Penny Black Saturday Challenge 28

I'm sure by now that you will all have worked out that I am addicted to Penny Black stamps, so although I have SO much to do this weekend (still haven't finished making my Christmas presents...eeek!!!), I just had to make a card for the Penny Black Challenge...especially as it's the last one of the year!
When I saw that the theme this week is 'Multi Fold', I immediately thought of making a diamond fold card, and although I wasn't going to make any more Christmas cards this year, the shape (which reminds me of a cracker) is perfect for a quick Christmas card. I've used the stamp 'Ice Dance, mounted on shapes cut with my trusty Nesties, and have used paper by DCWV (from last year's Christmas stack), and lettering cut with the 'Olivia' alphabet.

This card was really quick and simple to make...if you haven't tried this fold before, there's a fab tutorial here

As I don't need to send any more Christmas cards this year...this one is for all my blogging friends - Merry Christmas everyone!
