Christmas Cards all year Round Mid Month

Today I have a mid month post for Christmas Cards all year Round. I created another iris fold ornament card however this time I used different red patterned papers for the folding part. I'm not sure if I like it any better then the first one I did. What do you think? HERE is the other card/post. The iris folding ornament stamp is by Stamp N Plus and can be found HERE. For this card I put a sparkly explosion looking embellishment in the center of the iris fold. I had to use two tiered foam adhesive for it to work. The embellishment is by Making Memories.

For the rest of my card I  put dobs of Stickles by Ranger all around the image and also some on the ornament. Then I boarder punched a piece of We R Memory Keepers patterned paper and adhered some felt ribbon to it before taping it onto my card front. The felt ribbon is by Oriental Trading Co. I then circle punched a scrap of gold and white cardstock using Creative Memories punches. I placed the sentiment sticker on the white circle and used dimensional adhesive to layer it on the gold circle before adhering it to the card front. I had to use glue dots on the gold circle to get it to stick to the felt. Patterned paper inside the iris fold are by Hot off the Press, Deja Views, Making Memories and My Mind's Eye and the stamp ink by Stampin Up.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Challenges: 4 patterned papers {One of the pp in the iris fold is from 2005}


  1. I love your iris fold! It's been a while since I did one - they are fun and I am always pleased at how they turn out. Yours is beautiful! I checked out your other one too - they are both lovely! I didn't know there were iris folding stamps - I have only done them from patters - thanks for the tip! Enjoy your day!
