Christmas Wishes

This card is an example of a Double Twisted Easel card (a technique from the new TJ 3D and FUN FOLD CD) Technique Junkies has been blog hopping with different vendors all week. This is a technique they challenged us to try.
Several of my favorite challenge sites have some sort of Christmas theme in their challenges. Kraft Journal challenges us to create a Christmas card (the base card is Kraft). Tuesday Throwdown is looking for a masculine holiday card. City Crafter says Santa is Coming and wants to see Santa. The Artistic Stamper's December challenge is Christmas.
All of my stamped images and sentiment are from Artistic Outpost's Frosty and Friends. I love these stamps. They are so cute without being cutesie. The Design Paper on the card base is from My Mind's Eye Christmas Lost and Found -- love that bling. The center is made from grungeboard die cut into holly leaves and colored using Pan Pastels.
I love that the card makes a great holiday decoration, but that it also folds down flat for mailing,
