Inspire.Create.Challenge 006 - #245

Yay! I love an Inspire.Create.Challenge day, and that means today is a particularly great day.

Today is Fancy Fold Day, so here is the first shot of my Fancy Cold Card, or should that be cards? Because I have two for you, one Christmas and one not, but using a set that can be either.

Half Full, Seasons of Whimsy, Fancy fold card

The Real Red version is for a Birthday card for a very special man in my life, and I cut the individual panels of Designer Series Paper separately, but the Christmas Version I took the plunge and cut the DSP in one piece, which works because it is a lighter weight, but I think cutting individual panels is best if you are using our usual weight of paper.
