The holidays are fast approaching and if you are like me and still have a laundry list of things to do to get ready for the festivities, you might want to take a break and check out this cardmaking idea in case you need one more special craft item for family or friends. I am using both the Wonder & Wishes and Winter Twig collections today.
This is not a new card idea, but I think the beautiful collections from Little Yellow Bicycle give it an updated look and I can really appreciate how different the cards look with the two collections even though the steps are the same. I challenge you all to grab your LYB collections and try it out too!
This is called a Tri-Fold Shutter Card and it is a really fun idea for adding a bit more embellishment, style and sentiment to a card, mostly because the way it is folded provides a lot more real estate to decorate. It is also really EASY to make - I promise. But not to worry, there is both a Training Reel and written instructions to talk you through it. I used the gorgeous Little Yellow Bicycle Wonder & Wishes Collection for this Christmas Card.
See how it opens up and has a "Pop Up" effect. I love that it has a number of panels to design and decorate. Not to mention how I was able to really showcase some of the specialized collection embellishments like the 10 Things Present pocket.
I love this perspective and that ribbon is really a cardstock sticker from the Favorite Pieces embellishments. You cannot believe how easy it was to make this card! It was so easy that I had to make two of them just to make sure I had all of the holidays covered this year.
This "chilly" card was created with the frosty Winter Twig collection and is a more generic holiday card and can be used for the different holidays at this time of year. I love how all of the blue brown and white go together, but leave room for many shades of good winter fun.
I am smitten with the little chipboard "skater" and had to add him/her to my card. This card was just as fun with the multiple panels to design and decorate and I also appreciate the Clear Cuts with glitter accents, because Little Yellow Bicycle uses "responsible glitter" and it does not come off on you!
Little Yellow Bicycle is so good about the little things. The attention to detail is so much so that the tiny journal cards come pre punched with this fun notebook pattern. I only needed to add it to the card.
Please see the video below for product ideas and tips on how to make these cards.
I have also included a PDF of instructions for how to make this card.
