Enjoy a Spellbinding "Tattie holidays!"

Only two more posts for my Aberdeen samples then I'll be moving on to Elgin.
So all change on Wednesday this week.

On to today.....
Closed with a wee peak!

And open.

And inside.

For this card I have used:
Spellbinder Shapeabilities dies;  Holiday tags, Layered Poinsettia and Nested Pine trees.
Martha Stewart punch Doily lace.
Gorjuss stamp "Holly" and MME Loss and Found Christmas.
Papers MME Lost and found Christmas 12" papers and 6" pad.
MME Loss and Found brads.
Coloured with copic pens, Stickles holly and Distress ink Vintage photo.
Finally the gold beads (centre of poinsettia) are from my stash.

The measurements for this card are mentioned in an earlier post but for a quick recap...
the first card is 29 x 15 cms scored and folded 7 plus 7 1/2 cms in from each side.
The centre card is 13 1/2  by 18 1/2 cms folded at 2 1/2 cms
this flap is used to attach the card to the centre top
of first card....
now decorate!
And enjoy!

I love this shape of card but I do need to give a wee toot to Create and Craft for giving me the inspiration to adapt an idea seen on there.

For the next fortnight I have my boys off for the local "tattie holidays"
although there will be no tattie picking going on in this house with the X box being favoured.
Little do they know that if the weather is fine....I have a plan!
Fresh air and exercise....this is going to hurt, LOL.
