This card was inspired by Dawn Tidd whose card I found on Splitcoaststampers. Of course, I had to do my thing and change it up a little bit. It is a fun & easy card to make, especially with my Scan N Cut to cut out the cardinal so he can pop off the page!
Have you tried out the gate fold card that Dawn Olchefske posted on Splitcoaststampers' Tutorials? I am having such fun with this gate fold but am leaving off the piece that you cut from the top and place at the bottom. In this card, we used the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper (my absolutely favorite thing from the Holiday catalog) and the Peaceful Pines stamp set and dies.
One of the best things about this paper is that I have been able to cut out all of those cute little Santas using my Brother Scan N Cut. I also cut out all of the Christmas trees, gifts and reindeer from the papers as well. A couple hours of work and I can now cut out an entire sheet at once. By now, I have probably cut out 10-12 sheets of each!
Here is the inside of the card where I added a "window" from the Hearth & Home dies and paper from the Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper so you don't see the back of the window on the front. It is easy to do - just secure the front one to the card itself and then secure the two windows together where they meet.
Here is a card that we made at my recent Christmas card class. This card was inspired by a tag that Sharon Cheng made. I am having so much fun using the Santas from the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper. Having the Brother Scan N Cut makes cutting out a whole sheet of them at a time so easy!Six
