Hi everyone! Happy Monday and April 1st! It really is Monday and that’s not an April Fool’s joke, lol! Where do the weekends go?! This month’s challenge is live over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #9 – April Anything Christmas Goes. I’m in love with the Impossible Card fold and have created another one, this time in non-traditional Christmas colors with rounded corners and several layers on each panel.
I cut a wreath from Lovely Lipstick and Always Artichoke cardstock using one of my Simply Crafty SVGs cut files to use as the focal element. I embellished the bow with a large pink gemstone and placed a few tiny pink Dot Sparklers around the wreath. I hand-cut several flags and layered the flat side of each under a punched image layered on a scalloped circle. I add a couple medium pink gemstones in the lower right corner.
There is no stamping on this card, which is unusual for me, lol! I used a glue pen and glitter to embellish the sentiment and punched images from the paper which really gives them nice shimmer but doesn’t photograph very well. :(
And one final look with the flap pushed forward and the card ready to put into an envelope. I love that it folds flat!
