Folding Fun

Hello.  Welcome.  I have followed the tutorial at Mark's Finest Paper to make a double gate fold card.  It was easy and fun.  Might have to make some more of these LOL.  

I used my scor-pal to score my MME double sided card and cut as in the tutorial.

I stamped the small santa from Mark's Finest Papers Dear Santa set.  I embossed with black powder and coloured with promarkers.  

I attached the santa to the card front and also added some Cheery Lynn die cuts.  I have used Snowflake 2 and Mini Rum Punch die cut from the same card as the background.  I like the embossed look this gives.  

Inside I added the large Santa and sentiments, also from the Dear Santa set.  Love the vertical Merry Christmas.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
