Ho Ho Four-fold

Well this week sure has gotten away from me! I can't believe it is already Thursday! Today I have a fun alternative to a traditional Christmas card for you. I wanted to do something different for my parents this year, so I created this...

How fun is that? It's a Christmas card that also doubles as a home decor piece. So much fun! To create the base, I followed Lyssa Zwolanek's fabulous Four-fold card photo tutorial over at Song of My Heart Stampers. You can see her tutorial here.  I made the base using Real Red card stock and then added a strip of Basic Black card stock to look like Santa's belt. The letters, from the Layered Letters stamp set, are stamped in Basic Black ink, die-cut using the Layering Squares framelits, and then matted on silver glimmer paper squares. I was going for a look reminiscent of a Santa's belt buckle.

The Santa and reindeer images are stamped using the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set, punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder punch and then coloured using Stampin' Write markers. So quick and easy! I added a 3-3/4" square photo of Max in his Santa hat, which my parents will love!

Here is what this project looks like closed...it actually fits in a standard envelope!

I created a belly band to secure the card closed. I used Basic Black card stock and another Santa image from the Cookie Cutter Christmas set. The sentiment is from the Tin of Tags stamp set.

I am so happy with the way this turned out...and I know my parents will be too. Knowing my mom, she'll have this one displayed year-round!

Have a fabulous day!
