The new Holiday Mini is fabulous with a lot of hidden gems in it. Some of the sentiments are wonderful because they not only are large, they also have great fonts! I have made this style of card many times before, but it is an oldie but goodie. It holds a gift card and takes only a few minutes to make! It is great for birthdays, weddings, practically any occasion. The tree punch is discontinued. If I had the holly punch in the current catalog, that would have been a great addition to this card! The Christmas paper is Be Merry from our regular catalog and the sentiment is from the Swirly Snowflake Bundle. Below the photos is a great tutorial for those of you that are not familiar with this fold!
Paper Engineering Folds
Cards do NOT have to fold in the middle! I love to make cards that are a surprise to open! The Whisper White Cardstock measures 5 1/4 by 4 inches and folded in half, forms the card inside for this card! Using the Layered Leaves Textured Embossing Folder on Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock and backing it with Dapper Denim, makes a bold statement for the Colorful Seasons images from one of my favorite new bundles in the new catalog! The new copper metal ribbon matches perfectly with Soft Suede Ink!
Hop onto the next blog below to see other cards using this color combination that really POPS!
This is the second of three cards that I created using both the Color Theory Memories and More Card Pack. Using the leaves from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets from the Colorful Seasons Bundle. It was easy to create but looks fabulous!
Love, love love the Colorful Season Bundle! I cannot believe the versatility of this set! Using basic grey, old olive and whisper white cardstock paired with the Wood Textures DSP and a masculine card just about designed itself!
Don't you just adore those leaves? Put them next to anything and they add a lot of punch. The Pretty Label Bundle makes creating labels a snap too! Stamp stamp, punch punch and you are done!
