Folding, folding, folding

Yep it’s my first attempt at a tri-fold card. Many thanks to the Top Tip Tuesday team for the great tutorial and inspiring DT cards. I’m really happy with this card as I managed to use lots of freebies from my stash so it was inexpensive but doesn’t look it!

I’ve used a Lili of the Valley die cut with lots of added stickles and also glossy accents on the robins and poinsettas. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and I added stickles
TIP: It is easier to put stickles on your craft mat and catch the edges of the petals in it rather than applying the stickles direct (I find I use less this way too!)

The robbins, holly leaves, pressies and trees are all chipboards from a Forever Friends set free with a magazine and the papers were also magazine freebies.

I would like to enter the following challenges
Top Tip Tuesday- more than one fold
Wags ‘n’ whiskers- Christmas themed
Winter Wonderland- what a cutie
Phindy’s Place challenge- Christmas
The Crafty Pad- traditional Christmas colours red, green and gold
Everybody art challenge- Christmas card
Shopping our stash- Christmas or Winter
