Reverse Collar-Fold Video

Hello, Crafters.

Today I uploaded my video which shows how I made the reverse collar-fold card I shared with you Tuesday week ago. 

Someone contacted me and asked if I'd make a video.

I really didn't know what to call it!

I settled on Reverse Collar-Fold because that's what I was trying to work out when I came up with this design!  

I've made this card with four different designs of Designer Series Paper (DSP) and I'm happy with three of them. 

The one I'm not happy with is the one with the sentiment stamped in Cherry Cobbler. 

I think that because both sides of this DSP are quite busy, the stripes acros the top aren't anywhere near as striking as the others.

The thin stripes just don't quite work but it needs something! 

In fact, as I'm sitting here writing, I'm thinking maybe a solid strip of the green design DSP instead of three thin stripes may work better! 

I don't have time to try it now, but I will do another time!
The card in question is featured in Photograph 5.

I used two stamp sets for this card. 

The sentiment is from the Wonder of Christmas and the pine cones, branches and berries are from Peace This Christmas.

That's about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
