Totally Papercrafts #45 Christmas Punch !

Hello everyone... hope you are all well, and, if you have snow, I hope you are keeping wrapped up warm at home. It's time for the new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts. HUGE thanks to everyone who joined in last week.
This week the challenge is being hosted by the wonderful Heidi and the theme is

Christmas Punches

So dig out those punches and get crafting... we can't wait to see what you come up with.   Here's my project  -  a Christmas Countdown.   It was 36 days till Christmas when I made this, but now we are down to 

22 sleeps till Santa


This is a really easy card to make and you could use it for a countdown to anything... wedding day, special holiday, retirement day!! lol**
I die cut the squares and added numbers cut on my Slice machine. Then I punched holes in them, and the card and attached them with some blue cord.
The weight of the numbers makes the card want to splay out, so to stop this, I cut a strip of card, scored and folded at each end, and attached it to the insde of the card. If you also score across the centre of this strip you can fold the card flat for storage, or posting.



DP -Dovecraft, Christmas Fancy.   Martha Stewart, Lace Border Punch.    Numbers were cut on my Slice Machine.   Snowflakes are a XCut punch, covered with Diamond Dust.    Text made on my comp.
