Day 30! Whew! I made all 30 cards!

The final theme for Day 30 of Beccy's Place Month of Holiday Cards is Do What You Love.   So I made a cup of nice hot tea.  Then I thought about all the different parts of card making that I love.  The digis and stamps, the wonderful papers available, coloring,  fussycutting (yes, I love doing that),  iris folding, origami folding, embossing, the bling....  But what I love most is discovering a new card fold and creating one myself.  Beccy has a wonderful list of card folds on her blog.  That's how I first discovered her wonderful blog.  Splitcoast Stampers is another great resource for unique project and card fold tutorials, which is where I found instructions for this Layered Window Frame Card.

 I used CTMH paper, stamps, glitter gel and gems, with silver holly Dazzles on the side panels.
Thanks, Beccy, for a fun month of challenges and that extra push to get my cards finished.  Time to get out the address book and get these Christmas cards in the mail!

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
Hiding in My Craft Room Challenge #176 - Freestyle!  (making different card folds is my favorite style)
Polkadoodles Challenge Week 58 - Nordic Christmas
Scrapbooker Phd Challenge # 17- Shaped or Folded Cards
