Trifold Card - Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges


Good morning fellow crafters, I am your hostess this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges and my turn to pick the challenge. My choice for this week’s challenge was a “trifold card”. There are six different versions of the trifold on Split Coast Stampers Website. You can do something traditional or try something different. Check them out here.

The challenge this week is sponsored by Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps and the winner of this week’s challenge will be awarded 5 digital stamps!

Random org will pick the winner of the Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps and the hostess will pick the winner, who will be awarded our Winners Badge for their blog.

I made my card with the Cami's Trifold design. It was the first time I had tried the design and liked the challenge it gave.  I used the cute teady bear image from Robyns Fetish and used the paper piecing technique for parts of the bear and my Copic Markers for some of the colouring. To complete the card I added some glitter to the hat, ribbon, a sentiment by Stampin Up and a couple of bells. 

Come join in the challenge. All you have to do is create your trifold card and link your card to Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges here.

I would also like to enter my card in the ABC Christmas Challenge - Keep it simple
