Christmas Kickstart Challenge #75 - Festive Fancy Folds


I'm so happy to welcome back my dear crafting buddy Arlene from A Bit of This and That as our elf for this challenge!

We're challenging you to play...

Challenge #75 - Festive Fancy Folds 

Arlene says: "I've been thinking about fancy fold fun, and what a fancy fold might look like. What kinds of folds make you happy? Pop-up, Pocket, Easel, Waterfall, Accordion, Gate, Z-fold and the list goes on!"

And here's what Arlene has created for our challenge - isn't she clever! You can find out all the details about her lovely card by visiting her blog.

Perhaps you have a favourite fancy fold you'd like to share, or maybe you'd like to try a new folding style that you've never used before? Arlene and I can't wait to see what you create!

For my fancy fold make I amazed myself by making this box card, using die cuts that Arlene sent me for our January Challenge at CCC.

The die cuts accompanied this amazing card, which I drew on for my Christmas version.

I just love this card and spent ages studying it so I could make mine.

Here's Rudolph with his Random Raffle Prize for our challenge...

This month he's offering an adorable A6 pad of festive papers - the pages are all so pretty, and the perfect size for standard cards.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
