Rejoicing with You - Double Flip

Thinking that maybe a "Christmas in July" Challenge would keep me cool this summer, I decided to give it a try! So far, it's not working...

I invite you to visit the Double Trouble Challenge (DTC) #5 and make a holiday card. Our challenge runs from July 16 until July 29, 2018. Trouble Maker's Thing 1 is Christmas in July, Double Dare's Thing 2 (optional) is to play along at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog (H2H) and Twisted Sister's Thing 3 (optional) is to use a fun or fancy fold. You could be eligible to win a prize!

See the tutorial on making this Double Flip Fun Fold Card HERE. This is not the only style - there are tutorials on several other variations available. I elected to change my card by matting all of the patterned papers before adhering to the card base. I am please with the results and the card only took me about 90 minutes to make once I had viewed the tutorial and selected my paper.

I think this fold would really be fun if it were made using images of cute little critters celebrating Christmas with Santa Claus.

Hope to see you at DTC #5 and H2H.
