Christmas Greetings

Hello friends! Today I have a tutorial for you to make a quick hinged card using some fun stamps and paper tape!
I started with a piece of buff ivory cardstock trimmed to 4.25 x 5.5 and covered it with strips of paper tape. Trim the excess tape with scissors.
I cut a circle from the buff ivory cardstock and a coordinating scalloped circle from some patterned paper. I then stamped some foliage images; once in green that will be the background image, and others in dark brown which I cut out and popped up using foam squares. I attached the two circles together and attached them to the taped base using a Christmas decorative brad. I cut a smaller circle from the buff ivory and stamped it with the Christmas greeting which is revealed when the larger circle is rotated.This is a fun and easy way to change up your "normal" folded cards that could even be sent as postcards simply by addressing the back!

Supplies: Stamps - Festive Foliage, Compliments of the Season (WMS), Paper Tape (7 Gypsies), Cardstock - Buff Ivory (TKO), Ink - Chocolate Chip, Old Olive (SU!), Cuttlebug, Dies (Spellbinders), Brad (TKO), DP (Anna Griffin), Foam Squares
