And now for something completely different!!

This is a new design to me - it was shown to me by my friend and SU downline, Mavis, 
when we had our get together last week.
Mavis had made a traditional Christmas Coloured card in Red Green and White,
and -yes- you've guessed it - mine had to be in contemporary colours-
plus it had to have blue in it !
So here it is - a two in one card.

Middle view with open fold

Art farty angle

Hope that the photos help to demonstrate the mechanics of this Two in one card.
The colour combo is Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizzazz and White - with a touch of Smoky Slate.
There is no stamping at all on this card - but I may stamp a greeting on the inside.
All the papers used are from the "All is Calm" Speciality Designer Series paper.
The bauble was punched using the retired Bauble punch, which I still love dearly and won't part with!
I ran this bauble through the Textured Impressions Delicate Designs Embossing folder, 
ensuring that the pattern was centred - which I managed to do quite easily (surprise surprise!)
The Silver ribbon is the only embellishment used as I think that the paper is pretty enough
without much else being added.
Thanks for showing me this different card Mavis - appreciated xx
