Spring Fold card.

It's time once more for the girls
over at the Christmas Card Club
to show  the cards we have made for 
the 1st challenge of 2015.
The theme chosen by Carol
is Clean & Simple in  Red, Green and White.

I have made a Spring Fold Card


Stamp is by Clearly Besotted
'Signature Christmas Additions'
which I stamped and then fussy cut round
then mounted on 3D foam pads.
Border pattern  was part of an old card in my stash.
Sentiment a freebie stamp from a magazine.
SU cardstock used to make the card shape.
I am enjoying finding all these different card shapes.

Entering into the following challenges:
Crafty Hazelnuts #210 Anything goes.
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra # Anything goes.
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #158 Use up your snippets. (snippet of red card from stash)

Hi Valerie just had a quick peek at this over at Snippets, so now with my CCC hat on, I get to enjoy a closer look. You always do the most fabulous of folds, and I love the design you created on this pretty card. That is a lovely ornament too, and it's always such fun to see your recycled work. Simply Fab. Hope your Sunday is great & that your New Year was too. Big Hugs & TFS

I tried this style of card once, it is now probably decomposed in some rubbish dump in our area.
