December Challenge - Christmas with Traditional Colors (Red,Green and White)

Hello everyone!
How are you all doing? First of all,Let me thank all of you those who participated in our November Challenge - OUT OF THE BOX. We loved see you returning over and again sharing your gorgeous projects. Hope you all enjoyed creating something unique than your signature style. 

And now onto the December Challenge - Christmas in traditional colors i.e the Red,Green and white combo... But the twist is No CAS... It can be a 3D,Box,Fancy folds..anything else other than a single layer CAS. 

And here is my take on the current challenge - A Star Christmas Card 



I have a simple tutorial on how I did that... 

I used a 30cm by 30cm square cardstock. Find the centre (15cm) on opposite sides of the square and make a mark . 
From the bottom right hand corner, measure 30cms to the centre line at the top. Repeat this with the bottom left hand corner.
You now have a triangle that is 30cms on all sides. Cut the triangle. 
Hope the picture explains it better. 






Now, find the centre point on all three sides of the triangle and join these points. 

For the next set of score lines, make a mark at the point that is 1/6th of the length of the side of the main triangle. HEre 1/6th is 5cm.. so I marked at a point that is 5cm on all the sides from the edge.. that is from the pointed sides of the triangle. Now join them. 


Score and fold along all the lines.. The inner triangle lines are valley fold and the outer ones are mountain fold. 

Fold and close the card overlapping each point of the star to make it a star. 

And it is ready to embellish it pattern papers and we are done. 


Hope you all liked it.
