Christmas card

Hello bloggers,

It was real fun to watch my little one on stage this afternoon dressed up as a flower (not a bee as I mentioned earlier)! She was supposed to do a bit of swaying but she just stood there like a rock - never mind atleast she went on stage.

I am trying to make unisex cards as I always land up making very feminine cards. So this was my take on making a card for a man...

I got inspiration to buy this ribbon from one of Lynn's Christmas cards. Do visit her blog and look at the stylish cards she creates.

This is a simple card but as I said I always need numbers to sell...

The top green bit is an additional flap on top and then are another two layers which are not visible in the picture.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges: - winter, Christmas theme

A lovely card - I love the font for the sentiment and the way you have added an extra flap at the top of the card. Love the checked ribbon too.
Love, Andrea xx

Monica, I just love your array of Christmas cards. Your papers are divine and the reindeer on the silver card below is so gorgeous. I love this traditional colored one - the layers are fantastic! You may think it is simple, but I think they are truly scrumptious!! Good that your daughter stood on the stage - think how others might cry - she did good after all didn't she. ;-D
