Totally Papercrafts Challenge

Morning all, it's Friday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Totally Papercrafts

This week it's the turn of our lovely Suzette to set the challenge and she has chosen the theme

Use Your Favourite Colours

We're sponsored this week by Kenny K.

So are these my favourite colours.... I dunno but they were my favourite at the time I made the card so I hope that counts ;)

I wanted to do a fairly simple Christmas card and I think this is one. It's not particularly flat for posting though so I might need to put the bow under a heavy book or something! 

I stamped Santa in his sleigh on the panel in Crumb Cake before stamping the Twas the Night Before Christmas sentiment in Early Espresso.

I used the snowflake embossing folder and the swiss dots embossing folder and covered the join with a bit of red gingham ribbon and added a bow! Voila. Very simple card.

This is awesome Susan. I love kraft as well. I don't think any of my cards go ordinary post these days even if they are only 6 x 6 they are too raised. The postage is a bummer!!!

Have a good weekend.
