Hello G45ers!

 Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!  We hope you are spending the day filled with love, creativity, and treats.  Today we wanted to share an extra special does of holiday cheer with this fabulous card featuring our Winter Wonderland collection, from talented G45 Brand Ambassador, Einat Kessler.  Along with the Square Fold card we are sharing three #SimplyG45 craft ideas, be sure to check all four projects out and take time this holiday season to express your creativity.  


Folded Squares Card

By Einat Kessler


“Hi dear crafty friends! Einat Kessler here with a new project. Today I’m sharing a really cool, but easy fancy fold Christmas card.


I created this card with the Winter Wonderland paper collection, which I absolutely love! I don’t celebrate Christmas, being Jewish… so this is the type of paper collection I can really relate too. It’s full of winter images, snow and beautiful greenery but it has such a warm feeling. Makes me want to have some tea every time I see it :)



The card looks kind of simple on the outside but when you open it...WOW! It opens up into a really beautiful and impressive inside!


The inside is colorful and has some fussy cutting images on it. I also made sure to leave one square with a solid color for a hand written blessing.



Tip #1: All of G45 papers have beautiful images on them. Don’t be afraid to cut them into pieces and create your own image!


Tip #2: When creating a card make sure to create it in a size that can fit into an envelope so you’ll be able to send it to someone special.

  1. Start with a piece of white cardstock measuring 8 3/4" X 9 1/4".

  2. On the long side you will score it at 1 3/4", 3.5, 5 1/4", 7” and 8 3/4".

  3. On the short side the score lines have to be as follows: 1 3/4", 3.5, 5 1/4", 7”.

  4. Once ready, cut according to what you see in the picture.

The rest of the process is all about embellishing and having a creative fun.

We hope you have enjoyed all four of these fun #simplyg45 ideas.  Big thanks to all of our Brand Ambassadors for sharing their wonderful ideas all year round, and for you for your support.  We wish you a Merry Christmas to your family from ours!

the square fold card is fabulous! Wish there was a tutorial. I went looking on Youtube, but I didn't find anything that looks like this one. Is there a site I can go to to learn how to make one? Thank you for any information on this...
