Kathy's card is so beautiful, you could leave it on display all season long! Let's take a look:

Very Merry Christmas Card Tutorial, Saint Nicholas, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 10

"One of the holiday traditions I love the most is the giving and receiving of Christmas cards.  When I was a girl, my mother used to hang them all around the door frames of our house and I loved to stand and stare at all those lovely images of snowy meadows,  Jolly Santas, mischievous elves, and stately deer.  So I guess it’s natural that I grew up to love the process of creating Christmas cards.

Adding a special fold to a card really takes it to the next level.  This Very Merry Christmas card has a fun gatefold opening with a medallion front and a magnetic closure.  The inside is filled with pockets, tags and all sorts of eye candy to delight the senses and stir the imagination. This type of card is a gift in and of itself.  The inner pockets also provide a wonderful way to deliver a holiday gift card, tickets or cash gift.

It looks like a complicated card, but when you break it down into pieces, as I have in this Snapguide tutorial, it’s just a matter of following each simple step.  Before you know it, you’ve created your very own keepsake style Christmas card.  Let’s get started!" ~Kathy
