A Very Fancy Christmas

I'm just nudging my way in here with an extra post! My gift to you as it's Christmas.  I will be back with one more post for the year at the end of this week. 

My bestie gave me a fabulous card for my birthday. She always finds amazing folds to use that I haven't tried before (do come back for the next post, as I couldn't resist trying it myself!).  So naturally I had to find a fun fold to use for her Christmas card. 

This is a 5 Panel Fancy Fold card. It's really simple to do, but very effective.  I love the shape it gives in the centre when it's folded. 

It folds up really neatly into a regular card shape, so it's great for mailing.

I used 'Joy To The World Tomte Gnome' as it features a pup and my bestie has a cute ickle pup!
I did the emboss resist technique for the background...the snow should be white, but I forgot when using clear embossing powder that my embossing pen still shows blue.  Oops. 

You can grab this image as part of the 'Spirit Of The Season Tomte Gnomes' set.

I do hope you've had a chance to play with some of these fabulous gnomes.  Don't forget to show us your creations in the Faery Ink Facebook Community.
