My first.  Odd really as I love differently folded cards, yet up until now I hadn’t given this one a go, despite it being much easier to do than it actually looks, which is usually the case isn’t it?  But a tutorial followed by a challenge to make your own over at ABC of Christmas gave me the little push I needed.  I went all pink and girly too, something else I don’t usually do either!  I really must have felt like a change!

This is how it looks on the outside, with the top of the image tucked just behind the sentiment panel, but when you open it up you’re met with this:

Very, very pink, lol!  And the sentiment isn’t crooked in real life either!  Love that glittery tree paper from MME, and those cute little mice wrapping up their presents ready for the big day, how sweet are they?  I also used a number of snowflake punches, a Sizzix swirl die, a nestie, some pearls and flowers and a boat load of stickles too!  Gotta have some glitter on a Christmas card haven’t you, especially a pink Christmas card!
