Christmas in July

This week over at Polka Doodles we are trying to get you organised for Christmas .... uuummm, never sure that will ever work for me!!!

I have used all the fab papers and embellies from the NEW Angleberry Christmas CD to make my card. I designed the template myself as really wanted to make a mittens card, don't know why I did, but I did ....

This is my card as it stands up but I have designed it so that it flat to go through the post and fits in an A5 envelope (see below) .... I have also embossed all the edges and the top of the mittens with a mini dots folder and the mittens have been embossing using a snow flake folder ...

Here is a side view so you get a better idea of how it stands ....

Why not pop over to the Polka Doodles challenge blog and join in with us .... who knows it might get you (like me) to become a little more organised for Christmas !!!! lol

I am entering my card in to the following challenges:

As you like it challenge: Fancy Fold - this is my NEW favourite as wanted to do different folds so that my image really was the focal point
Milk Coffee Challenge - emboss it

Really darling card! Love the mittens, the DP, and your embellishments. And your design is really inventive--love how it stands up for display, but folds for mailing! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Jellypark Friends. Hope to see you again soon! :^)
Hugs, Penny
