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.
These are the Copics I used.

I Love Snowmen 08147
Since the challenge is stripes, I thought a stripe embossing folder on the white & the Beaded Strings Bg on top of the brayered layer would be perfect. After I stamped the cute Umbrella Snowman w/ Memento & colored with Copics, I overstamped w/ Versafine (it was still in my Misti), then die cut w/ a little out of the box to keep from cutting the umbrella. I then die cut it again using the next smallest die, brayered the cut off frame then put it back. The stripes on the front were embossed on an angle & just on the one corner for a little interest. The partial I Love Snow greeting was stamped onto a pennant which was colored around the edges w/ Copics & the die cut Snow was added below. The extra snowflakes were die cut from the Snow die.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

My first card is for today’s Technique Challenge (TLC565) to put a bow on your project. This is a very simple card…the front is one big die cut that covers the card front. I die cut it out of a dk green w/ gold dots designer paper

After die cutting it, I die cut it again using the largest die from the flourished star pattern die then backed it w/ a piece of ivory that has small flecks in it. A lt kraft layer was added behind it & I used the same lt kraft to die cut the bow.

My second card is also CAS (clean & simple) & is for the CAS356 Challenge to use a snowman. I stamped my snowman, masking just the very bottom, then added the “melty” part w/ a Micron pen. The tree line was stamped behind him & I added a little color w/ Copics & some sparkle w/ stickles.
