Hi everyone,

Today I have another Christmas card to share with you, it is scary how close Christmas is getting don't you think!

I recently purchased this fun Santa/Chimney stamp set at a Craft Show I attended and I am trying hard to make something with any Christmas stamps I buy before December gets here, otherwise I may not get to use them till next year.

For my card today I created a Tri Shutter card using the Tattered Lace Shutter die. Years ago when I used to make this style of card the hard way, I had made one where the first panel was a rectangle shape and I wanted to see if I could achieve this look using the die. As you can see I could :).

To achieve this look, all I did was cut an additional piece of card that was the height of the card and the width to where all the score lines lined up. I covered the front and back with card. The only other thing I had to do was score the top and bottom rectangle panel in half so it was a square like the one at the end and fold as per above. 

The sentiment also came in the stamp set, although in the stamp set it is soooooo  tiny I had trouble reading it without a magnifying glass, so I used my computer to make one the size where it could easily be read and attached to the centre panel.

The die cut sentiments were cut in green and gold card and then offset a little so the green could be seen behind the gold sentiment.

This is the front of the card when the card is closed ready to be placed in the envelope.
