Whimsical Wednesday #16 & Wacky Wednesday #46 Challenges

Its been several weeks since my last post. Sadly, I haven't had much time in my craft room lately. But this week I made a promise to myself to do something crafty at least once a week. This is what I was able to come up with tonight. I created my very first gatefold card and it applies to two great challenges.

Whimsical Wednesday #16 Fun With Folds: The challenge is to make any style card other than an A2 or shape card.

Wacky Wednesday #46 Christmas in July over at More Than Favors.

Here is my entry:

Supplies used:
Red, Green and White Cardstock from my stash
DSP: DCWV the Christmas Combo
Stamp: from the dollar bin at Michaels
Ribbon: Satin ribbon from Wal-Mart
Ink: SU Real Red
Stickles for some shine!
Accent Essentials Cart for the Snow Flake (or at least thats what it looks like to me)
My card is 4 1/4 X 4 1/4 folded!
