Advent Calendar

It’s time for another challenge over at CraftyCroppersGr where I am a member of the Design Team. The theme is “advent calendar” and here is the card I made to play along.

To make this card I used my digital cutter for the 25 circles, letters and numbers. I embellished some of the circles with stamps and used glitter and thread for the final touches. There is a list of the supplies used at the bottom of this post.

Actually this is the first time I make a card inspired by an advent calendar and it was quite challenging!!! If you want to join the fun just submit your project here. It can be a card, a scrapbook page or a real advent calendar. Get creative!

Now since we are talking about advent calendars I thought I should link you all to the advent calendar I made last year. There are step-by-step instructions with photos and everything on how I made it. The kids looooooved it! So this year I’ll use the same … I’ll just redecorate the boxes. Click here for more details.

Supplies for the card:

    Ελπίζω να βγει έστω και το μισό καλό από το δικό σου!
