#169 Ooh La La ' More than one fold'

Goodmorning. Well can you believe it we are speeding through November and Christmas will soon be upon us.....where do the months go. Over at Ooh La La Julie has challenged us to try a to use more than one fold when creating our inspirations for you. I went with a simple two fold card that fits easily into a normal letter size envelope. So no need to make your own envelopes to fit this one.


You simply need a piece of A4 card stock halved lengthways. Fold diagonally across centre. Then score and fold it to make your card. There is a pocket on the outside and inside for you to pop something inside if you wish.

I decided to make yet another Christmas card. I am getting a bit bored with the Christmas card making so making a new fold spurred me into action. I really need a push to get these Christmas cards made!!

The background paper and main image are both from Ooh La La Xmas Presence. There are some fab images for Christmas on this CD and I was spoilt for choice. I added the image to white card stock and placed it over the front pocket. The greeting 'Joy' is peel offs on a circle cut from the same DP and put on a circle of white card. I then added pearl stars from my stash and a silver star peel off in the top corner. I used the same DP inside and will add a greeting later.

So a very easy fold that got my Christmas mojo going again. I hope you'll find time to pop over to OLL and see what my teamies have created to inspire you. They have come up with some fab folds. I know you won't be disappointed. Link to challenge blog in side bar.

Don' t forget to check out the OLL shop for a peep at their inspiring CD's. Well worth a browse.

Have fun and I look forward to seeing some of you new folds.
