Joyful Life Christmas Helpers

simple fancy fold christmas card using stampin up joyful life stamp set hedgehog
 Happy Sunday and welcome to my blog on this at the moment sunny morning.  I'm sharing a very simple fancy fold card today for my contribution to our Christmas Card Club Challenge.  Today's theme is Santa's helpers so I've used the fun set Joyful Life and stamped this super cute hedgehog in Tuxedo Black Memento ink before colouring it in with alcohol markers.  Having fussy cut it out I added it to a die cut circle on a die cut scalloped circle of Shaded Spruce card.  I added a ribbon offcut by stapling it onto the green circle and some dots with a chalk marker.  A simple sentiment on a stitched die cut rectangle and you have a quick and easy card.

The card base is a C6 and I have scored the card front at 5.25 and folded it back on itself before adding patterned paper to the inside and the front panel.

This weekend we are empty nesters with Charlie well and truly settled into Uni and Liv has gone to meet up with Uni friends.  It's quiet without them which is nice, but I'm not sure I'm ready for it full time just yet.  The four legged critters are keeping us busy though which fills the void.  

Keep safe lovely readers and keep stamping.

Cute image Zoe. I'm not overly concerned about being on the turkey list or not. Just John and I for Christmas - I bought some turkey breasts in August when we thought my nephew and his family would be coming to celebrate Christmas in August. Didn't come off sadly so said breasts went into freezer. If push comes to shove we'll be okay. Take care. Christine xx

Hi Zoe, a beautiful card and I love the little hedgi, she's so sweet.
Turkey is not what I would want to eat at anytime let alone Christmas, so not bothered, but I can see how some folks would feel disappointed if there was indeed a shortage. take care and keep safe, Kate x
