Twinkle Cardmaking Workshop - CTMH October SOTM

This is a clean and simple Christmas card workshop.  It all started with a set of 6 cards, they were so easy to put together I decided to expand it to an 18 cards workshop. If you're like me you need quite a few cards over the Holiday Season. By simply changing the featured colour you can make a copious amount in no time at all. So why not get a jump start on your Christmas cards now.

I know you might not be ready to start thinking about making your Christmas cards just yet.  You can get ready by pre-purchasing your items and when November comes along you'll be ready to go. During the month of October you can get this super cute stamp set for only $6 with a qualifying purchase. So why not get your supplies ready.  Plus as an added bonus when you order through me, you get this ready to go project file for FREE.  This card workshop is available for both Cricut Expression CCR and  Cricut EXPLORE Design Space. All the design work is done you simply need to access the file and cut your project.

Here are some of the supplies you'll need to complete this Cardmaking workshop.

Both the CCR & CDS (Cricut e-files) include 6 standard 4.25 x 5.5 cards. The entire ready to go project will take you approximately 15 minutes to cut per set of 6 cards.

Zoe Flip Flap Layout

This Flip Flap layout was made using Christine's workshop. I made a few changes but the creative credit goes to Chris.

Here's layout 1, this is the base pages for your Flip Flaps. 
Here's what it looks like when closed.
And here's what it looks like when opened.  I moved the center Flip Flap to the right outer edge, just a personal preference.
