Toy Solider

I had this chap waiting patiently to be used and when I saw the challenge on High Hopes this week is for Red and Green I knew it was time. He's a Dustin Pike stamp from High Hopes.
Now I decided to used theses Christmas papers I think they're Kars but the of course the cover has disappeared. But they have a fab page that looks like an advent but by the time I layered some contrasting papers it was hidden. I thought it was shame how you couldn't see it when I thought how about layering the number on the top roughly where they should be. In a quirky way I like it, just wished I used the cuttlebug embossing folders with numbers on the mat behind him. Didn't think it needed anymore embellishments so he will be ideal for my DS for Christmas.
Don't forget to check out the team, you will always fabulous inspiration.

Oh boy...this is SO SO CUTE!!! I'd love to know how you make your cards look so dimensional. It looks like you pop them up...but they also look "curled". I'm trying to wrap my head around how you do that!
