Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge 'card for a child'

Hello everyone,

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

The time has come for another Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge and this time Julie is hosting and asking us to make a card for a child.

I decided to make an interactive card because children love to have something to move, push or pull on a card don't they? I went with a zipper card

with the idea that the child can pull back the zipper strip to reveal the phrase underneath - in this case 'let it snow'.

I also added a double tag with a snowman stamped on the bottom one so that it will be revealed when the top tag is moved

and here is the finished card.

I used my favourite snowman stamp that is called Scribble Snowman - I just love his cheery, happy smile, and I cut him out and mounted him with foam tape. I coloured him simply and added some Polar White Flowersoft for some fur on his hat. The arrow points where to pull and I cut the first part of the zip with a craft knife to make it easier for the child to pull.

I'd like to enter this into

Christmas Cards All Year Round which is to use only blue and white.
