Unconventional Christmas

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown has a technique challenge this week.   It is to create
a fancy fold card.  This is something I haven't done before so I thought I would give it
a try.  I also wanted to join in on the Dynamic Duos color challenge this week so I'm
combining the two and therefore have an unconventional Christmas card, at least color-

Ok, I had quite a time trying to get a decent picture of this easel card and this is about
as good as it gets.  I either had too much light or not enough.  I'm sure I'm not the only
one with these issues at times!  Anyway, I used a Sizzix embossing folder, my
Spellbinders poinsettia dies and a Martha Stewart corner and border punch.  I stamped
my greeting and heat embossed it and finished off with some pearl embellishments. Thanks
for taking a look!



  1. Very elegant the poinsettia is perfect.

  5. Non-traditional colors for Christmas cards are my very favorite Judy. This is very elegant in the purples and I love the easel fold. Thanks so much for joining us this week at 52CCT!

  6. Wow Judy, what a stunner! I love easel cards and I love purple and white on Christmas cards - I also love fancy decorative edges, textured embossing and bling so your card ticks ALL the boxes! A beautifully executed card which the recipient will very happily have on display this Christmas and they may display it in future years too! Thanks so much for sharing your fab fancy fold card with us at 52 C}CT! Ruth x
