Finished up another Kids Christmas Card. The corrugated card base is folded twice at the top, creating a bit of extra depth...just right for sliding a chocolate bar or an envelope of Hot Chocolate inside.
This will go to a little boy, maybe even the little boy next door. I made his sister's already...it was the blue mug of hot chocolate card I posted in August. This one has a decidedly masculine feel so should be just right for this little guy.
I know you all must be surprised to see ribbon on this card. I rarely use ribbon myself although I do love it on others cards. Mostly because I never remember to put it on until it is too late! I like to wrap the edges under something to anchor them. That takes planning...lol
So my new thing is to try and include a piece of of ribbon when I choose the bits and bobs to create my card. Hopefully this new process will help me to remember to use it! I do have a lot of ribbon and brought even more back from England. So expect to see ribbon in use here!
This card went together easily. It uses up more dollar store chipboard elements that I have had for a few years. I am trying to use up some of those items that perhaps a cardmaker would not love to see on her card...but a kid would love! The bigger the better...right? I even managed to use up another of the teensy kraft flowers...Bonus!
I also roughed up the edges of the DP on this card, to give it a bit of a rugged look. Kind of in keeping for a masculine card.
