♫ ♪ Over The River and Through The Woods To Grandmother's House We Go ♫ ♪
That song was playing in my head the whole time I was making this card. LOL!
This is my DT make for the Tilda's Town Challenges and this week we're asking that you use a Creative Fold or Tag. I have no idea if there is a name for this type of cut and fold as I just kinda made it up as I went along. I knew I wanted to create a path with a larger peak at the back and smaller ones in the front. I went through many pieces of paper trying to get it to look right and be able to fold it flat.
The card is 5 x 7 so it's easy to mail but I had to use two pieces of cardstock glued together to give it a sturdy structure, otherwise it wanted to bow in some places and sag in others.
My images, Welcome To A Sweet Christmas and Edwin's Snowman, have been colored with Copic markers. All of my die cuts were cut out of white paper and either inked with Distress Inks or covered in holographic glitter (or both). As usual, the plan changed and this went from being a mostly white design to being quite colorful.
