Ho Ho Ho

Hi friends, and Happy Thursday to you! Today is our oldest granddaughter’s 17th birthday and I’m sitting here shaking my head at how fast these years have flown by! Every year I feel a little bit older, lol! This morning I’m sharing another website sample for Prickley Pear Stamps. You know how I love fun folds and I’ve created another split panel fold using the most adorable Santa Koala and Mrs Claus clear stamp set for the focal image which I absolutely love! I shared one of these folds for another design team a couple weeks ago that I created in portrait orientation, so I thought this one in landscape mode would be a fun alternative!

I used a fun tree print from one of my favorite 6×6 Christmas paper pads for the narrow panels. I stamped the images on white cardstock in black ink and colored them with Nuvo alcohol markers. I trimmed the panel, layered it on red cardstock, and added a candy cane brad along with several small light green gemstones. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom narrow panel, and the final touch was Glossy Accents on Mrs Claus’s glasses!

I embellished the inside panel with strips of tree print and red cardstock used on the front, stamped the sentiment in black ink, and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! I think this fold is one of my new favorites!

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
