I was set a challenge by a friend to make a curvy card using a template from Louise Bridgden without using either rubber stamping or decoupage. (Now that 'is' a challenge!) I chose to make this my first Christmas card of the year. The background is a free download from Canon Creative Park :
There's a really great section of A4 papers here all for free. I used my cropodile to add some ribbons to the side and some flowers from Poppicrafts. The snowflake brads were from a set by Papermania. I added a couple of tags (Woodware punch) and a peeloff greeting. It was quite fiddly to make and next time I think I'll try doing it A4 sized instead.
