Christmas Concertina Card

 On Wednesday afternoon I hosted a private Crafternoon Tea party for a group of 9 ladies who work together. There was a mix of experienced crafters, casual crafters and total novice crafters so coming up with a project to do in 2 hours, along with a cream tea was a bit of a challenge. I turned to an old faithful project which I first shared in Sale-A-Bration 2014 and I even have a video on how to make it which you can find HERE
This is how the card looks before you open it, almost like a little book tied up with our lovely Real Red Stitched Satin. When you open the card you get the full wow factor of the Concertina style.
We used the Candy Cane Lane papers, the card uses one whole piece of 12x12 paper plus a little card for the layers and then I cut up one of the pieces to add the little images onto the design. We have also used the Stitched with Cheer stamp set for the little background stars which currently has 10% off until Monday 28th November.

I thought you might like to see the set up for the event that I ran. I love setting up my tables with the vintage china and making it a special event for my customers. I don't love the washing up quite so much!
I called upon my friends at Tarte and Berry (look them up on Google) to supply some gorgeous Mince Pie Slice and Salted Caramel Brownies to add to the usual scones that I supply.
 They went down very well and everyone seemed to have a great time. Thank you for visiting me ladies, hope to see you again soon.
