MC July/11 - Star Fold Greetings card



I came across this card structure recently and have Googled trying to find the originator, but not having any luck. Since the card doesn't stand on it's own, I went a step further than what I saw and added a hole and loop for hanging - perfect for a Christmas tree.

I really enjoyed making it and can see myself make a few more.


I'm also using a flourished holly design and the sentiment, both from Quietfire Design.

To see more descriptions and details and the template etc, just click on either card image. Enjoy.

And it fits for these challenges:
