Coming Home for Christmas

I really need to get on and make some Christmas cards or it's going to be the last minute rush again this year!  I have created this Dutch Fold card using the Craftwork Cards Peppermint Forest collection - I love these pretty colours.


There are three of each topper in the collection so I decided to create a pyramage image.  I used circle dies to cut the two smaller layers and fussy cut the car from the bottom layer as it would be covered up.  I layered everything up using foam pads and mounted it onto a scalloped circle which is dark grey to match the papers.


I cut the sentiment from the toppers cover page and added some die cut snowflakes and gems.


This is the inside panel of the card, I used one of the large sentiments from the collection.


Thank you for popping in today, please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.

Seeing the car with the tree on the roof reminds me of that Chevy Chase Christmas movie. I have a tradition of putting that movie on while wrapping up all my Christmas gifts, one of my favorite times before Christmas. It's a beautiful card.

What an intriguing fold pattern (and new to me!) Love the way you've used the pretty DP to enhance the panels and the little pink car with its green tree is just adorable. Love the dimension you've created with the circles and scallops as you did. Just totally delightful, Pauline. TFS
