Simple Blue Christmas

Well this year I am so far behind on doing my Christmas cards.  Usually I decide over the summer what I want to do and then while relaxing at the lake I do all my cutting and gluing embellies together (I like to make alot of my own).  But this year.......well 2020 happened. Medical issues kept us away from the lake as well as people and stores and I got absolutely NOTHING done.  Fast forward to now.  First I had decided what I was going to do.  Originally I thought I was going to make teepee cards but after finally finding a size I liked, I realized I would have also had to make all the envelopes.  Nope no time for that so I went through my stash for inspiration.  Found an older Crafters Companion edge die and decided to play with that.  I then went on line to Michaels and ordered a pack of silver shimmer cardstock.  I had decided the main theme would be snowflakes so I searched Amazon for snowflake paper and found a Martha Stewart pad seen HERE .  Perfect.  So here's what I came up with a simple fancy fold for Christmas.

The lighting does not do it justice but it really is pretty in real sight.  Well now off to make a bunch more.  Good thing I don't send out many.  Every year my list seems to get smaller and smaller.

Til next time......................................
