Hello! fellow Crafters and it's Saturday night in my location. I have 2 projects to share here with you and a Christmas Card made by my son. 

Here is my non-traditional Christmas Card. I used the image from Sliekje and colored with glitter pens, for the flowers I used a 2.5" height cardstock and punched using MS Aster Edge Punch on both sides made a slit on 1 side and joined 2 petals and added Torquise glue glitters. The center of the flower was made from orange construction paper 8.5" strip and made additional slits with scissor and rounded using quilling tool.

Card Base - Shimmery blue card stock
Patterned Paper: Occasion-Alls cardstock Birthday Boy Design 3 from All My Memories
Blings: Punched cardstock using MS Aster Deep Edge Punch, Torquise Glitter Glue, Glitter Pens-orange,blue,silver,purple,yellow; stock blue and silver ribbons,4buttons.

My second project is Exploding box measuring 2.5" all around using shimmery blue card stock and yellow card stock. I have a lot of photos of my son when he was around 1 to 2 years old and I used them here {love this} I have a sticker collection of Little boy and used them here. I punched 2 photos using the 1.5 Fiscar scallop round punch and sticked them on acetate strip. Love it as it springs when you release the box lid. On the center are 4 photos and inner panel contains another photo to peep.

Card Base: 2.5" all around Shimmer Blue Cardstock
Layer: Yellow Cardstock
Others: Sticker Collection-Little Boy, acetate strips, Fiskar 1.5" scallop round punch, my photos

Now here is a Christmas Card made by my son. He was looking at what I was doing so I gave him an image from Sliekje, some colored pencils and that is his coloring. Then I placed on his table some quilled papers, glitters, buttons, a printed pattern paper and tag from my collection. I placed the patterned paper on the center and he decides where to places all of the items. He does the gluing and he doesn't like the feel of the glue so he asked me to stick it where he wants them. He even wrote his name on the tag {hahaha} due to small space he cannot write it well, should be Mat.

Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy making them.
