Fancy Christmas Card Trade!

Fancy Christmas Card with a special fold!  This was the trade I organized at our quarterly Journey Coach Meeting. I am not sure why I threw the special fold into the mix.  I am all thumbs when it comes to folding. I spent a week-end trying to plan my trade out, searching Pinterest, Splitcoast Stampers and other peoples blogs trying to find a fold that made sense to me.
But all I could make easily was this simple tri-fold with a belly band! What's really cool is I am in love with the Spellbinders Majesty Circles Die I used in the middle... you can letter press with it and it turns out so pretty! You would think I would have picked something else after having to ink up, die-cut, and emboss over 100 of these for someones invitation. But it looks so classy I had to use it! Besides, I only had to do ten lol. The candles are from our new Christmas set, Christmas Melody, and those gorgeous 'snowflakes' are from our set Doily Blooms.

I stamped my greeting on the back. This is a little unorthodox but I liked how it looked!
I didn't get my set of the trades... so I may not have captured an image of everyone's, but these ones I did!

Sharon & Nikki, my deepest apologies... I wasn't able to get a photo of your cards ...which were both by the way gorgeous! I am so glad I did the trade because it challenged my folding resistence!
