Special Card for my Parents

I wanted to do something a bit different for my Parent's Christmas card this year and scrapbooked the front. Each of the photos is on a pocket. I got the children to write their names on the tags tucked inside each pocket.

Aud Sentiments are looking for holiday sentiments on cards this week, and both Card Making Mama's and For Fun have been making lovely Christmas Projects too. One of the For Fun DT made a really sweet gift card holder. And finally, for the colour swatch it's Red, Green and White at Colour Create this week.

I've posted a tutorial on how to make this card on the Toucan Scraps Tutorials blog (here).


  1. Beautiful card! I'm sure they'll treasure it.


  2. This is a great idea!! I just thought this would be a great card to make for next year, measuring just less then a 5x7 so gramma can frame it. Thanks! Thanks for playing along on FOr Fun and for following the rules.
    Merry Christmas!!

  3. A great gift for your kids grandparents.Beautiful decorated with a lot of details.
