Friends are the Sweetest Gift of All Tri-Shutter Card


I made this fun fold shutter Christmas card for a dear friend and she should have received it by now so I can share here. I started with a red pre-cut pre-scored tri-shutter or Funky Fold Accordion cardbase from The Paper Cut. Then I simply decorated with the Retro Merry Christmas die from Tim Holtz  Sizzix, several presents made with the Taylored Expressions All Wrapped Up Die, an old border punch from Martha Stewart, The Ton Holiday Bows stamp set and matching dies and Tim Holtz's Peppermint Layering Stencil. The perfect stamp sentiment is an older one from Great Impressions. Here are some more pictures: 




The card folds and fits into an A2 envelope for mailing. I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Scrapy Land and the Christmas/Winter Holidays challenge at Simon Says Stamp MondayMerry Christmas everyone!
