Bah! Humbug! Challenge 28

Life is still running at breakneck speed but maybe if I was a lot more organised and paced myself better, things would be easier.  Which meant that once again I found myself with too little time to create anything "Fancy-Schmancy" for Bah! Humbug! Shapes Challenge and had to settle for "Easy-Peasy".
Taking a red square card blank I cut a triangle shape from each of the four sides thereby making an "X" shape. 
Using this as a template, I traced around it onto some patterned paper from the fabulous g.c.d. studios paper stack Joyful Peace and then trimmed slightly inside the lines with deckle-edged scissors ... added a red velvet bow and a greeting and 'Bob's yer Uncle!' ... or maybe yer Aunty - you never can tell these days lol!
If more inspiration is needed before you have a go then check out the DT gallery over at Humbug Hall  where Ann, Abi and Kathy K. are sharing some great ideas for shaped cards.   If you have a good idea of your own then feel free to join in, we'd love to see it.
Righty-O ... gotta' dash to the hairdresser so will see you all later xxx

Great idea to make this shape for a Christmas (Xmas) card - nothing wrong with quick and easy when it looks good like this. Thinking cap on for me
