Fancy Flap Christmas Card

Yay! It's officially the Christmas Season! To celebrate I made a (semi-) fancy fold card.  It's a simple fold that opens in the front and is fastened by a small circle and a brad. Fancy fold cards are challenging because there are so many more panels to decorate and "tie" together.  Thanks to Hand Stamped Sentiments for another inspiring Technique challenge, they're good at getting me out of my comfort zone.  I see more non-traditional folds in my future, I can't believe the endless possibilities!

Among some of my new goodies I used that I've been dying to get at are a 3pc gift die and silver glitter brad from the Simon Says Stamp Stamp Festive Holiday card kit (love love love! what Kristina Werner designs AND puts together for the kits, she rocks!) and the Owl Occasions stamp set and silver glimmer paper from Stampin' Up! I also used Old Olive card stock, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler ink all by SU which you can get HERE at my favorite SU! demonstrator's online store.  

Check out this week's challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments

Thanks for looking!  Hope everyone had a wonderful day either braving or avoiding the Black Friday madness :)
