Wishing you Sacks full of Joy

Hi Everyone!!!  I am here today to give you a bit of inspiration. For my creation today, I made a flap card.  I am using an image from "Mulberry Wood EZMount Stamp Set - Dreams of Santa".  The whole Mulberry Wood collection is so cute, so be sure to check them out HERE.

 I stamped my image onto premium white card stock and colored it using the Spectrum Noir Markers. These are some really great markers and I am using them all the time.  I used one of my dies and cut out my colored image and for the mat behind it. I added a bit of sparkle using my stickles.  I added a few snowflakes with pearls in the centers.

The main directions can be found HERE.  If you know me by now, I modified the directions to make a slightly larger card. Closed size is 4 1/4 x 6.

To make a flap card, you will need a piece of card stock 6 x 11 1/2.  Score this piece of card stock at 3 and again at 7 1/4.  

Fold these score lines.  The smaller scored piece will be the front of the card.  Decorate as you please.  I added a small piece of velcro to hold my card closed, but this isn't needed.
Here is a picture of the first flap opened:

And finally all the way opened. So much room to add embellishments.
