But the person who this card is going to, will I know, really appreciate it!
I kept it all very flat as it needs to be mailed internationally, but it opens up and still becomes a decorative piece.
All the papers are from the Recollections 'Sugar Plum' paper pad which I picked up from my local Michaels.
On the left front of this gate fold card I stamped the heart for the sentiment with red ink and embossed is with red sparkle embossing powder. Since the little hedgehog was still debating the tree decor, I added sequin 'balls' to the tree from him.
This fun image of an imminent disaster made me smile while colouring and cutting it. So cute! I stamped the image onto a patterned paper background as well. That way I did not need to cut all the uneven lines and details around the edges. I also wrapped the tree with gold embroidery thread and added a bit of gold glitter to the star.
On the inside of the left flap I added the little mouse bringing a present to put under the tree.
I added a heart shaped paper clip to the front to keep the card nicely closed for mailing.
I could add a note to the inside of the card, or to the back panel.

I used images from the Penny Black 'Holly Jolly' Set
and the sentiment on the front is from the Penny Black 'Winter Wonderland' set
