Cascading Sweetness..

Hey Peeps, hope you are all well....I am still fighting off my flu, but sneaking in bits and pieces of crafting....
I apologize for all these early x-mas cards, but I have a few orders to fill, so I want to get some made now....

I love this fold, it's so easy, yet so effective....it is called a cascading card, lots of videos on this...

This is what you see when you open the envelope...I silver embossed the edging, made my little tree, adding some wool front and back...

Then you open it up, and it unfolds like this...

I dont have  many christmas supplies, so I recycle old cards and bits and pieces of tags...The sled is a pocket for my scalloped edged circle punch  tag...The mitten tags is bits and pieces of recycled cards...

The tree flattens down for shipping....I am really happy with this card, I think its so cute and cheerful...

Thanks for peeking...

I am linking this to challenges on the wonderful Flying Unicorn Blog....xoxoxo
