It's a cracker!

Good morning, it's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Catz our lovely Nick is hosting and we're sponsored by thbe fabulous

Visit Our Shop
The optional twist for this week is Fancy folds (more than one fold)
The DT were given some brillliant images to play with, I used 

Crackers- such fun!
and made a gatefold card,
Image colored with copic markers , I added a few sequins and shiny stars, cut the image in half to fit on each side of the gate fold- on the inside there is a die cut 'merry Christmas' sentiment and more of the stars and sequins.
I made a band using  die cut fairy lights to keep it closed.

Not too long now until the big day is here- fingers crossed it will be an improvement on last year despite the ominous Omicrom.

Thanks for visiting, keep yourselves as safe as you can and have a good weekend
