Creative Fold with Santa's Sleigh

I had such fun making this card. I used directions from Kristine Reynolds, and they can be found here: 
I would remind you that Kristine indicates that measurements are approximate, and I would strongly suggest dry fitting before glueing anything down. I used the same measurements for the big squares as Kristine, however, I had to adjust the smaller panels a bit. I used these measurements:

Mat cardstock  2 panels 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" and 7 Panels 1 7/8" x 1 7/8"

Pretty Pines

Gold and white is so classic, don't you think? I got out my Pretty Pines Thinlets and made two of them in this color combo. This is my favorite stamp/thinlet combo for this year. Off to make some more!

Abstract Snowman

Isn't he cute? I saw this a while back on the Internet somewhere. I tried to recreate from memory and using what I had in my stash. The snowflake embellishment is left over from last year, and the builder as well as the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack are retired. However, any little flower and leaf or holley would be cute!I added a touch of sparkle to his eyes with the Wink of Stella Brush.

Forest Christmas

I have seen a similar technique done with gesso and Distress paints. However, I used Stampin' Up! inks to achieve this look and I'm very pleased with it. I have a free tutorial HERE. If you need any supplies, I'd appreciate your orders. You can simply order from me by clicking on the link in the right side bar.
