Christmas card template #1

I wanted to share with you a step by step instructions on one of my Christmas pop up cards.

Here it is...
Step 1. Take you scoring board and 8.5 by 11 inches paper ( you can use 12*12 inches paper as well)
Step 2. Cut your paper to 6 by 11 inches (6*12 inches for 12*12 sheet)
Step 3. Put metal ruler across your scoring board on 1 inch horizontal. Score vertical from the top to 1 inch ruler side on 4.5, 9 and 10 inches (score on 5 , 10, 11 inches)
Step 4. Put metal ruler across your scoring board on 5 inch horizontal. Score vertical from the bottom to 5 inch ruler side on 4.5, 9 and 10 inches (score on 5 , 10, 11 inches)
Step 5. Score on 5.5 inches (6 inches for 12*12 paper)from horizontal 1 inch to horizontal 5 inch
Step 6. Turn your cardstock vertically and score on 1 and 5 inch between 1 and 6.5 inches horizontal (1 and 7 inches for 12*12 paper)
Step 7. Using your X knife and cutting mat cut along those scored lines in Step 6.
Step 8. Start folding. First 1 inch score lines on both sides of the cardstock up; second 1 inch down;
third - the middle scoring up; and the last on both sides of the card up.
Step 9. Run your scoring tool on the folds again
Your card is done!
Here it is on the side...
Here it is standing straight

Enjoy your card!

Take a look on mine...

Winter Melody

I just finished Winter Angel 2 page layout using gorgeous deep green Creative Memories Winter addition papers. One of these kits went out as a Christmas lottery price to my good friend Adele on our Christmas crop. Looking forward to hear from her on that creation. Maybe we can post her finished work on my blog for you to see…
Winter Angel Kit
So, those were green papers from the winter set by CM. But I still had set of deep navy cardstock left. The Winter Angel layout inspired me on next gorgeous Winter Melody creation…
Winter Melody
The first page came out very nice with beautiful Christmas embellishments (Angel, Snowflake, stamped mini envelope with a tag), gorgeous Prima flowers and doily lace around the picture mats. For some reason it feels airy to me even with these deep dark colors…
Winter Melody, page 1
Second page even more presses to me… Cute little birds sitting on the top of layered picture mats, lace around it, very light Christmas feel gives stamped wrapping paper folded in nice deep creases, and finishing touch of gorgeous Prima flower mixed with lighter blue flower and some tulle, all these embellishments giving this page nice antique Christmas look…
Winter Melody, page 2
If you like those creations keep reading…
This is limited addition, because of the short supply of the papers. There are couple kits available right now on
Gorgeous 12 by 24 inches (two 12 by 12 inches pages) Christmas layout. Deep navy colors of Winter addition 12 by 12 inch paper from Creative Memories nicely coordinating with 4 picture mats and floral embellishments by Prima. Beautiful gold Angel, snowflake, decorative pocket with cute little tag, gorgeous Prima flowers, lacy embellishments making this layout one of a kind. Nice thing about picture mats is the size; it's 6.5 by 4.5 inches. So your 4 by 6 inch pictures will slide right on the page without any trimming.
Your kit includes:
2 - 12 by 12 inches CM Winter addition paper
4 - 6.5 by 4.5 inches printed picture mats
4 - 6 3/4 by 4 3/4 inches color mats with lace
1 - die cut tag

1- sticker with birds
2 - pop up dots

1 - gold snowflake
2 - Prima flowers
