Colour Create and Clearly Inspired Challenges

The challenge this week at Colour Create is to use Red, Green and White with some snow in our cards, and at Clearly Inspired, Christmas is the theme. I have to admit- I am a traditionalist when it comes to colors for my holiday cards so these challenges are perfect for me. I am sharing the card my card club is receiving tonight at our holiday party and card exchange. I have re-discovered the fun of waterfall or flip cards after seeing how easy they are to make with the kits and stamps sold exclusively for flip cards by Repeat Impressions. I used the Snow Tree flip set and with each tug the tree and snow become more beautiful. I added stickles to the last one to make it sparkle. The front of the card and the strip holding the spine of the flip mechanism was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.

Greetings of this glorious season and stamping smiles, Karen

Oh Karen! You had me rolling on the floor with the second quote at the top of your blog. Priceless!

Your card is wonderful and you've mastered the waterfall technique. The embossing is gorgeous too and I love the images you used. Brilliant work.
