Fun Fold Friday with Pick a Pennant

I know, it seems like I’m obsessed with alliterative titles – Manly Monday, the occasional Scrapbook Sunday and now, Fun Fold Friday. I promise, no more. But, different folds really are fun and there are so many! I’ve decided to feature one each week for awhile. To start off with, I’ve selected an easy one, a Z-fold.

Oh, yes, it’s a Christmas card. I’ve resisted the urge to do “Santa Saturdays”!

Design Notes for Pick a Pennant Christmas Card:

Well, of course the most interesting thing about this card is the fold! Here are the directions for the fold:

I added some of the terrific Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper to each panel. Isn’t it cute? The Santa was stamped with Versamark, heat embossed with Black Stampin’ Heat Emboss Powder then colored with Stampin’ Blends. I made the pennants with the Playful Pennants Framelits and some more of the Under the Mistletoe Paper.  I stamped the Ho Ho Ho  with the Pick A Pennant stamp set.

Do you like the little tag I stamped on the inside?

I know that spring will come soon. We did not get snow in the recent Nor’easter but got lots of wind and rain and weather that causes me to long for Spring. And the stamp set, You’re Inspiring, is filled with daffodils and makes me feel that indeed spring will come.
