Santa travels the world ....

.... Hi again!  This is another scheduled post for the holiday season.  At the beginning of December I attended a Stampin' Up! class run by Karin - we had such fun making a couple of Christmas cards which I'm sharing with you here.

The first card is a CASE of Michelle Zindorf's beautiful vintage Santa card.  I had such fun making this card and while it looks complicated, it really isn't!

Inside the card I stamped a sentiment and layered it onto some red card and added a white flourish on the other side.  I like the flourish - not my idea - one of the other girls did it first and I decided it looked fab, so copied it!

My next card is also a CASE, this time of a fold design by Julie Davison - a tri-shutter fold.  I can see me using this fold again - so very pretty!

The picture above shows the card open - so many places to decorate, a really good way to use design paper - which is good as I have a lot of design papers!

Well that's all for now.  See you soon.
