Case Me A Christmas Card - Toys

Hi and welcome!  Today's card is part of an Instagram hop where a lot of the crafters who have joined Michelle Lupton in previous years for her Challenge and Case Me a Christmas Card series have come together for the 2023 Case Me a Christmas Card.  Michelle couldn't host the event this year so we all decided to do it for her (and special thanks to Ardyth Percy-Robb and Therese Calvird for all their work in co-ordinating).

For my card, I decided to case this card by Michelle which was from her 2019 Challenge Me a Christmas Card series,  Michelle's card is further down this post.  My card is also over on Instagram (karrenjnz).

I kept the grid pattern and background colours, but changed my images to gifts and the grid to a more regimented grid.  I stamped, coloured and die-cut the images from an old Honey Bee Stamps set and the lightly ink-blended various colours onto the square cut-outs from the grid cover plate.  I then arranged the squares and the gifts back into the grid and finished with a gold hot-foiled sentiment on black.
