Star fold cards

Quick Cards Magazine - - Card School -

WHAT COULD BE more fes­tive than a star-shaped Christ­mas card? This clever lit­tle card fold of­fers the per­fect way to dis­play all your favourite yule­tide papers and top­pers, and looks so pretty hang­ing above a man­tel­piece, too! We think that star fold cards are the ideal de­sign for sur­pris­ing your loved ones, es­pe­cially as the inside of the card can be dec­o­rated with a spe­cial sea­sonal mes­sage or thought­ful greet­ing, so give them a try – they’re sure to be starstruck! And re­mem­ber, we love to see what you’ve made. Email a photo of your fes­tive star fold cards to us at let­ters@quick-cards.co.uk.
