Christmas Card Ideas.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi everyone, here today to show you a small gift I've been making for a friend.



I started with some craft card and two different sets of dies one by Sizzix and one by Once Upon A Stamp.




Next I prepared the pages by die cutting five pieces of card for each die.
And using the new Graphics 45 Christmas papers 'A Christmas Carol' I cut out various designs to fit onto them.
If you like Graphics 45 papers they are available at That Craft Place.


Then edged the craft card with distress inks before attaching the patterned papers.



And here you can see the finished concertina card I've made.
I have added a variety of embellishments too.

Front.


Back.






Closed and fastened.









That's it really, hope you enjoyed looking.

Take care and I will be popping over to see anyone who leaves me a comment.

Happy crafting,

I LOVE those old fashion X-mas images you used and the booklet is just awesome! Thanks for your visit to my blog earlier this week and happy Sunday, Marit woyww #19
