Falliday Fest - Twist Gate Fold with Snowflakes

Hello friends!
Wanted to pop in to share another creation I made for the
FALLIDAY FEST event at Splitcoaststampers.

They have released another tutorial today called:
Twist Gate Fold -
CLICK HERE to see the tutorial
CLICK HERE for details on uploading your creation to the challenge forum.

I have made a sample for this tutorial and here's my version of it:
Here's what the card design looks like closed.  This is somewhat of an odd shaped design, but when you angle it around, it will fit nicely inside an A2 sized envelope for mailing which is very nice for Christmas card sending! :)

I haven't had a chance yet to pull out this stunning card kit from MFT, so I thought I would use it for this card design.  I have fallen in love with these gorgeous snowflakes from the Simply Snowflakes stamp set!   The green sparkle papers were included with the kit along with the ink colors I've used, but the plaid papers are from Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid petite paper pack.  I thought they just went nicely with the color scheme from this kit. I like the non-traditional color scheme.  The snowflakes were cut with the coordinating dies from the kit and then I punched out a small scallop circle with some more of that green sparkle paper to place in the center of the largest snowflake.  I then added a rhinestone to the center of each of the outside snowflakes.

Here's what it looks like on the inside of my card design:
I've used more images from the MFT Simply Snowflakes set to cover the inside design.  I guess I couldn't help it...I think I wanted to use all of the images in the set! LOL!  The ink colors I've used were the ones included within the card kit.

For the inside sentiment, I had to pull out my MISTI tool to selectively stamp the wording so that it would fit inside the narrow space inside.  So keep that in mind when making one of these that a narrow style sentiment would be easiest to use.

I thought this was a super fun and unique style of card design that I will certainly be using again in the future!  I hope you will stop by and join in the "Falliday Fest" fun with us! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon!
