Folded Christmas tree card

It's Karen's turn to set the challenge for the Christmas Card Club and she asked us to make a card that included a teabag/origami folded topper. This was indeed a challenge for me! I played around with a few ideas, but then settled on making a teabag folded tree following this Youtube link.

All papers, including the gold foiled vellum beneath the tree were all from my Christmas offcuts box and the stars were from Poundland. I inked the bottom edges of the tree sections with a copic pen.

The fold foiling on the vellum doesn't show up there, but you get some idea of what it looks like from this close up on a section:

CHNC challenge 135: snowmen or women

It's Saturday again and time for a new CHNC challenge - for CHNC challenge 135 I'm asking to see snowmen or women.

My card features a small printed version of  'Frosty the snowman' added to the 'snowy postbox' image by Delicious Doodles, one of the sponsors.

Papers are from my Christmas offcuts box, ribbon is a left over piece of white and silver snowflakes. The snowflake ripple stickers were from Hobbycraft.
