Weekly-Favorite
These colors may be a little different for a Christmas card, but I was using the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge (CC606) colors of bermuda, coral & island indigo. I also did a fun Turkish map fold for the inside, per the Technique Challenge (TLC609). If you want the directions for this fold, just click the link for the TLC (above).

As a rule, I don’t usually do fancy folds…apparently I am unable to follow directions..well, I CAN follow directions, I just don’t, lol. It always ends up being a reinvention of the wheel when I can’t stop myself from changing things. So, I did follow directions (mostly) for this one. Mine is a little bit (.25 inch) larger than the directions. And the fancy fold didn’t kill me, so that’s a definite plus. I had to resize the dies to fit a square card (instead of a rectangle), but that’s not too hard. Actually, the hardest part was refilling my ATG tape gun. Sheesh! I bought a case of refills & turns out at least half of them are wound wrong so they are useless. That part was not fun. 

Here’s a look at the inside & how it looks folded flat. To me, it looks a little plain but I guess I’m not used to having to fill up that much real estate. Will have to work on that. Since the inside is copy paper, it does fold flat to fit into a regular envelope & it really isn’t bulky or heavy.
