Early Holiday Wishes 4 Kids Card Recipe

My favorite season of the year is winter.  I know people think I am crazy, but it is my favorite season regardless.  One of the reasons it is my favorite is because I love cold weather and snow and sweaters and turtlenecks.

In honor of that love, I created a card with snow in the window.  The window die is one I have had for a while now and is the perfect size – not too big and not too small.  Using Cricut Design Space, I brought in the Christmas Animals images from Dollar Graphics Depot.  Using the print and cut feature in Cricut Design space and my Cricut Explore Air 2, I printed the images and then cut them out.  Acetate, snow confetti and fun foam were used to pop up the window and create the shaker card.  The fireplace scene is inside the window and the animals are having fun outside the window.  The bear is on the inside of the card.

Take some time and enter the challenge.  And you can even send your card in to make a child smile.

Thank you for stopping by the blog.  Tune in next time for another paper crafting project.  Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.
