Merry Christmas!

Just a quick post tonight to share my 2010 Christmas card.
This year, I was inspired to make a bi-fold card and I have to admit that the Martha Stewart Scoring Board made the job so much easier.

Here's another view of the card:

To make the trees, I first stamped the image on the cardstock. I then stamped the top of the tree three more times on patterned paper. After cutting out each tree top, I scored each triangle and folded it in half. Then I glued the bottom of the right side of one triangle to the bottom of the left side of another. I repeated this and then glued the resulting 3-D triangle down to the card.

For the ribbon treatment, I used EK Success' Vertical Slot Punch to cut a small slit in the fold of the card before feeding the ribbon through.

Merry Christmas!

P.S. Watch my blog next week for a surprise guest poster!

So I LOVED the card when it arrived in the mail, but it also prompted 2 questions, neither of which your blog addressed:
1) How MANY did you make? &
2) How LONG did it take to make 'em ALL??

What a beautiful card and a lovely idea for the design! Goodness, your children have grown since the photo in your sidebar. They do that, don't they? Happy holidays, Linda!
