MIM #192: Tab Closure Tri-fold Card

The busiest time of year just got busier with a call from Betsy to 
make a tri-fold card with a tab closure.
I don't think I've missed a MIM in 3 years, and wasn't about to 
miss this one!
Used card stock and stamps & dies from Tinsel & Tags,
and die cut 2 flaps from Cover Plate: Floral.
Created a shaker from Betsy's die (cut off the top flap), and already printed tag (oh so cute!),
and a double trim from Shaker Die: Circle,
in Pure Poppy & Berry Sorbet cardstock.

The card is almost square, 4 x 4 1/4", and pretty flat, so it will mail with one stamp. (Yay!)

Inside sentiment from: Instant Photo: Holidays

Betsy intended this die to be a tag with ribbon threaded through the holes.
But it's a tab on this card, and I strengthened it by doubling the die cut.
The envelope is decorated too, so easy with the sweet coordinating stamps.
I'm late with this post, but you still have a few days to play along.

Hope your holidays are full of JOY!
