4 weeks of “Christmas Craft”: Week 2

So as the holiday season approaches, I find less time to make things but have so many thing that I want to make. So I try (not always succeed) to keep it simple.

This week I present a quick simple card that could double as a Christmas Invitation or a fun way to sen your Christmas Holiday photos.

So this is basically like a gate fold but they two pieces do not meet, one side sits slightly over the other.

The card is made from some B&T from the White Pines Paper Packet. I cut three strips of 10cm (which is about 4inch) wide from the paper & keep the length.
Along the 12inch length it was scored at 11.5cm (about 4.5inches) & 25.5cm (about 10inches).

Added a 2.5cm (about 1inch) strip of Cranberry Cardstock to the front, so that it looks like ribbon & blinged it up with some Silver Foil Tape (I love this stuff). A bow was cut out using the Cricut Artiste Collection which was decorated with a cute Base & Bling Snowflake Charm & a little Silver Sequin.

And done – you now made the card!

So how do you turn the card into an invitation or a photo holder?

Simple cut some card stock slightly smaller & score about 2.5cm, attach the flap of your cardtock to the top of the card fold like so

Double check that when you open & close the card, that your inside piece is not too long

Now when the recipient opens the top flap of the card the invitation or Photo holder will reveal part of the message.

For the photo holder just attach your favourite Santa photo or Christmas Family photo to the card.

Enjoy & share what you created using this idea.
