Dare 43: Celebrate!

Blue2 Yes people tis that time of the month again. The Aussie "How Dare You" challenge has been published and it is indeed celebrate.

Now I know many regular viewers are probably sick to the back teeth of my Fancy Fold Christmas Card but as I started the first design for this particular challenge it only seems right that I still show this one and finally finish showing this design here too.

I have had umpteen enquiries about how I make these cards and I will endeavour once again to explain the basis of the design to you.Blue1

You take three Tri-fold cards and stick them together side by side by the flaps. You then decorate all three. You fold them into each other and by applying tape to the back of the middle panel you then stick them all in a fourth Tri-fold card. This final Tri-fold card will need a double score line and will not meet in the middle!

Tie with ribbon, decorate the front and Bob is your mother's brother!

If you are still stuck email me and I will do what I can to help.
