I love making Christmas cards and I love making fun fold cards. This pretty card combines both of those things that I enjoy. Even better, it was really easy to make. Can you guess what the hardest part was? Picking out which designer series papers to use. After that difficult choice was made, the card came together in a matter of minutes
The Poinsettia Place Suite
I was enamored with this product suite the moment I saw it in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (which for simplicity sake, let’s just call it the holiday catalog). I love making cards with poinsettias; every year they’re featured in at least one or two of my card designs. I’m guessing Stampin’ Up loves them too, given how many variations on “poinsettia” I found when doing a phrase search. When I opened up the paper, I will admit I wondered how exactly I’d use it in making cards.
I have to tell you, though, once I got going, I found so many ways I could use this paper. Y’all, you would get sick of me if I did posts on all the things I designed up. So I decided to focus on ways I could incorporate several of the paper designs into one card. This fun fold card was a perfect start. I also love making Christmas cards for seniors in homes and this card was so quick and easy and makes thrifty use of a sheet of paper, it’s easy to make these en masse.
‘Visit back here often. I will have more fun fold Christmas cards since I find I have a hard time making just plain cards. At work I’m told I have a hard time not thinking outside the box. I guess you could say I have a hard time thinking inside the envelope when it comes to crafting!
