Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

Fun, fun, fun...that's what's happening today at Create with Connie & Mary with our Saturday Blog Hop. We are all creating "movement cards" for the hop and I can't wait to see what my teammates have done. Here's my card:

This is called a "Decorative Corner Card". Isnt' it beautiful? If you flip it around, 
you can see the panel in the back showing you the sentiment and a place to sign:

The movement part is the portion in the front that can move when folding and unfolding.
And here's a view from the top of the card in the photo below:

The Christmas Stocking Thinlits Dies along with the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies were so perfect for the focal point of my card. I chose these dies after I chose to use the Presents & Pines Designer Paper. Instead of adding all of the step-by-step directions here, I will direct you to a video I made back in January showing you how to create one of these cards: Decorative Corner Card Fold Video
