Christmas Wishes using Karen Burniston's Evergreen Pivot Panels

 Hello and welcome. I apologize for not posting anything the past few days, I have been fighting a cold and it's been kicking my butt, but I did manage to get a couple of things done. Today's card features Karen Burniston's Evergreen Pivot Panels die set. 

For this card, I made an A2 side fold card using a dark green cardstock. I die cut the pivot panel twice, once from red cardstock and once from a patterned paper from my Graphic 45 - Twas the Night Before Christmas paper pack. 

On the red cardstock pivot panel, I stamped the sentiments "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and "'Tis the Season to be Jolly" using VersaMark Ink and embossed the sentiments with white embossing powder. 

I trimmed the top and bottom pieces from the patterned paper pivot panel (say that three times fast!) and glued it on to the red cardstock pivot panel. Once the glue dried, I made the folds for the pivot panel by folding towards me first and then back to get a good fold line. 

I die cut three pieces of patterned paper using Karen Burniston's Rectangles - Crosshatch and added Distress Ink in Antique Photo around the edges to give it an aged look. I also cut rectangles from a vertical stripped patterned paper from the same paper pack and added Distress Ink to the edges as well. 
I glued these smaller pieces to the ends of the base paper and added a thin strip of patterned paper in green to act as a border between the two pieces. 

I die cut a small rectangle piece from Karen Burniston's Rockin' Rectangle die set to give the sender a place to write a short message and added that to the right side of the card. 

I die cut the trees from three different green patterned paper and added them to the pivot panel. Once I put everything together inside the card, I added stickers that accompanied the paper pack.

For the front of this card, I continued to use the same patterned paper, adding Distress Ink to the edges. 

I die cut a large oval from Karen Burniston's Ovals - Crosshatch die set using the same red cardstock as the pivot panel. I then die cut a smaller oval using an ivory cardstock and added Distress Ink to the edges. 

I die cut the word Christmas from Karen Burniston's Merry Christmas die and trimmed the word Merry from the top. I die cut this from the same green patterned paper as one of the trees in the pivot panel. I die cut the word Christmas from black cardstock twice then glued all the pieces together to give the word some dimension. 

I stamped the word "wishes" from MFT Bitty Holiday Wishes using VersaMark Ink on to black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. 

I added another sticker from the paper pack and that finished the card. My favorite thing about this card is how it has a vintage look to it. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. I hope you have a great day and Happy Crafting!
