Fa la la la la...

     Day 7 at Beccy's Place 30 Days of Christmas cards and the prompt this time is the letter "F."  As you can see from the title on this post, I'm singing Christmas carols, starting with Fa la la la la, la la la la!  lol  The Festive stocking, Filled with gorgeous baubles was turned into a Fancy Fold, Dutch Door card.

     Edited to add:  Some of you have commented that you'd like to try the Dutch Fold so here's a link to the tutorial Beccy gave us.

     That stocking is Fussy cut (by hand, with scissors) and put onto the card front with dimensional dots.  I used small scraps of red dp to decorate the Dutch Door Flaps but left everything else in kraft.  Red and kraft happens to be one of my favorite, Christmas, color combos.

     I printed the sentiment, hand cut it, matted it with red CS, then added it and a hand-tied, plaid bow.  I liked the rather CAS look of it at that point so I left it alone.

What a cure and festive design Connie! Love your dutch door flaps for a unique design! The red and kraft is one of my faves to use for Christmas! Thanks for sharing! HUGS

What a festive card, Connie! I've never tried the "Dutch Door" fold before, so will have to tackle it on one of my holiday cards. Thanks for the inspiration! Thank you also for participating in our Tic-Tac-Tuesday challenge. Your red plaid stocking meets all the challenge requirements in a single card element - that might be a first! If you haven't already, please enter your card in the "Double Trouble" challenge. You've met all the requirements including the ornaments for their "Twisted Sister" challenge! -Donna

You're too funny NC! Falalalalalalalala definitely meets the requirements for the "F" challenge... and it gave me a chuckle as well. Your Dutch door card looks wonderful, I particularly like the mix of red and kraft, they always work well together. Great job!

What a cute card, love the design! So nice to see you joining in this month at my Crafty Wednesday challenge where it's all about seasonal holidays/Christmas! Hope you join in again soon!

Hi again NanaConnie. Me too, I like kraft and red, so pretty together. Love the CAS look and stocking filled with ornaments. My dad would say I can't carry a tune in a basket, but I think I'm going to join you in Fa la la la la la la la la anyway. Had to count my la's to make sure I was in tune. Again, thank you so much sharing your adorable creations with us at Double Dare and Try Stamping on Tuesday.
