"This is a fast, affordable and easy card with a striking effect. I love making folded cards especially for special events like Christmas. Even though I don’t celebrate Christmas (I’m Jewish) I still have a lot of fun making beautiful cards for all my friends who do celebrate it. " ~Einat

Einat's Snapguide Tutorial

Tip #1: I recommend using liquid glue when you need to attach little pieces on panels and you need the margins around it to be even. The glue takes time to dry and that will give you a chance to move the piece to its place.

Tip #2: Take apart flower collections and rearrange them as you want according to what fits your project.
