Christmas Square Fold Out Card

Well its Monday again but its the last Monday we have to get up early until the beginning of September!!!!!! My boys are so tired and so looking forward to a few lie ins next week!!!

My lovely Ross got chosen to play for the League Representative team yesterday at Cricket and whilst he didn't have such a good game on a personal level, he really enjoyed it and we were so proud of him! He really does live for his Cricket!

Anyway onto craft!!! Here is the Christmas version of the Square Fold Out card we made at Training on Saturday. The theme of the projects was WOW Christmas card with Sparkle and Shine! We were doing a lot of "shimmering" on Saturday with the Shimmer Mist Sprays!!

The colours I used here are from the Regals family which is probably my least used colour family! Riding Hood Red and Garden Green Designer Series Paper Stacks with Always Artichoke Seam Binding ribbon.

I made a flower for the bottom corner with the Scallop Circle punch and scrunched them up before adding an Antique Brad in the centre.

And the inside, using my ever useful Curly Cute stamp set!

Hope you can see the shimmer on these last 2 photos.

Thank you once again to my lovely downline Chris for the idea!!!!

Thank you to all the lovely ladies who attended on Saturday, I appreciate your support and enthusiasm!

Back tomorrow with another project from training!
