My favorite card ever!

I have been (barely) holding off posting this card because I used it for the Card Swap on Crop Chocolate. But since I have now also entered it in the Xyron Christmas Card Challenge over on their Facebook page, I may as well share it here too!

Please, if you are on facebook and have not done so already, please leave a comment on  my card. The comments count as votes and I would love to win a Xyron prize pack! This is the link to my project

Thank you for your support!

Without further delay, may I present My Favorite Card I Have Ever Made!!!!!

It is called 'telescoping card.' I found the tutorial in a newsletter from Splitcoast Stampers. You can find the tutorial here. It pretty darn easy and fun to make! You can switch up the shapes to whatever you prefer and do this for any season/occasion. I also added the little tag, since the stamps I used did not have a sentiment.

And here is why it is my favorite card ever. Easy and fun to make. Love the papers. And I finally used the adorable snowmen stamp set from CTMH.

I made four for the card swap. It was hard to part with them....
