Happy Holidays

I was sorting through some of my retired Christmas papers and decided to create a card using the BYSHC sketch challenge #42 and incorporated Caffeinated Christmas Challenge #26 "Hearts" along with Jingle Belles "Getting Text-y with it".   

The sketch reminded me of a Gate Fold, using one of the tutorials on our Double Trouble Challenge #160 "Hoodie-Hoo Celebration" and celebrating Creative Creases #76 "Anything Goes Fun Folds" for their 3rd Anniversary. 

The side panels of my card were cut from CTMH "Christmas Story", retired paper pack, which I found in my stash.  Panels were bordered with a layer of Candy Apple cardstock and adhered to card base.  To satisfy the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge I die cut a cup with hearts using a small text-y patterned paper also found in my stash to satisfy Jingle Belles Challenge. The cup was adhered with 3D foam tape for dimension on black cardstock, bordered with the red cardstock and adhered on the left panel.  

I put my scanner up close to the Text-y design paper and there were many recipes with all ingredients and directions... prime rib roast, holiday cranberry sauce, golden rum cake, Soft Ginger Cookie, and Egg Nog as shown in my scanner photo.  If you want a slice of my patterned paper with a particular recipe let me know and I will send it to you.  Just message me under comments.  

Please check out all of these challenges for inspiration and start your stash of 2024 Christmas cards.
