Fun Fold Christmas Card

Hello Friends!  At Inspired Stamps, we are focusing on Fun Fold Christmas cards today.  I haven't made a fun fold card in a long while, and after thinking about it for days I finally worked out one I was happy with.

I used the Inspired Stamps set Choir Boy/Angel and Nativity (sentiments) for the card.  The finished card measures 4.5x4.5".  Here are some pictures to show you how the card is folded and decorated.

Untie the silk ribbon, and open the top flap:

Open the horizontal folds, to the inside of the card.

On the inside left panel, I adhered  the Scripture sentiment and a tiny die-cut star decorated with a tiny i-rock glam rock.  The sentiment piece was sponged with Distress Inks Old Paper and Shabby Shutters and some faux stitch lines with a black pen.

On the inside right panel, I decorated it with die-cut snowflakes and tiny blings.

Here's a closer look at the stacked hearts and the cute HLO Choir Boy.  He was coloured with Copic Markers (Skin - E000, E11, E31, R20  Hair - YR23, YR24, Y21, E31, E35  Shoes & Tunic - BG000, B91, B93) and adhered with some pop dots onto the hearts.
