Merry Christmas

Colleen here with one of my Christmas card.  Your challenge today is to create a tri-fold card and shake the dust off those punches and see what you can create with them.  It does not need to be a Christmas card.

There is a prize which is a small baggie of goodies from the Design Team plus FREE SHIPPING for one order at (Sorry. Free S/h is to US mailing address only; $5 discount to international addresses.). So you will want to play along.

Of course there are a few items we would like you to do for us besides show us your beautiful layout;

1. Become a Follower of this Blog; 
2. This must be a new layout;
3. Provide a link to your blog in the comments so we can see your beautiful layout; and
4. Have your layout posted by the end of the month.

Here is my Christmas card.

This card is so fast and easy to create, jut make your tri-fold card and the size is up to you.  I try to make all my cards the same size.

The next step is to cut the rectangles and ink the edges.  I used my Cameo to cut all the rectangles.

My finished card measures 5" across and 6 1/2 long.  So for my rectangles the top two measure 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" and  1 3/4" x 3 1/4 and the bottom two rectangle are 1 1/2" x  2 1/8" and 2" x 1 1/4".  

If you ink the edges it gives it the rectangles some depth.  

The door handles are just brads spread out and man the Best Glue Ever really hold those brads down.

The wreaths were created just punching out a bunch of branches and gluing them together.  In the center of each wreath I added some red stickles.

I just added ribbon to the back to make it look like it is hanging on the door.

I hope you give this card a try and can't wait to see your creation.
