Today I'm playing along with Tic Tac Toe Challenge #519 on The Papers Players with my Poinsettia card.  I used the Red Velvet Paper to make the Poinsettia.  I love the poinsettia dies - they cut and emboss all on one step.

  9. Cut 2 large leaves and 1 smaller leaf from Mossy Meadow cardstock

    Festive Friday #FF0073 - Winter/Winter Solstice

     It's time for another Festive Friday Challenge!  Every second Friday we post a challenge for you with a specific theme and a Inspo List of 10 items to choose from to create your project.  We encourage you to create a project based on the theme and Inspo List and then post it using at least 3 items from the inspiration list.

    This week’s challenge #FF0072 is Winter/Winter Solstice on December 21st. Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. I hope you’ll make a card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and join us. You don’t need a blog to enter Festive Friday. Check out this link on how you can play along with this challenge. If you want help entering, please email me at stampinwithmelva@gmail.com and I’d be happy to help you! 


    For today's challenge, I selected a blue, purple, snowflakes and a fun fold from this week’s Inspo List.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create. 

    My card today is a Tea Bag Fold Snowflake card.  I was inspired by flower cards on Pinterest that used this fold so I decided I had to try it out.  You can check out my YouTube Video for tips and instructions on creating this fold.


    Isn't this pretty!  I really like how it turned out.  You can use smaller squares to make your snowflake.  These were 3" squares of the Snowflake Spendor Designer Series Paper but in my video I used 2 1/2" squares.


    Check out my video for the instructions for the card.  

    For more inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the  Festive Friday Challenge Design team.

    Measurements

    • Misty Moonlight Cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" - folded in half
    • Highland Heather Cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and 1" x 3 1/2"
    • Whisper White Cardstock 3 3/4" x 5" and 4" x 5 1/4"
