Christmas Card Throwdown ... October Technique


I’m not real big on “fancy folds” as my hands are full of arthritis but I can use my Martha Stewart score board to make a tri-fold card.
Using the 8-1/2” x 4-1/4” white card stock I scored on each end at 2-1/8”.
On the two front panels I cut patterned paper for the layers.
Using red card stock. Die cut three circles.
Using white card stock I cut three smaller circles all using Lifestyle Crafts nesting circle dies.
The embossing folder for the white circles comes from Sizzix Side Order “Christmas” set.
I applied two on the left side of the opening and one on the right  side.
To finish I applied the snowmen I created with the same set.

Arlene, I'm not a real fan of folding either but I can cope with it from time to time. LOL -- Your card impresses with its simple design ...and the absolutely cute little snowmen! Rosi x
