Keep Christmas In Your Heart

Christmas-Block-Card-wm

Hi everyone,

A couple of weeks ago while I was browsing what others had been pinning over on Pinterest I discovered a new style of card which I immediately had to play with.

This card is called a Block Card … I love how it looks like a pile of kids building blocks! If you want to find out how to create this style of card you can find a video by Papercrafter45 here.

For my card I have used a Penny Black stamp set called Christmas Everyday. I also added some snowflakes to my card.

Here is the back of my Block card, I have added some more snowflakes plus a sentiment.

As you can see by the photo above this card folds flat so it can be placed in a standard envelope to be mailed.

Expect to see more of this style of card from me … it is such fun to play with!
