These Two Challenges worked perfectly together for my Christmas card this week.

I got inspiration for Just Add Ink picture just because it is Christmas and who doesn't LOVE Christmas?? I do love the colours that have been used in the inspiration picture but I couldn't go past using traditional Christmas colours!

The Theme for the Christmas Craft Creations was Characters and aren't these little Gnomes adorable??

This fold is called an Acetate Box Diorama Card and it was originally made by the lovely and clever Lou Kitzelman. If you want to get hold of instructions for the base of this card, here is the link. It is part of a tutorial bundle and you will not be disappointed with the other 3 tutorials!

  1. Fabulous card, Nicole. I just couldn't bring myself to go all Christmas in July just yet, it's been a strange old year so far & I'm looking forward to things settling down again before I even think of all the fun to come. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week. x

    PS: Can I get you to go back to JAI & re-link your challenge card to this challenge post? It's currently linking to your whole blog so I had to come looking for this particular entry. Thanks so much x
