The Paper Players 421 - Design Team Card

Jaydee's theme challenge this week at The Paper Players is very timely indeed.

It certainly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! In our family, the decorations go up on 1 December and that's what happened yesterday. Is it looking a lot like Christmas at your place too?

This year has been the year of the screen card for me. I saw one whilst sightseeing on Pinterest and I was captivated. I've made several and even included one in my Festive Fancy Folds class last weekend. Clearly, they're still on my mind as this is what turned out when I started playing around at my desk to make something for this challenge!

Peaceful Noel is still my favourite Christmas set from the current Holiday Catalogue. I love all those little foliage and berry stamps and the way they can be arranged and stamped. Plus the DSP is just glorious, with the copper accents.

One thing I really like about screen cards is the way they close up to fit inside a standard envelope, then open out like a small book.

The rest of the team at have done wonders with this theme, so why not pop over to The Paper Players and see what they've done, then play along with us.

  1. I've never made a screen card, but maybe I should Jan - this is lovely! I too am a fan of these papers and stamp set - and I love how you've decorated your inside panels. I think this would be a nice card to send someone you wanted to write an extended note to. Clever use of the label punch too for the stand. A great card!

  2. This looks like a fun card to's awesome! I just love that paper too.

  3. This is so cool, I couldn't wait to comment on it once I saw it in the gallery! I love the papers you've used and how it folds so nice and that even a word, well, you know what I mean! The inside stamping adds such a lovely touch! I am going to have to attempt one of these for my next class!
