merry everything happy always

Hi everyone! Well here we are headed into November! It won’t be long now until the little chubby man in the sleigh comes to visit, lol! Our November challenge is live this morning over at the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration for MLCCB #4 – November Anything Christmas Goes! This is another version of the double flap fun fold. I made one several months back and liked it so well that I thought I’d make another! The previous one had a ribbon closure so I modified this one and gave it a velcro closure. Love how it turned out!


I selected a couple of coordinating Christmas papers along with red, ivory and gold foil cardstock. I stamped the front sentiment in red, the first inside sentiment in green and the second inside sentiment in red. Here are shots showing the outer and inner flaps open.


And here it’s completely open to reveal the inside sentiment.


One final shot of it all closed up and ready for mailing. Love!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

One thought on “merry everything happy always”

  1. This is such a joyful and elegant card, Leslie! Beautiful papers and gorgeous layering combined with the lovely embossed verses make this a treasure. I adore the closure gem: it’s colour and sparkle is fabulous!
    Thank you for sharing your project with us at the Crafts Galore Encore ‘Anything Goes’ November Challenge. Good Luck and hope to see you again next month!
