This fortnights challenge from That Craft Place is a recipe

1 image
2 papers
3 colours 
4 embellishments

I made a christmas card for my nephew who is only 16 months old..... I wanted to make it fun for him to look at and touch..... the cinnamon sticks even make it smell!!

I have used the super sweet Edwin skiing stamp from magnolia and coloured him using the 'No lines' technique. 
I love the Make It Crafty chipboards and this snowflake border is beautiful.  I covered this along with the paper edges and the cinnamon sticks in distress paint.


I would like to enter this into the following challenges


  1. Fab card for your newphew! Love the idea of using cinnamon sticks!
