When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Two-folds for you!

Good morning - I'm back to share my latest DT make for Polkadoodles

Head over to the Challenge blog to see all the details & see what my other teamies have made, you will be inspired!

So for my make, I've used the fabulous Home for Christmas collection & have created an easel card with a fold back card on the top. Yep, one of those!

As you can see I've used papers, images and embellishments from the Cd, there isn't anything on that card other than the silver mirri card that doesn't come from the cd.

This is the inside of the easel card. I layered up the holly to create the stopper.

This is the inside of the folded card, it's decoupage.

To make this I created the two card bases, chose the papers and decorations and printed them off. Then I set about decorating the easel base before decorating the fold-back card. The fold-back card is then set onto the easel & glued in place. By making the bases first I got all the measurements correct. It took a little time but well worth I think as the card really stands out. All of the elements are easy to cut out and I only added a touch of Glossy Accents to finish it off.

Take care Zo xx
