Hello friends, thanks for popping in today -  I have the third and final Christmas card created using some extras from my kits - a Variation of a Theme #3.  You can see the full instructions HERE the original gorgeous Joy Fold Card - with a twist!  A photo of the three cards together is further down this post.

2. Cut patterned paper to 10.5cm x 15.5cm, the second piece 11cm x 4.5cm
3. Cut a third square of striped patterned paper to 7cm x 7cm
4. Adhere the patterned paper using E-Z Runner - adding lace across the lower panel.

5. Cut red the card to 7.5cm x 15cm - score at 7.5cm. Adhere the striped patterned paper to the top red card flap. 
6. Adhere to the center of the card base using E-Z Runner Permanent Adhesive on the back. Make sure the fold of the smaller flap is facing down.  
7. Stamp the sentiment onto a white card insert 7cm x 7cm and adhere to the red card stock.

8. Cut/emboss one (1) Lacey Circles (#1 being the smallest).
9. Pop up onto the striped patterned paper stock using 3D Foam Squares.

11.Cut one small circle in patterned paper and one the next size up in green card
12.Attach the smaller circle to the larger one using double sided tape.
13.Attach 3D foam squares to the lower portion of the circle and adhere to the lower corner of the card slightly over the edge of the smaller flap to keep it closed. Embellish using a recycled button.
