Hi Crafty Friends,
Thank you for visiting my blog today.
I have created a Christmas themed trifold card, using the Tri-Fold 5 x 7 Showstopper Card die set from Made to Surprise by Sam Calcott. There are a number of different ways to fold or die cut this style of card which can give you a different look. I decided to fold mine the opposite way so that the larger area on the left side of my card was raised to give me more room to decorate.
On the left side of my card I added the "Merry Christmas" tab using Studio Light's Celebration Sentiments die set. Without that tab piece on the side, the card when closed would measure 5 x 7 inches. However as I added that to this card it now measures approximately 5 3/4 x 7 inches.
To decorate the card I used some Chipboard Ephemera from Craft Consortium called Candy Christmas. I don't normally use this type of thing, but they looked adorable so I decided to give them a go and I am glad I did.
As I had a little of the patterned paper leftover, I decided to use that on the left side of the back of my card. I added a white panel to the right side, which covers the tab where the "Merry Christmas" is and gave me a place to add a sentiment and a place for a personal greeting.
