A Couple of Fun Fold Christmas Cards......🎄

 Hello, everyone: As always, I hope you and your families are doing well, keeping each other healthy and safe.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


It's time for another RETRO RUBBER challenge and this one is a favorite to all of our participants.

The other day I watched THIS VIDEO TUTORIAL by Connie Stewart (Simply Simple Stamping) and I decided to give it a try for the RETRO RUBBER "Anything Goes" Challenge.  I added some bling in the form of glitter paper and embossing glitter, but the rest is exactly as Connie made it and, I really love the results.  This is a really Fun Fold that will be fabulous on all kinds of occasions.


This is how it looks when it's open.


*****************************************
Second Card.


*******************************************



And this is what I used for both cards.

My Favorite Things "Santa's Elves"
Flourishes "Christmas Classics" (2010)
Prismacolor pencils.

I hope you give this super Fun Fold Card a try, it's very easy following Connie's video and I think the recipient of this fun fold will be very happy to display it on the mantel or anywhere in their home.
Thank you for visiting me today and for your comments, they always make my day
Please stay healthy and safe.
