Santa & The Gate Fold Card....

 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.

Santa Is In The House...

 Here is a card that I made for a "wow" swap.  From the front of the card, you are peeking into the house seeing Santa by the Christmas tree.
When you open the card, the perspective changes to the inside of the house where Santa is by the tree with the gifts under the tree and looking out the window at the snow covered trees.  Super cute!
