2016-07-26; Christmas in July card challenge #2

2016/07/26

Today’s design was created for a card challenge to make a fun fold Christmas Card. I used two different Cricut cartridges, Trim a Tree and Elegant Edges for this design. The card base is 4.25″ x 5.5″

Here is the fun fold part of the challenge

And it closes nice and flat for mailing.

Here is more of an aerial view so you can see what the folds look like

The tree is from the Trim a Tree cartridge. My Cricut has a terrible time with this cartridge and it took 4 tries to get it cut right. Even the final version had to have some scissor help and the Cricut couldn’t get one of the cuts no matter how hard it tried. This 4th try is 3.75″ and so are the mats from the Elegant Edges cartridge.

And one more look at the card before you go on about your day….

The one rubber stamped item is the sentiment by Stampin’ Up from the set All Year Cheer II.
