Fun Fold Friday with Winter Woods

I love fun folds, so much so that I signed up for a Fun Fold Swap at the last Stampin’ Up! Convention. There were 12 people in the group, so I went home with 11 new Fun Folds! This card is inspired by one from a stamper who hailed from the Netherlands. One thing I am missing this year is meeting new people from around the world at the Stampin’ Up! Onstage Convention. We are having one, but it is virtual so it will be me, myself and I attending!

This Fun Fold highlights the double-sided Regals Assortment of 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP), in this case- Shaded Spruce. And this will give you another Christmas Card to have ready this year!

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches (this is your card base), 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches; Shaded Spruce CS: 3 3/4 x 5 inches and 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches; one sheet of the Regals 6 x 6 inch DSP in Shaded Spruce; Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper: 2 bunches of leaves.

The first step in a Fun Fold card is to cut the paper. Place the Regals Shaded Spruce 6 x 6 inch DSP on your paper trimmer to cut at 5 inches. Rotate the paper and cut at 3 3/4 inches. Tip: I could never remember which of the blades was for cutting and which was for scoring. I made 12 pt labels and stuck them on the proper blades.

With the 5 inch side on top, cut down 1 1/2 inches at the 2 1/2 inch mark.

Mark the inside end of the 1 1/2 inch cut with a black marker. This will not show once the card is put together.

Gently score between the corner and the black dot on each side. Tip: Keep your pressure light so you do not accidentally tear the DSP with the Scoring Blade.

Use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold on the score lines as shown.

Now for some stamping!

Use Shaded Spruce ink to stamp the sentiment ” Thinking of you this SEASON” onto the 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch Whisper White CS. Stamp in the middle and a little toward the left side so you can punch it out. Stamping Off Technique: Stamp the evergreen tree onto your scrap paper and then stamp onto the edge of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS.

Punch the sentiment out with the Label Me Lovely Punch. Use the 2 1/4 inch Circle Punch to punch a circle from the 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch Shaded Spruce CS.

Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS with the evergreen tree stamped on it to the inside of the 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch Whisper White CS card base.

Adhere the folded Shaded Spruce DSP to the 3 3/4 x 5 inch Shaded Spruce CS. Next adhere this card piece to the front of the Whisper White CS card base. Adhere the 2 1/4 inch Shaded Spruce circle to the center of the card front.

Use a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the stems of the leaves and adhere them to the 2 1/4 inch Shaded Spruce circle.

Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and adhere it to the 2 1/4 inch Shaded Spruce circle.

Now for some Bling! The Gilded Gems are so gorgeous and shiny! The facets really make the gems sparkle!

I added 3 gems in decreasing size with the Take Your Pick tool.

Viola! You have a very easy but elegant Fun Fold winter holiday card! Add one more to your Christmas card stash!

Hello, my name is Theresa. I have 4 children and a wonderful husband of 30 years. I am a retired Family Physician. I love having time now to create and craft, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator more than 5 years and am having a blast! Not only do I get to craft, I meet new friends from all over the world! Crafting gives me something positive to do and to share with others. I love to have my monthly Zoom Card Making Classes so others can craft with me. I have so much fun creating the cards for others to make! My blog was initially geared toward the beginner stamper in order to help others get started stamping on their own at home. If you need information to get started, look for my first blogs. My more recent posts have been cards and projects for Blog Hops and challenges. Stop by to see my projects and those of folks from around the world! Add more creativity to your life today!
