Hi Peeps - hope you have had a great weekend!
As I'm going away on my jollies in a couple of days,
I thought I'd better get something posted before I go as I've been a bit behind with things this last week or two. 
Thanks to the lovely ladies at Bah! Humbug for the current Challenge - the main focal point on your Christmas card must be TEXT, and I just happened to have this card which I made recently, when trying out a Square K Card Template from WS Designs, (which I have had for ages), and hey-presto - the
main focal point is TEXT - yay!!  The fabulous Holly paper is from Anna Griffin - a few last scraps which I had been clinging onto, as sadly they don't make it any more. The gold heat-embossed Text stamp is from Papermania/Anita's (again an old favourite).
This WS template (designed by Kay Carley) is really easy to work with - not very easy to photograph the finished results though! 
The inside layer is a concertina shape, and the greeting square pops out of the aperture when the card is opened, but lays flat when closed!
Soooo - one less Xmas card to make! Hope you like it!

This is gorgeous, Sylvia. I love the shape of the card, it's really unusual. That holly paper is yummy too. I'm not surprised you've been saving it. Holly always looks so Christmassy all by itself it needs like else to be classy does it?
I love it.
Hugs Lisax

Stunning creation Sylvia, love your paper and it´s such a pity AG has discontinued this. Fabulous sentiment and Kcard.
Pack a wee mack as showers are forecast at times during your jollies and have FUN.

I'm on big time catch up, off to look round at what I've missed and this one looks super with a real touch of elegance.

Hopefully back into blogland again unrestrained so will be back.
