Wishing You a Merry Christmas

Hi there Everyone
Whew, its good to be back in blog land today. I have been busy with behind the scenes things, teaching classes and life in general. And we all know how life gets in the way from time to time.

Today I want to share a cute odd shaped Christmas card, and with Christmas getting closer, you will probably be seeing more Christmas cards from me. I know I have card classes slotted in October and November and the cards are Christmas themed.

Isn't this the most unusual shape for a card. I love it. I decided to use a Christmas/Winter theme on it, Hey, check out those designer papers, they are not holiday oriented. But I think everything works great together anyway.

This is a fun card and it certainly is a funky shape. When you open the card, the inside can house a gift card.This card shape can be perfect for anytime of the year,(gift card or not) but especially the upcoming holidays.

Here is a view of the card opened.

I love these odd looking card yet they are so so easy to make and it fits perfectly in an A2 envelope.You just have to love these kinds of cards
