Happy Holiday's!  It's Anita from Land Locked Island Girl Blog.  This holiday season has snuck up on me this year.  My family just made a major move from Colorado to California, so this Christmas we will be missing a lot of our normal traditions.  I usually start our Christmas cards in August and I take our family holiday picture over Thanksgiving, but we spent the past few months packing and Thanksgiving weekend driving to and moving into our new home in California, so I'm not going to be able to spend as much time on our cards this year.  I figured my Imagine would be a great way to get my cards done quickly.

I chose to use the Imagine Good Old Days cartridge and a concertina fold card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/concertinafoldcard/ .  
I print and cut the Santa in the plane at 3". 
In the middle of printing out my papers (I needed 4 different patterns), I got 3 printed and my Imagine died!!! Since I needed to coordinate papers with my Santa embellishment, I was a bit panicked as I went through my own paper stash, so the Candy Cane striped paper you will not find on the cartridge.
I trimmed the tops of the panels with glitter paper, cut with a Fiskars border punch. I used both the positive and negative parts of the punch. 
The negative looked like snow to me, so I used it on the bottoms of the front panels and the tops of the back panels.
I popped up the Santa/Plane embellishment with foam tape to close the card. And I was done making our holiday cards for 2012.

Thanks for looking at my project today. I wish everyone a wonderful Holiday and a Prosperous New Year!
