Santa Claus is coming to town

Hello, crafty friends! Happy Sunday – here’s wishing you a fabulous start to your week! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #125 – Anything Goes! Our fabulous sponsor this month is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps so be sure to come on over and play for the chance to win a prize! I created a super cute Christmas card using the Naughty or Nice stamp set, which sadly I don’t see on the website at this writing, however, I do see Naughty-isms which is similar and equally as fun!


You know I absolutely love fun folds, and about three years ago I came up with a combined Joy fold and Z fold, which I called a Joy-Z fold. I haven’t seen another one like this, so I think it’s safe to say this is my own design, lol! If you’re interested, my original card is HERE. This Christmas version is a vertical orientation, done in the traditional red and green color combo, with added bling and a Santa sticker.


Here’s a shot of the Joy fold portion open to reveal the sentiments. Love, love, love! Needless to say, I chuckled a few times while this was in the making! ;)


And here’s a side view so you can see the construction. It really is a cool fold! ;)


And one more look up close. I already have the recipient in mind and I know they are going to love it! ;)

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
