Merry Christmas, Stampers!!!

I had a great time designing our family Christmas card for this year - a twist-fold card inspired by Robin Messenheimer.  Take a look at Robin's instructions.  My design was inspired by Connie Babbert's card.  I love this little guy from Merry Winter - such a shame this set was only available for one year.  Don't you love him?!



You can see the pocket inside - it held our family picture:


I accidentally cut one of the patterned paper rectangles corner-to-corner the wrong way, so I used the reverse side to create a color variation:





All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
