XMAS INSPIRATION


{If you want to feel RICH, just count the things you have that money can't buy.}

I have created another easel card with my new found Flower Folding technique using only squares. The flower on this card had been created with 5x5cm scalloped square punch-outs using my Upikit punch. I saw this technique being demonstrated on YouTube . Using double sided Basic Grey pattern cardstock gives it an extra dimension. This whole card even the backdrop to the folded flower has been created with 5x5cm square punch-outs.

At least I've got one Xmas card for 2012 done and dusted.




Here's the digi for the sentiment.  Just right click on it and save it to your computer.




I would once again like to enter this creation into the following challenges:
