I've used this fantastic rubberstamp image called Christmas Dance designed by Elisabeth Bell for Whiff of Joy. You can find this lovely little dancer with her sentiment at the Whiff of Joy online store here.
This pic shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image. I hand cut the diamond shape using the "Beyond the Edge" technique to allow her foot to hang over the edge.
Layers of K&Company Tim Coffey Holly Vine Flat glitter patterned paper with textured red and smooth metallic brown cardstock form my spring-fold card. A Memory Box Holly Vine provides a classy, leafy swirled border topped with McGill punched pine branches and handmade layered flowers. Xmas Red Stickles shimmers as berries throughout the diecut vine and her dress. A few blue jewel strips line the sentiments. Three mini jingle bells hang from a blue metallic mini clip to accent the wonderful sentiment that comes with the Christmas Dance stamp.
Here's a view of the front of my completed spring-fold card showing my use of Christmas Dance, as designed by Elisabeth Bell, on a card with "A Different Fold" . . .
I've noticed that some cardmakers glue the bottom triangle to the base of their spring-fold card for support. I prefer to use that space for adding a sentiment or a handwritten note. In that case, I adhere a 1 1/4" wide x 4 1/2" long, layered, simple swinging easel to the back for stability. See the end of this post for a look at how the swinging easel works.
This pic shows how the card looks when lying completely open and flat for a better view of the base where I've used a sentiment from Artful Legacy. A 3/8" metallic blue ribbon bow is topped by a couple of Punch Bunch holly leaf punches and layered kikyou flowers.
