Some Merry Little Christmas Cards

Haven't posted for a while as I've been so busy! It's been a whirlwind of Craft classes, Craft demo's, Christmas plays, Commissioned cards, amongst other things! So I've decided to post a couple of cards that I made last Saturday at my demo:-

Time To Sparkle Tent Door Fold Card

I think this is a new fold. I've not seen it done like this before - and it was something I thought up whilst I was making another platform style card. I'm calling it a Tent Door Fold Card - as the front does look like a tent door (the old ridge style tent doors!!). For this card I used the Dovecraft Time To Sparkle range which I absolutely love!!
I've attached the template for it too.

Wonderland Tuck fold Christmas Card

Today I made a tuck fold card using the gorgeous Helz Cuppelditch Wonderland Christmas Range:-

Christmas Envelope Fold Card

I love this card fold! It's an envelope fold card - and it means that you don't need an envelope - as the card itself folds up into an envelope shape - so all you need to do is put a band around it and post!

Bonkers Bauble Christmas Card!!!

OK - I know this card is a bit bonkers! I made this at the end of a demo when my mind was starting to lose concentration! It was supposed to be a normal Christmas card, but it lacked something - so that's when I decided to add the Helz Cuppelditch pom pom ribbon!!!

I used Helz Cuppelditch Wonderland 6x6 papers for the base layer, and then matted First Edition Winter Wishes paper on top. Then I used the die cut circle (leftover from a previous card) and covered it in Dovecraft Christmas Washi tape. I punched a hole in the top and threaded some Dovecraft Christmas Ribbon through, and then I added the Helz Cuppelditch Wonderland Red Pom Pom ribbon around the outside. I finished it off with a Helz Cuppelditch Wonderland Sentiment Topper.

Christmas Ribbon Bauble Aperture Card

Simple card made by die cutting a circular aperture in a piece of card, and then matt and layering Christmas papers onto the front of your card blank. Then make pencil marks through the aperture to you know where the aperture will sit on your card blank. Stick ribbon down in stripes across that space, and then mount your aperture cut card onto the card front using foam tape.

Christmas Pudding Tent Fold Card

Extended Tent Fold Card made using the new Simply Creative Christmas Pudding Mini Die, Helz Cuppelditch Sentiment Toppers, and First Edition The Gift Of Christmas papers.
