Griswold's Christmas

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends,

It is Pam sharing with you on the blog this great Thursday morning.

I don't know about you but I think one of the funniest movies I have ever seen is Christmas Vacation!  This little station wagon brings me right to the scene in the movie when the Griswold's went out to get their Christmas tree! I decided to do a fun fold card with this fun die.


Design Steps

1.  Use the second from the largest Stitched Scallop Circle die and cut a red circle.  Use the second from the largest Pierced Circle die and cut out a DP blue circle
2.  Cut a piece of white card stock 7 x 3 1/2 and fold in half
3.  Glue the blue dotted DP to the red scalloped circle then mount onto the small card front
4.  Cut some red card stock 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 and 2 pieces 4 1/8 x 2 5/8. Cut green DP 4 x 5 1/4 and patterned DP 4 x 2 1/2.  Cut a white 11 x 4 1/2 fold in half placing the fold at the bottom of the card then cut the front flap in half
5.  Glue the large piece red card stock to the inside of the card and the two smaller pieces of red go on the outside of the front flap and the inside of the front flap.  Glue the green pattern paper to the inside of the card and the pattern paper to the front of the outside flap

6.  Cut all the pieces using the Griswold Wagon and green, black, brown, red, green and vellum.  Assemble the car with a fine tip glue

7.  Glue the small card to the green inside of the card folding the front flap under the flap of the smaller card. Open up the small white card and stamp the sentiment. I added a small strip of DP for added decoration

8.   Add some white snow to the blue dotted DP on the circle and then pop up the car.  Add a snowflake, rhinestone and your sentiment.  I used a small Velcro dot to keep the card closed

This card is so cute Pam! It makes me laugh and brings back memories of tying Christmas trees to the top of our Honda Civic in the 90s. The trees were always bigger than the car - much like the Griswolds!
