Easy card for a difficult day

The pain in my head/face from shingles is getting to me big time, so I've tried a little crafting to see if it can distract me for a while. So this is an easy card made with a ready prepared step card - all supplies are from  Kanban 'all wrapped up for Christmas'. The panel with Santa has an acetate overlay that matches up with the underneath card.

This is for:

Paperminutes 224: stair step fold
Fussy & fancy 66: fancy folds
Christmas crafting 13: two or more folds
Annabelle: say it with snowflakes
Lollipop crafts 84: Christmas in July
Through the craftroom door: Christmas in July
Hooked on craft 22: Christmas in July


  1. Hi Hazel I am sorry to hear that you have Shingles it is not a nice thing to have and I know how painful it can be. I do love this beautiful Christmas card that Santa image is fabulous so is the card shape. I do hope that you will start to feel better soon.

  2. Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry to hear you're not so well. My sister had shingles, and it's such a nasty illness. I hope it all heals up really soon!

    These Kanban cards of yours are lovely, all the emphasis is on the image, and the card fold gives such good background interest. Good job, hunni!

    love Mags B xx
