I'm Playing Elf At Christmas Kickstart Challenge

 I know it's the middle of summer (for us in the Northern Hemisphere), but I'm an ELF this month!  

It's all about Fancy Folds, all kinds of folds this month.  What kinds of folds make you happy? Pop-up, Pocket, Easel, Waterfall, Accordion, Gate, Z and the list goes on!

  Join me at Christmas Kickstart Challenge with 
any and all of your fancy folds.    

My inspiration card uses the Poppy Stamps Bird House Pop Up Easel die which made it so easy for me to quickly make this type of card.  I'm all for saving time.  My Cardinal is glittery and he was in my stash already created so I think I took some clear Wink of Stella to the torso.  I like cutting and coloring a bunch of images at the same time.

Unsure of the Joyful Wishes stamp as I had stamped the sentiment months ago
