Festival of Tree Trio

Today's (and the final card for today) is a very special card that we made at our Christmas Avid Inkers meet up.  This card is beautiful, has a few neat cuts and folds, which all put together, makes a very clever little card.  I don't know if you call this a step card or a fancy fold card, or both!!

Thank you Annette for showing us this card!

Gorgeous cardstock colours of Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler.  With a touch of Pear Pizzazz.

This card uses hidden strips of acetate to hold the trees steady and upright.  Such a nifty idea, and you can barely see it!  The trick is to add the acetate in layers with the trees and Cherry Cobbler CS.   Took me a little while, but I did figure it out!!

The final pic, shows the fancy folds used in the card (you can also see I took the photo AFTER I wrote in it!!).  The folds look ok, the cuts were a little bit trickier.

I'm not sure where Annette found the inspiration for this card.  The closest one I could find on Pinterest!  If you want to make this card, let me know and I'll get the directions to you!

Well, now it's Christmas Eve.  No more chatter from me.  Christmas Eve is a special time.  Enjoy every moment.  Merry Christmas xx
