Back to Christmas Joy...Season of Joy that is!

This card was fun fun fun to do! it was a very simple fold but can create quite a presentation!
Start with a regular side fold card base and cut off a bit of the front panel. I didn't measure it...i just cut what i thought would fit the tree image on the right hand side...so adapt this to any stamp set you are using. I then folded back 1 inch of the card front. Here it is Old Olive, by the way...forgot to mention that! sorry :( Then take a piece of Dashing Patterned Paper (that you bought on sale this month.....) and cut it to fit the left hand side of the card front.
Sorry this post is vague with the directions but all of the measurements depend on which stamp set you will use on the back panel......
Now for some fun stuff!
Take your 1/8"Circle Handheld Punch and punch a hole past your the flap of the card front (on the Dashing Paper...). I then tied bows through those holes around that folded flap with Red Gingham Ribbon. How cute is that?????
For the card inside:
I cut a piece of Real Red card stock to 4x5 1/4. I stamped the sentiment "Merry Christmas" from the Season of Joy stamp set in Real Red in the bottom right hand corner. The tree was stamped in Old Olive onto Very Vanilla and simply cut it out. I also stamped the star with "hand stamped" under it from Season of Joy in More Mustard and cut out the star portion. I adhered both to the card inert with SNAIL adhesive. I then took that insert and adhered it to the inside of the card with SNAIL also.
That's it!
If you don't have the Season of Joy stamp set and would like to get it...this is the last few days to order it. November 30th is the last day to order from the Winter Mini Catalog.
