The theme for this event is anything St Nick, so with that in mind I designed a card for Christmas using one of my favorite styles - the criss-cross card.  This style can be created in the horizontal or vertical - mine is vertical.  This forms a pocket for an insert which I really like so I can write my own message on the back of the insert.

*2 different Christmas papers - one patterned and one plain
*Image from Trina Clark's store - fussy cut and accented with gel pens
*Twine for the top and along the belly band
*Sentiment and stamped tree from my stamp stash
*Jaded Blossom tag die
*LoveBug Creations Christmas Grunge collection of Rumple Ribbon

6. Theressa (TSQ) -

If you're still reading, here for added mirth is my Merry Christmas Moose - she's soooooo cute and I really enjoyed fussy cutting her and adding an LBC Rumple Ribbon bow and a festive Cameo-cut flower!!

Now I'll send you on to Nadja to see what she made.............cyberJolly Old St Nick..........Mama LoveBug
