First Christmas Cards

I know it's only August, but these are the last days of my holidays and I was in the mood for using some of my vast collection of scrapbook papers, so here are my first creations.
If you are interested in how to do the start card, you can find a good tutorial here starcard. It's in German but Google translate and the pictures will probably help.
This is the card closed:

And here it is open.

Here is a simpler card made out of a piece of 6 x 12. If you want to know how to make it, email me.

Beautiful start to your Christmas cards Astrid. I love making them but always end up leaving it to the last minute and then rushing them>

Hi Astrid .... loving the christmas cards, and it feels like winter so why not make a start? Love both these ideas. I haven't forgotten we were going to do a challange/swap - just haven't had time and the pc breaks down every other day so not been about. Off to (hopefully) sunny Spain on Thursday. Hope you are well. Cindy x

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
