I'm back to making some more Joy Fold Cards and using up some pf the stash of freebie design paper I have in my Christmas Box. These papers are all from Making Cards magazine 'Christmas Papercrafts Special 2017 and have a contemporary look to them.
This one is made using brown craft cardstock and a tiny rudolph paper along with some cream card stock. The sentiment came on a sheet to use with the papers . Now I couldn't find any more thin red ribbon than what is used for the tag so I made an acetate belly band as the closure instead and then used acetate on the tag front too. Thought it worked quite well and the acetate doesn't hide the sentiment which is what the card is all about after all. Inside shown below.
This card uses two contrasting papers of the same design on cream and copper shimmer cardstock. I had plenty of thin white ribbon to hand so used for the closure . Again the sentiment came from the same sheet as above. Inside of card shown below with the contrasting papers.
This design paper is really contemporary but I think it works perfectly with the wreath sentiment. I love the little rows of christmas trees. I have used craft card and cream card stock for the bases. Inside of card below.
Couldn't not resort to using an old christmas card front from the christmas box now could I + the acetate was already out so why not use them both!! I trimmed the card front down slightly and cut a piece of acetate of the same size and adhered together by making holes and adding red bads from my stash. Mounted 3D pads on the back and adhered to plain cream stock and then brown cardstock for the base card. The little bauble embellishments were left over from a previous project making christmas box bags so I tied together with a piece of thin string which just happened to be on my desk and matched the card colours.
