Christmas Gatefold Card

The challenge for the Stampin' B's Design Team blog challenge is to make a gatefold card and use items with the letter 'P' and tell what they are. Mine, of course, would be pine cones and pine needles. Don't you love that image? It is so beautiful for winter and Christmas and is a stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers called Greetings of the Season.

My punched snowflakes are from one of my new toys. It is a Punch All Over the Page from Martha Stewart. It has a guide at the bottom so you can line up if you're punching a lot.

Hope you'll join up this week. A gatefold is very easy to make. If you need instructions, here is a good place to find them on Splitcoaststampers. Of course, you can make changes in size and however you like.

Another beauty. I love how you showcased that new Martha Stewart stamp. What a great way to bring out the beauty of it. Maybe I could talk my DH into driving me to Michael's tomorrow...lol I am still to dizzy from being sick to drive myself-but I will tell him it would make me feel better...lol
