The current challenge over at Winter Wonderland is 'Travel'. It doesn't have to be a Christmas card either, but when I was taking down the last Christmas cards yesterday it struck me that Santa Claus is a very well known traveller - so I cannibalised one of the cards and made this:
- 6" x 6" square white card stock with the front totally covered in Kan Ban's 'Merry Christmas' green backing card and I worked it out so that at least 'Merry Christmas' and a single 'Ho' shows at the top above the image :)
- image from a Christmas card
- image backed with gold linen card. A little tip when layering onto card - I cut the backing mat slightly larger than needed and then stick the top layer on making sure that (say) the top and the left hand edge are the same distance from the edge of the backing card. Then just trim the excess from the bottom and the right hand edge to match. It might seem really obvious, but it took me ages to realise it was better than attempting to totally line up four sides straight off

Hope you're enjoying the weekend, particularly those of you who had to trot back to work last week - relax and enjoy!
I've gotta find time to rustle up a Snippets card and will also be offering a Playground treat tomorrow :)
