Slowly, I create

At the rate of 1 card per day and having just started, I am thinking I am not going to get many Christmas cards out in the mail this year!!!  Oh well... I am having fun once again, so that is encouraging!!  Yesterday, I watched Beate's tutorial which you can find here on Splitcoast Stampers  and was inspired.  She made a beautiful Z-fold card and I just had to give it a try (quite interesting seeing as I am more than a clutz with a craft knife).  I managed to create a card for my son and his family and I am happy with how it turned out (and I suffered no injuries from the knife...LOL).   The paper I used is some "old" Bo Bunny it is from a page kit called Cherry Pie Family Ties, but I thought it looked very Christmas-y... The stamp is from The Angel Company and the die cut bow is a sweet little punch from Martha Stewart.  I hope you enjoy it and better yet, give it a try...

I realize now that I should have taken a photo to show the "swinging" part of the card (the tree with the large bow) but if you watch the tutorial, you will see the mechanics of the card.
