Hazel's Guest Spot 4th Card.

This is the 4th card I made as Guest Designer for November at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Extra.
There are seven soldiers that bugaboo have in their range and I love them all so went back and purchased the other six to use on this Joy fold card.



Backing paper is a freebie from Crafts Beautiful Magazine  (2012)
Snippet of red glitter paper and bakers twine from stash.
 
 
First fold opened to show next four soldiers.
Digi's have ben coloured using Promarkers and gold gel pen
 
Last fold opened to show seventh solider done as a tag.
This is for the recipients name and message on reverse.
 
 Card is held closed with a faux button in glitter card raised on 3D pads.

What a great way to present all those fab soldiers...I 'met' them during our stay in Florida...in the Netherlands they are rather unknown.
