A new fold for me
This is a new fold for me, its a type of double easel card as the front bit is also upright.
I had not seen this done before. I got the tutorial on the Joanna Sheen Newsletter but here is a direct link Tutorial here This wonderful fold has been been designed by the wonderfully talented Sheila Weaver. I altered the sizes a little bit but like how easy it all goes together and yet folds flat for postage. A great idea Sheila, thanks for the inspiration.
I have used my Bigsby wreath digi image from Karens Doodles which I have coloured in with Promarkers. I have also used the grid technique on the green card underneath the image to give a little dimension. I have used my new beaded circle nestie die to cut the red card behind the image. I then added silver glitter peel offs and 7 glittered snowflakes cut using my Martha Stewart Snowflake punch on the card and finished off with silver Happy Christmas peel offs.
The challenge over at Karens Doodles challenge blog was to add 7 somethings to your card. I wasn't sure if they would count the 7 baubles on the wreath as its part of the image so I have added the 7 glitter card snowflakes to be on the safe side.
