Christmas Cheer at Polkadoodles

Morning folks, Friday at last and the weekend is nearly here which means it's Polkadoodles Day lol. My card this morning is for our inspiration post at Polkadoodles for our theme is 'Get Organised for Christmas' so a great opportunity to get ahead with your Christmas cards.

I haven't used a Christmas cd for my DT project, I was having so much fun colouring the images from Work and Play 6 that I decided to make a fun Christmas card with the cute little barman image. Its so hard to make Christmas cards for young men, my son and his friends are a real headache to make cards for but they all looooooove beer so I thought a pint of Christmas cheer would make them smile lol.

It was a quick and easy card to make, the beer glass is one of the precoloured embellies on the Cd but they are such good quality you can print them out really big and they still look fab.  I layered the beer up on folded brown card and cut it out carefully not cutting the top to keep the fold. I added some pva glue and clear microbeads for some froth on top of the pint.

I coloured the image with Graph'It markers and layered it up on brown cardstock, added some Christmassy trim from my stash for tinsel and all that was left was to die cut some letters, colour them up with my Graph'Its and emboss them before popping them on the card.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Christmas: quick and easy
Aud Sentiments: any sentiment other than birthday
Crafty Girls: anything goes
Penny's Paper Crafty: Christmas or children
Top Tip Tuesday: anything goes

Well i'd better go and get ready for work, have a great day and thanks for popping by
