      I think this may be my favorite Christmas card this year.  Image is from Beccy's Place and it's a pre-colored image which made this card very quick and easy.  I made it for my spot this fortnight as a GDT at The Outlawz Tuesday color challenge and Beccy's Place is our sponsor.  The theme is a very easy "Anything Goes" as long as it's inspired by their chosen photo.  Obviously, my inspiration was the little bear.  :-D

     I decided on a gate-fold card and scored each short end of the card base, then folded those inward on the score lines.  I used Memory Box dies to cut the tiny angels from gold, glitter paper, and a Die-Versions Nativity die for the heavenly star, which I cut off the Nativity.  The sentiment was cut with an Avery Elle die.  The little bear was carefully hand cut with scissors.  I used up a few scraps of gold paper making this card.


     Happy Crafting and don't overdo!  NanaConnie

Oh, Connie, I just love this sweet gate fold card! The little bear is adorable and love how you made him pop off the front with the background color. Thank you for playing in my Creative Creases Challenge and hope you can join in again soon.

Great card NanaConnie, I love the fold! You did a fabulous job fussy cutting the little bear, and I really like the way you've placed it over the edge of the gatefold. The angels are very sweet and I love the big star too... great for using up the scraps of gold card. Beautiful work!
