Who doesn’t love getting cards in the mail?  I sure do.  It’s always wonderful to get happy mail and not bills.  But when the card opens to a surprise inside, wow!    Joy, happiness and good thoughts all rolled into one handmade card.
That’s what you pack into an envelop when you send a handmade card.  You send your love, a piece of your heart and a lot of good wishes.  That’s mighty powerful.
Jennifer Snyder here sharing  two tri-fold cards that open up to a delightful inside surprise.
The first card features one of my favorite designs from Creative Embellishments, Mr. and Mrs. Snowman.
These are the chipboard pieces I used on the cards in today’s post.
My paper choice for both cards is from Maja Design – “It’s Christmas Time” 12×12 collection.
This is a classically beautiful collection with an olde time appeal.
I dabbed white paint onto the chipboard Mr. and Mrs. Snowman set  and
Chipboard Snowflakes with a sponge, then lightly sprinkled
Aged Ivory Embossing Enamels  and heat to set the embossing powders.
Here is the second tri-fold card.  This is also made using from Maja Design – “It’s Christmas Time” .
The cover of the card was created by using both chipboard tress from Creative Embellishments – Very Merry Christmas chipboard set.
I have a series of images below showing the simple beauty of the chipboard tree design that has been glued together.
