Enchanted Christmas

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

‘A Card of Many Folds’.

This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.



If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site. 

I have created a Vertical 5 Step Card for this challenge showcasing one of the gorgeous new Christmas images from The Paper Shelter called 'Enchanted Christmas'. 


I'm using pre-coloured images in my creation today which come with or without a background scene. I have printed my images onto Cryogen White cardstock. 

Here's the inside showing all my folds. 


My card and inside paper layers were all cut on my Silhouette Cameo along with the sentiments and Christmas Trees.  The sentiments have Crystal Effects on them to make them glossy.

Stamps: Enchanted Christmas (The Paper Shelter)
Card: Very Vanilla & Primrose Petals (Stampin' Up)
Papers: Candy Cane Lane Jolly & Candy Cane Lane Sleigh Ride - Candy Cane Lane Collection (Bo Bunny)
