Week 2 Christmas in July challenge at Ideal Papercrafts

This week we are asked to make a pop-up style card for a child.
I used my KNK Maxx machine and a great set of SVG files from Sugar Gem Crafts to  make my card and I did have fun making this card. I usually am hesitant to make construction type cards but with this great file from Sugar Gem and my great cutting machine it was not as difficult as I thought it would be.

Christmas in July Card challenge at Ideal Papercrafts

This month I am taking part in a challenge over at Ideal Papercrafts.
Here is the first card for week 1.
We were asked to pick the flag colours from a country competing in the olympics to inspire us for our card and to also if possible add something which helps show which country.
I chose Ireland - orange, green and white. I added the irish gaelic word for Chritmas which is "Nollag" and also added three shamrocks.
