A Little Boy's Christmas Card

As promised in my last post, here is the Christmas card I made for my Grandson Bailey that matches the one I created for my Granddaughter's first Christmas. I again used the Jem's Designs CD "There's Snow Body Like a Snow Buddy"


I kept the layout very similar to Harlow's card but I added a twist to this one. The two blue papers are from the Jem's CD and the blue snowflake paper is from Kraftyhands "12 Days of Christmas" CD. I created the sentiment on the computer. I matted all the layers onto silver mirri and wrapped two ribbons around the card front.


I used the plain snowman tag from the CD and added the text in MCS using the same font as the sentiment. I fixed a brad to the top.


The twist I added for Bailey was a secret verse hidden by the snowman tag. I fixed that in place before attaching the tag to the front of the card with the brad. When all of that was done, I stuck the card front onto an 8"x 8" card base. I finished the card with a few snowflakes made from Spellbinder and Marianne dies.


The secret verse is a well known poem by Sheldon Allan Silverstein. I printed it onto a paper created from the Jem's CD. I thought the silly poem would appeal to a 6 year old boy and I was right. Bailey thought it was hilarious.
