Grandkids Christmas Cards

Christmas is such a fun time for the kids! The grandkids get cards that are reflecting this wonderful season through a child's eyes...

Santa and Rudolph are peeking in the window at each house... The pictures on either side of the windows come from Shutterfly orders on the beginning page and I save them for projects just like these. Kodak used to give a thumbnail of every one that you ordered but now you can only get the first and last picture from the order. The colors are SU Always Artichoke and SU Real Red.

The window die is cut through the card base, then a piece of plastic is used before the window is attached. Googly-eye Rudolph, from the SU owl punch, is actually attached to the plastic so he stays on the window when the card is opened. I used the SU Stocking Punch and stamp set to create the stockings hanging with clothespins. Santa is on the inside with the sentiment and snowflakes from silver glitter paper. 

The garland is made with PTI's Rustic Wreath die cut open, one in DSP and one in Always Artichoke. Then I wove them together for extra strength!

Love the PTI sentiment  "It's the most wonderful time of the year"   and  SU Merry Christmas!
