Santa Claus, a GIVEAWAY and The Project Bin!

Hi friends!

I'm back with another card for The Project Bin!

Although I'm "girl tuesday" up on the blog, 

Denise is now posting once a week so check back often :)

AND ........

today's post has a giveaway!

I received 2 Mid Century Christmas stamp and die sets 

and Denise is so so SO very sweet ~

she said "Keep it and have a giveaway!"

Isn't she AMAZING! (。♥‿♥。)

*Scroll down past the card for details!*

I've used the Mid Century Christmas stamp and die set,

stamped in Catherine Pooler inks

and the striped paper is also from the new Catherine Pooler holiday dsp mix.

I stamped out the tree, presents and star and die cut those 

with the coordinating dies this one is super fun and a new-to-me card fold ~ 

a step card with a diagonal twist.

I've made step cards before but this is the first try with a diagonal twist.

I did one as a practice and it was a little bent up from all the scoring, LOL,

but the second one was. the. one!

It opens up to an A2 size and there's a note area in the inside to write ~  and 

once folded, it fits perfectly into an A2 envelope!

This is where I started and then ended up with a pdf file that was step by step 

to add the diagonal.

Now for the giveaway!

For ONE lucky winner,

I'll send you the stamp and die set used on this card (the extra!)

  4. A brilliant fun fold Kelly and a lovely card. Big hugs and blessings, Carol S.xxxx

  5. Wow! Such stunning design with this folding and the lovely stamps!! Love that tree!!
    Here in Italy cards aren't usual for any occasion, so traditional celebrations as Christmas are the best to make cards!

  6. Really cool card, Kelly! I like the cheerful colors and unique design. I love making my own cards all year long. Christmas cards seem to put me in the best mood. My FAVORITE thing about making my own is that I can personalize the cards for the recipients. Thanks for sharing your creation.

  7. Wow, you really nailed that fold Kelly, and I love the resulting card.
    My favourite part of making cards for Christmas - ensuring that they depict the true meaning of Christmas - especially if I and include a nativity.
    Stay safe
