Today sees a new challenge at Anything Goes and this fortnight our theme is Early Christmas, I just love Christmas and have been looking forward to all the cards I need to make for my huge family. Not sure who is for yet, but I am really pleased with how it turned out.
I used one of the new LOTV stamps called Christmas Gifts, isn't she cute? Coloured in Copics with plenty of Glamour Dust, oh how I love this stuff, not used it since last Christmas.
I made another punch around the page cards using a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is LOTV too and the die cuts are Memory box, I didn't have any glitter card so I cut it out of normal card I had intended to coat with Glossy Accents and sprinkle with Glamour Dust but it takes so long and the die cuts are very intricate so I came up with a good idea I gave them a quick spray with Shine and Sparkle and then sprinkled on Glamour Dust, this was much quicker and dried really quickly.
This is the inside, with two little pockets for messages.

I was asked if I could do a tutorial for this type of card, it is really quite simple - if you are using a Martha Stewart punch around the page you can only use certain measurements, starting at 4 inches with increments of 2 3/4 inches. The other card I made was 6 3/4 inches by 9 1/2 inches, this card is 6 3/4 inches.
You start by punching in each corner with the corner punch and then finish off with the straight punch.
Decorate the panels - the then fun part. I sort of eyeball how I want the inside joining panel.
I score in the middle and then again each side, I then angle the edges and decorate.
I use the red double sided, really sticky tape to joint them together. See I told you it was easy.
Paper is Bo Bunny, which along with Martha Stewart punches can be purchased at the Craft Den.
The other DT at Anything Goes have made some amazing creations so please drop over and see them.
