Arlene creates a brilliant card using A Christmas Carol! Check it out below:

"It’s Christmas in July with this gorgeous new holiday collection from Graphic 45 - A Christmas Carol! I created what’s called a “bendi fold” card. It’s a fun way to create a dimensional card that you can display, but then fold flat for mailing. I included a video tutorial so you can give one of these a try!

Tip: Be sure to have a sharp blade on your craft knife as you’ll be cutting through 2 layers of paper (design paper and card stock) to create the slits for your tabs on the card."~Arlene
