Vintage Christmas


I created a card last week using this same image and the French script and I loved it so much I just had to use the same elements again on this card.  I decided to give a fun fold a try for one of the challenges.  You can see how the top flap lifts up in the next picture and the last picture shows the sentiment on the inside.



Challenges:
Winter Wonderland--all tied up
Crafty Catz--a fancy fold or two

Supplies:
Stamps: Eureka Stamps "Poinsettia"; Verve "Ornamental Christmas"; Hero Arts "French Script
Papers: Basic Gray
Dies/punches: Spellbinders "Floral Doily Motifs" and tag; Fiskars apron border punch

Making a flap card instead of a usual A2 card is a fun touch! The poinsettia is really pretty. Thanks for sharing your card in this week's embellishment challenge at 52{C}CT!

Wow! This is a great fold! Love the flower and papers and die cuts. The front is pretty, but the inside is just as pretty (note to self: do a better job on the card insides - people really do look inside). I can see you have been very busy with Christmas cards - good for you!!!

It's me again. Did I ever tell you that I made a card with that quote you have on your blog about lapping everyone on the couch? I got a lot of comments on it on my blog and SCS. It still makes me smile when I read this - TFS!
