Quick and easy Christmas cards

I have a flip card to share today!  It's a Christmas card:

Who doesn't love the WOW factor of a flip card?  If you want to make quite a lot of flip cards, no worries, the Artiste cartridge has many flip card designs for you.  All you need is to place the paper on the mat, then with a push of a button, the flip card is done. :)  This cartridge can help you make a ton of party flavors and 3-D items.  When I first got it I was a bit worried that it might not be "my cartridge" because I don't throw parties at home, but I always reach it for the flip card designs.  Those designs alone won my heart.

I have left the rest of the card very simple.  The flip part is a circle, so I looked for some stamps then I found these perfect ones in Twinkle, the current Stamp of the Month.  I cut out a circle to stamp the two star-lined circles, but I fussy cut the smaller one that reads Christmas Love.  This way the outer ring of stars can be seen more clearly.  The final step was to line the card base with some lovely patterned paper.  I chose the one with snowflakes and holly in the White Pines paper packet.

So there you have it.  This flip card came together quickly and easily, yet didn't lose its elegance and wow factor.  Love it!
