The As You See It Challenge #221 is a Fill In The Blank: My favorite type of card to send is…..a HOLIDAY card. Give me a holiday and yes you will get a card. So much fun to create cards for holidays and different seasons. So today’s card is using a fun fold that Buddy Johanna forwarded to me (sorry I lost the link to the original card which used a sailing theme). The window part that makes the card free standing tucks under the horseshoe and you can slip it out to make it lay flat. It is a larger card and does need extra postage but after my original draft and some extra reading I think it turned out pretty nicely. So the cardstock and patterned paper is GKD, not sure of my fancy shamrock die on the front, the Lucky Horseshoe with flowers are Cheapo Dies, inside I used Playful Leprechauns is from Tutti Designs and the shamrock stencil was found on Amazon for cake decorating. The inside sentiment is from Colorado Craft Company’s Lovely Legs.
Thanks for looking. Be Safe.

I am so happy you posted this Gayle. I will eventually get mine done with the help you have sent to me, but I haven’t been very motivated in my craft room until today. I love how this turned out and think it is a great holiday card.
Thanks for forwarding this fun fold, Johanna. When I tried the second time, it came together nicely, thanks to Bonnie’s input.
You are welcome. It turned out great and maybe mine will be okay once I get back to it.
It turned out spectacular. Such a fun challenge and your answer is exactly who you are.
Thanks, Bonnie, I do enjoy having a reason to create.
Love your card! It sings YOU. Love fun folds.
Thanks so much, Lisa; I do love all of that green.
Pretty fold! Holiday cards are great too. I don’t think I’ve ever made a St Patrick’s Day card, but then no-one I know is of Irish descent. The bright greens are fun and I like how the elegant black and white DSP carries on the theme but stops the green from dominating. Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It Challenge.
Thanks Jan I appreciate your comments and another fun challenge.
Gayle, what a fun card! I really like your fold and all the sweet touches.
That card is just full to the brim with good luck charms! I love the black and white shamrock paper as a backdrop to the green die cut! Thanks for joining us again at As You See It Challenges.
What a great fun fold – love all that green, so perfect for St Patrick’s Day! Whoever receives this card is lucky for sure. Thanks for sharing your fun holiday card with us over at As You See It for our current challenge!
Wow, this is such a fun card…cool fold, bright colors, adorable leprechauns! Happy mail is always fun to get, no matter the holiday! Thanks for sharing this at As You See It this week!
