The Glory of Christmas – Challenge 77 – Fold and Cut


For our Challenge 77, the design team challenges your to make a card using both folds and cuts. I decided to make 2 variations of a tri-fold card. This tri-fold card has a slight modification that was developed by Sandy Allnock. Sandy graciously provides a free tutorial complete with a YouTube video and PDF printable template on her blog. If you have never seen her blog, check it out…this woman is outstanding and my favorite craft blogger. What she can do with Copic markers is off the charts. Her talent is met with a wonderful sense of humour! For a good laugh watch her YouTube “Glitter” video.

To make my cards, I started by making two tri-fold card bases: one in white, the other green. Next I added the colour blocks of patterned paper. The fun little elves are from MFT - BB Santa’s Elves. I coloured each elf using Copic markers, fussy cut them out and set them aside. For card 1, I die cut a Snowflake by Papertry Ink. I then cut two MFT - Die-namics Stitched Circle Frames and pasted the snowflake inside. The final steps were to assemble the card. For Card 2 I only used a single snowflake.
