My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #70



This is my DT card for this week's challenge on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. This week's theme is chosen by the lovely DEBBY and she has chosen:-

MULTIFOLD

I decided to make a three-fold Christmas card but to keep it quite simple. I embossed the front and second layer through cuttlebug and added the stamped greeting to the corners of the inside. As I am trying to make "flat" Christmas cards this year I thought just a nesties on each layer with image and sentiment would work well. Very pleased with the outcome!

Image and sentiment: Elzybells clear Christmas sets
Medium: Promarkers
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, embossing folders
Others: Glitter card from stash

Hi Jane,
I love this card and the embossing looks fabulous. I agree with you about flat cards - my cards were all high postage last year, it fairly puts up the cost of Christmas.

This is great Jane, I never think about the dimensions and how I will manage to fit it in a envelope till it's to late, then have to make a box....

This is lovely Jane, really effective. I had to use a large stamp on all the Christmas cards I posted last year! And I work in a sub post office so I'm always getting my neck nipped about stamp prices!!
