Hosting Paper Cupcakes Challenge


Happy Monday to all and Happy Holiday Season as we start the countdown to Christmas!
I am so glad you stopped by this morning to visit, it is my pleasure to host this week's challenge for Paper Cupcakes . I decided to have you use any image that you would like and "Anything Goes"...I would like to see your creativity showcased in this week's projects. With that in mind I still did a card but decided to try a "double fold card" which I can't remember where I got the instructions for and I forgot to write it in my notes on this project. I will try and find the info if anyone wants to have it so that I can give credit where it is due. This card when folded has two pockets on the front...one of which I filled with a tag and the other I cut a long scalloped rectangle using Spellbinder dies which I stamped with snowflakes and a sentiment from a set by Gina K Designs, illustrated by Theresa Momber. The front image is by our own Nina May here at Paper Cupcakes and called appropriately "Christmas Bulbs". I knew that I had to have it as soon as I saw it in the store.
Here is a picture with these elements removed. My ribbon is all from Walmart.


I used Stampin' Up Riding Hood Red and Merry Moments dp. I used more of the dp and ivory card stock stamped with the snowflakes to decorate the inside.



I am really happy with the way this turned out and hope you like it too! Please go by and see the other design team member's projects for today and please play along with us this week. I am sorry I have been so quiet this last week or so, hope to get back in the swing this week. Take care and have a wonderful start to your week.
