How Many More Sleeps??

Good morning and happy Monday. I'm really excited to be part of a new design team called Season's Greetings. I'm in team Kangaroo (yes it's an Australian DT) and I will be sharing a Christmas card (or anything Christmassy) every second Tuesday of the month. But it's Monday I hear you say - not in Australia it isn't, it's Tuesday already. So you see I WILL be organised this Christmas lol. Our challenges will always be Anything Goes, and this month the optional twist is Love, so here is my very first card.

I bought some of these shaped cards from Which Craft in Doncaster 'cos I thought they looked really unusual. 

They are a tent fold and the front is connected to the back so they always stand up, but the fold flat(ish) for posting. I started by putting some snowy acetate over the aperture. 

You also get some frames with the card so I've just covered mine with some card from a DCWV stack. 

And stamped and watercoloured my happy Woodware snowman family. I've gone a little over the top with the glitter and fake snow, but it's Christmas (well it is in about 10 months)

Then it was just a matter of sticking it all together. This photo shows the way the card stands, with the image angled to the back. 

My little tag and sentiment is from Rubber Dance.

So please join in with our new challenge and get yourself organised for Christmas - you know you want to!
Have a fabulous week, and thanks very much for looking
Ho Ho Ho...

  15. Love this, especially the snowflakes on the acetate layer - what a clever touch, really calling attention to the depth of the shadow box. A treat of a make. You will definitely be ahead of the game (by more than just a day I should think) by Christmas.
