Fancy fold and Christmas....

I remember that one of the first card that I ever posted to this blog was a tri-shutter card and after so many postings, I come back to it again.  The best things about these cards is that they look so complicated and yet so easy to make - just my kind of cards. Anyway, without much ado, here is my newest tri-shutter card

Pretty, ain't it ? The card has my favorite color combination - red and brownish green ( or greenish brown , may be) . And it also has my favorite stamped characters - Edwin and Tilda. I really enjoyed coloring Edwin and am especially proud of the lantern and how the light reflects on his pants.  Also, I kept this card embellishment-free ~ I have been paying too much for postage lately :(
But I think in the case, it works.

The sentiments next to Edwin are from Justrite while those next to Tilda are computer generated.

This is how the card looks completely open.The blank space on the central panel is for a message. The papers are all from DCWV.
