Xmas Folds

I have finally started making stuff for Christmas.  This is my first project.  I think I have been in denial for the last month or so, but I know that if I don't start now, I wont get everything finished in time.  I apologise for the number of  pictures in this post, but I think you will understand.

The original idea for my card came from a very talented lady.  Her blog is called Mariannes Papirverden .  I am very inspired by all of her makes.  I actually followed a tutorial on YouTube to make this.

When closed, my card measures 3"x6"

The inner part of the card was made from one sheet of A4 which I cut down to size.  I will lay flat when fully opened.  I have used a version of this fold before as shown here.

The back needed something so I have stamped a lovely little bear which shows up on a lot of my Christmas cards.

This is the front of the matching bag I made for the card showing the same little bear.  The bag is made from one A4 sheet of the same paper I used inside the card.

And the back.

I will  be entering my project for the following challenges:
Christmas Stamping All Year Long - Fancy Shmancy Folds
Crafty Creations - Dies and Punches
Creative Card Crew - Anything goes
Die Cut Dreams - Make a gift bag or box
