Z fold Christmas card .

Hi there , welcome to my room . Was a pleasant morning but weather has turned cold now and this afternoon is freezing .  Only one thing to do ..make a card !
I need to create some Christmas card kits for my Saturday class and this will be the first .
I began with a normal C6 card , side fold . Real Red .
I folded the front back on itself .
I layered some  striped DSP onto Old Olive card  for the front panel and more of the same but larger for the
inside back of card , leaving small border.
I stamped Santa  on Whisper White in Real Red ink and layered onto green and  the red card leaving small border. I then stamped several of the stockings in red and green and 3D them onto side of card.
Santa and stocking  from set , A Holly Jolly Christmas. SU

this is what the inside looks like . Hope the class like it .
Well short and sweet but I  hope interesting post . Thank you for calling in .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-anne .

Hi Shirley-Anne,

What a good way to spend one's time when the weather is playing up! How lucky we crafters are!!!

I love your unusual card... the way you have folded it and it Santa looks so cute and so do the stockings on the right. Your friends will love to make it.

Thanks for the kind words,

What an awesome fold the little Santa and the stockings.I'm starting to make my cards as a side fold now, they seem to sit better.
Have a great weekend.
