Probably my most important Christmas project this year was the creation of some special cards for my kids' teachers and daycare staff. These men & women work so hard that I really wanted their cards to be extra special. With that in mind, I chose a set of images that I purchased from Mo's Digital Pencil Too and an idea that I scrap-lifted from one of Mo's faithful followers (whose name I unfortunately can't find so I can't give her credit).
For the daycare I made a more elaborate card since it was being shared among a group of people. Instead of merging the images, I printed them off separately and made an accordian card with one image per panel. I decided to add one line of the song "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" on each panel because the words really go well with the "Time Out" images.
In making this card I was absolutely thrilled to find a metal slider/buckle with the words "Time Out" engraved (you can see it on the first panel). How perfect! Otherwise the embellishments are made with scrap paper, a bit of cord and ribbon.
Well, that's it for today. Hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas break.
