Carson's Christmas Card

 Howdy Crafters - my 5 year old grandson, Carson spent the night last night. He ventured into the craft room and saw the Cardinal Christmas Card I created and wanted it. I explained to him it was for my mom because great-grandma loves cardinals. 
He asked if he could make one for himself and here is the result in these 2 photos - the front and inside of the card. Carson did all of the work except for the following; cutting the banners and mats, stamping the sentiment, using the Micron black pen to highlight digital lines. 
Carson, glued, added the pop up tape, colored the cardinal and fox, used the Wink of Stella pen, placed the gems, did the embossing and other die cutting using the Cuttlebug machine, etc. [You know, "Grandma, I can do this!"]
Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed week - grandma & Carson
