Beverley - Week Three Fancy Cards

Hi Beverley here today -how are you enjoying all the Christmas Countdown? Christmas is fast approaching - only four weeks to go!  Today I am showing you two more complex cards - well one looks more like a decoration and the other looks like a mini book! Both are using mainly Simple Stories DIY Christmas collection

My first card is a tepee or wigwam card with a difference - sorry I do not have progress photos as I am a night time scrapper and my camera is not very good at night. There are tutorials online though.
I made three different size cards and then decorated them. Then as they are different sizes they stack up on each other and make a little Christmas tree. The Christmas messages can be written on the lower tepees and therefore not show up so the card can be a little decoration too. The only problem is it cannot go flat and go in the post.

My next "card" is more like a brag book. I thought it would be a great idea to have something that is a little more then a card as a present for grandparents, aunties, uncles or other family members. Ideas to use this idea could be progressive photos of your children with Santa or fur babies dressed as Santa over the years or a photo and personal message from each member of your immediate family.

I have done a concertina binding for the "card" and then created the pages - again using tutorials online. I have only done a sample of what you could create - you could have more pages too.

Thanks for looking and I hope you are having some time to join in the fun! If you do make sure to load them here for a chance to win some prizes.
