Springy Christmas


I finally did Tracy's monthly challenge before the deadline. Here in Texas it has been over 100 degrees every day this last week so making Christmas Cards felt a little weird. I am so glad I am keeping on track with these though. At this rate I should have enough to send all handmade cards out this year.

This month Tracy's challenge was to make 5 cards all using the same main image. This time though the challenge was to use a different fold. So I decided to try out a fold that caught my eye a while ago. It's called a spring card. Because when you take it out of the envelope it's supposed to spring up by itself.

I had a lot of fun making these cards. Cardstock is a tempting turquoise color and the paper is Heidi Grace. The image is my favorite little monkey Changito. I used my extra-giga scallop circle punch which was the perfect size. You can find the step by step instructions here:
Thanks for looking
