Oh Christmas Tree............

Well the girls at Bah! Humbug! might need smelling salts when they see this! Two weeks running????? I can't remember the last time I was able to do this :D The theme this week is Fancy Folds so I've made a style of card I haven't made for ages - a two way fold card. Half of the front of the card is cut away on the diagonal and then decorated. The above photo is of the card closed.

Then a smaller, tent fold card is stuck to the inside and the front of that is decorated too.

Hopefully this one shows that part a bit better. I've used mottled stone bp from collection 4 on the fronts of both cards and in order to save ink, I cropped to shape for the triangular piece in word so that I printed out only what I needed. The Oh Christmas Tree script was added using word art. The Christmas garland was coloured with promarkers and added with 3D foam.
The main image on the front is one of the pre-coloured Christmas Tree Snowglobes and I put the base through a papermania snowflakes border embossing folder and added stickles to the snow before shaping it and adding it to a piece of pearlescent paper that had been put through the swiss dots folder. I just finished it off with homemade gold mirri 'card candy'.
My card is also for these challenges:
