I am really taken with the corner fold card! I couldn't help but try it out on a couple of Christmas cards.
The first card I made has a stamped image as the focal point.
I have had this image for quite a while and never used it, so I was glad to see it down on cardstock!
I colored it with my ProMarkers and added some Wink of Stella (clear) to the flames and centers of the poinsettias. It doesn't show in this photo, but it adds a nice glimmer IRL.
I also dotted the background of my image with a pale aqua ProMarker to add a little texture and to tie in with the accent color on my red card.
The inside of my card was decorated with a couple of holly leaves and some berries, made with my red Viva Décor pen.
I'm entering this card into Merry Monday's challenge #165 - Candles and Flowers.
Once again, I used the corner fold technique on my next card.
I heat-embossed a few tiny snowflakes on my background and dry-embossed a snowflake onto my dove's wing. I also inked around my image and added a tiny gem for the eye.
Can you see the teeny weeny berries on the sprig of holly? Those were made (very carefully) with my Viva Décor pen.
I think I'll be making a few more cards with this special fold for Christmas. It's easy to adapt to different sized cards and is so easy to execute.

For the inside of this card, I used a left over sprig of holly and added a few more tiny berries.
I'm entering this card into Winter Wonderland's More Than One Fold challenge.
I hope you enjoyed my two "Christmas in July" cards. I actually have about 60 Christmas cards completed now. Only 25 or so to go!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
