folded Christmas...

It is so great to come across these challenges that allow me to get my Christmas cards done ahead of time!
The base card is red card stock  that I folded into a gate fold by scoring in from each edge 2-1/8”.
I taped a piece of white card stock to the inside of the card.
Cutting two pieces of white card stock for each “gate” I ran them through the Big Kick with We R Memory Keepers “quilted” embossing folder then applied them to the front.
The images are from Bugaboo Stamps “Christmas Blocks” digital stamps that I printed onto white card stock and colored with Chameleon pens.
These I trimmed out, applied the top and bottom images to the right side of the card and the middle image to the left side of the card.
Next I stamped the verses (unknown company) with Distress Archival black soot ink with my Tim Holtz stamping platform.

This is too cute and that embossed background makes your card look so soft and cushy! Love your coloured images too. Thanks for sharing it with us at Addicted to Stamps and More and I look forward to seeing more of your gorgeous creations. Hugs, Gwendolyn
