Child's Christmas Card

I love this image  and what an easy card to make:
  • Take the image and  colour it
  • Use a die cut to cut the image out
  • Frame it with a contrasting piece of card stock using the same or slightly large die cut
  • Make a sentiment
  • Emboss a piece of card stock for the  background, attach image and sentiment
  • Attach it to a border and a card base and you have a card!
 Now how easy was that!

I had company all week-end  and I am playing catch up  so I can enter all the challenges for the Bugaboo Blog challenges  which starts on Saturday and goes on all week. This card is for the Saturday Challenge which is to create a card for a child : See here for all the challenge details!
