stamped snow flakes and the sentiment from the front of the card.
Hope you like my card, if you have any questions please just contact me as I would love to hear from you.
