TRI FOLD CHRISTMAS CARD WITH COTTAGECUTZ DIES

Hello everyone !!!

How are you all doing ?? Are you having fun with all the gorgeous Christmas inspiration?? It's indeed so exciting that the Great day is just 3 and 1/2 months away but the air is filled with spirit of joy. Card making is in full swing everywhere and new designs are making a show everyday. On this ocassion, CottageCutz has come up with amazing Christmas theme dies and many more are still on the way. The new one released just a few days ago are the cutest and most beautiful ones.

Today I'm sharing a Tri fold long Christmas card with you and the twist is that , it is made of envelopes. Yes!!! We can effectively use envelopes to create card bases. This saves a lot of time especially when we have to make a lot of cards.
I am sharing here the pictures as to how I have prepared my card base. The close ups of the various parts of the card will explain you , how I have built up my card.

Here is my card.


  The finished card measures 8.75inches x 4.5 inches.
 You need  three long envelopes 8.75 inches x 4.5 inches that open side ways on the elongated side.
Place the envelopes side by side like this with two envelopes on either side flap side up.



Join the envelopes together. Adhere the flap of the envelope on the left side with envelope in the middle and repeat with the other side.

Cut out pattern papers a little smaller than the envelope to cover the card front, inside and back. Here I have used pattern papers and  stamp from Heartfelt Creations .


Add ribbon and now adhere the pattern paper.





Decorate the card with CottageCutz dies. Add an embossed pattern paper and cover with CottageCutz Wide rectangle stitched frame. Cut die cuts from Holiday bell and layer upon a scrap of paper. Add glitter. Adhere to the card. Add die cut  from the Merry Christmas ribbon.


On the first panel add die cuts from CottageCutz Garden stamp and Winter Cabin Border.




Add die cut from CottageCutz leafy swirls and Best Wishes die cut.




 The finished inside panel




Dies used are listed below.










A fabulous challenge# 5 is going on at the blog and we would be really happy to see your entries.
