Getting Organised

Hello.  Welcome.  The craft room tidy continues and I may soon be in a position to invite some friends in to craft with me.  My desks have been buried for some time now and it's lovely to have a bit of clear space.  I am really trying to tidy up between one project and the next.  So, in the interest of being organised I decided to have a go at the other tutorial at MFP, Window Tent Card.  

What a cutie!!  I used MME double sided paper.  I cut my aperture with Crafts Too Frames 9 dies.  I decided to return the cut scalloped square to the back of the card, but there was a bit of a pattern clash, so I inked all the edges in black to give a bit of distance.  I used MFP Holiday Tags set for my little santa and the sentiment is from MFP Nutcracker set.  I was going to mount the sentiment on the outside and then thought it would be fun to add it to the mountain fold inside the card.  Gives great dimension.  

Thanks for dropping by.  I'm off to water the tomatoes.  Hugz

    Now, as regards your crafty project have forced me to think about Christmas, which I generally do not do until after the Thanksgiving dishes are washed, dried and put away. But, I must admit, Gail, I do love your Santa!! I also think very creative your use of the black edging here. You go, Girl!

  11. Your tent fold card is fab. I like that you were able to use the cast off portion of the aperture for the inside of the card. Inking the edges was a great idea.
