Double Gate Fold Christmas Card

This card fold is so cool and so easy!!!
My friend Sandy posted this technique on
MFP Stamp November Blog Hop

The directions for this are very easy and instead of me going through each step here I am going to send you to Sandy's blog post HERE 
I made a little change....I cut a TINY slit in the front folds on each side to slide ribbon through and tied in the center.  To keep the ribbon from coming through the slit I just tied a knot in the end.

The tree and the presents were stamped and cut out.  I colored presents with colored pencil and used Liquid Glass on the "ribbon and bows".  The tree was stamped with White Daisy ink from CTMH  and "decorated" with Stickles.

For the top 2 pictures I had the card laying down so the light would make the Stickles and Liquid Glass show up.  Below is the card open and upright.

I'm entering this in the challenge at MFP Stamp Shop 

I hope you like the card and try it yourself.
