Fun Christmas Cards




I got this idea from Gina Guertin on a list we are on together. She said that she got it from someone else....but I like to give credit where credit is due.
She shared how to make Christmas trees out of folded paper. HOW FUN!!!!! Oh gosh, now I am making these like I was making the magnetic Advent calendars. Can't just make ONE.
This first one uses Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper and DCWV cardstock. I ran the card thru the Big Shot using the Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder (LOVE LOVE THESE) and took my sanding block and brought out the white core. Then I used a punch and put a hole in the very top of the top triangle...and inserted a gold star brad.



Next, I used TAC's Scarlet cardstock and our Merry Wishes background paper and created this card. The Scarlet paper doesn't have a white core....but I will use Stickles and add some sparkle to the card.

I have made quite a few, but this gives you an idea. It's a lot of folding but well worth the results.
Now I am going to spend the day making some Flip Flop books, which I will share when I am finished.
So many projects I want to try and so little time till Christmas!
Have a wonderful day!!!
