Side V-Fold Cards

These are side V-fold cards - the edge of the patterned paper is cut and folded back. You do need a piece of double sided patterned paper for this technique. 

The first of two cards is one using some miscellaneous patterned paper. I stamped and die cut a poinsettia to place at the folded corner. Some branches and berries were added around the flower and I brushed the leaves with a clear shimmer brush. Stickles were also added to the berries and the center of the poinsettia. The sentiment was stamped in red at the side.

For the second card, I used one of the papers from the Jingle All the Way collection (Echo Park). In hindsight, this pattern is pretty busy and it would have been better to choose a less active pattern. However, I wanted to stay with the stocking theme so I die cut a stocking and some gifts and placed them in the center of the folded section. The sentiment was stamped on the open section of the card.
