A-Caroling We Will Go




These happy little carolers are all decked out in their winter finest. At first glance you might think this card may be too difficult or time-consuming. Actually, it is neither!

What MAKES this card is the fabulous cardstock. You have to start with the best. I love The Winter Wonder Stack from DCWV. (No, they aren't paying me to say that.) The crisp stock is the perfect weight, and I can't even tell you how hard it was deciding which designs to use. They are all wonderful -- some smooth, some shiny or glittered.

Winter Frolic is the perfect cartridge to pair up with these papers. I usually search through my cartridges and choose cuts from a few different ones. But this time I stuck with just Winter Frolic. It was everything I needed!

Begin with a tri-shitter card. Directions are HERE. Jayni has a helpful video and printable instructions. I recommend testing the cuts on cheap plain paper if you've never done one of these before. But seriously, it's very easy. I like to add a personalized message, prepared on my computer and placed on the back of the card.
Happy Cardmaking!

  1. Hi Grace, thank you so much for yoru sweet comments and for becoming a follower of my blog. I've just been cruising through yours and it's just lovely. I especially love this tri-shutter card - reminded me that I haven't made one in a long time and wonder if I still have the directions lol. The followers part of the blog is not working at the moment, but I'll check back soon and become a follower too :)
