Bah Humbug Fancy Folds

Well, I'm not sure if this comes under the heading of fancy folds but I'll enter it into the Bah Humbug challenge this week and see what happens!!!

This is basically a slider card and I have taken red cardstock and made an open ended envelope with it, decorated the front with a Clarity Stamp sentiment mounted onto nesties.  I have watermarked the background using a Stampin Up set of snowflakes and punched gold mirri with a Martha Stewart snowflake punch.  I then made  up a card to fit inside the slider and used the SU snowflakes to watermark the card and gold embossed a snowflake onto nesties.  A red polka dot ribbon was tied around the card and gold mirri punched snowflakes with gems added.  To make the slider work you insert more ribbon into the centre of the envelope and slide in your card to the bottom.  Then tie the ribbon in a bow at the side and to open you just pull the ribbon and the card slides out.

Thanks for looking.


  1. Hello Karen

    Of course your card and envelope count, and oh my what a stunning creation, I love it. The watermark background is gorgeous. The rich red cardstock is gorgeous and so elegant, and teamed with white and gold make a perfect colour combination.

  5. Yes Karen, the year has flown past, but we're all looking forward to next year too and are already making plans =)
    Your clever slider card is definitely a contender in our fancy fold challenge this week. The watermark effect on your card is subtle but beautiful, but nothing subtle about the red and gold combo' - very luxurious and classy. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
