Hi everyone! Happy December 1st! A new challenge is live over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog this morning and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #5 – December Anything Christmas Goes! I created a corner fold card to add to my pile of Christmas cards. I’ve made a couple of these in the past and really love how they turn out!
The cardstock, paper, stamps and inks are all from Stampin’ Up. I used the traditional green and red Christmas colors with a pop of gold. I watercolored the holly leaves and added some shimmer, and used red gemstones for the berries.
I added a scalloped border punched from DSP to the bottom of the front and the bottom of the inside panel for a little interest. Love how this turned out!
