Joyful Stars December Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars December Blog Hop. This hop features Current Close to my Heart Products by 12 fabulous and talented Consultants.

If you've come here from Stephanie's Blog you're on the right track. If you just happened upon my blog, that's fine, just continue from here and when you get back to me, you know you've seen them all.

Please leave us a little lovin' in our comments. We Love hearing from you! *Ü*

Paper and stamps used are from the White Pines Scrapbooking Workshop on the Go. 
Inks used were cranberry and New England Ivy.

Now hop on over to Crystal's Blog and see what outstanding artwork she has to share with you. If you would like more detailed instructions, see below.

Measurements are 5.5 x 12.
Measure half way down, which is 2.75 and make a tiny pencil mark. Do this on both sides.
Score the card at 2", 4", 8" & 10".
First fold is mountain, then valley, then valley, then mountain.
Cut each side from the pencil mark to the first TOP valley fold. BE PRECISE!!!
I saved the corners and glued them to the bottoms. NOT NECESSARY. But if you do, this is why I said to be precise.
That's all that's to it. Easy Peasy!!!

I did the same thing using both sides of the paper for two different looks. 

Now here is where my OCD kicks in. In the card with the Tree side of the paper out, I needed to stamp the holly on the corners becasue when you glue the corners to the bottom, the trees are upside down. Stamping the Holly distracted from that.
I also felt that the look wasn't finished, so, since the card is only 4" wide, I cut a piece of coordinating CS to 4.25 x 5.5 and mounted it on the back.  Then I was happy with the finished results.
Those of you that know me understand my obsession with perfection!!! *Ü*

As usual, work of art. Going to hate to see the White pines paper will soon be gone.
