Friday Fun Fold for Christmas-Sweetest Time Stampin’ Up!®

Welcome to Friday! Boy this week seemed to go fast! I have a Christmas Fun Fold for you today.

This Fun Fold Box card is flat for mailing, but when opened stands up as a box dressed up as a Christmas present. The sentiment and holly are from the Sweetest Time stamp set and Sweetest Borders Dies.

Measurements: Shaded Spruce Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 9 inches scored with the 9 1/2 inch side up top at 2 1/8 inches, 4 1/4 inches, 6 3/8 inches and 8 1/2 inches, two 1/2 inch circles (1 1/2 Circle Punch) scored in the center and a stitched oval die cut (Stitched Shapes Dies largest oval); Real Red CS: four at 1 7/8 x 5 1/4 inches and a scalloped oval die cut (Layering Oval Dies 3rd largest); Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (DSP): four at 1 5/8 x 5 inches; and Whisper White CS: two at 1 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches, 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches and a stitched oval (Stitched Shapes Dies 2nd largest stitched oval).

Stamp the sentiment “for you with Christmas cheer” on the Whisper White CS stitched oval die cut in Real Red ink. On the 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch Whisper White CS stamp the berries in Real Red and the holly leaves in Shaded Spruce ink. Remember to use your Stampin’ Pierce Mat so you get the best image with the Photopolymer stamps.

Adhere the Plaid Tidings DSP to the 1 7/8 x 5 1/4 inch Real Red CS.

On two of the Real Red CS/Plaid Tidings panels, adhere the two 1 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch Whisper White CS card pieces as shown. This will be the “back” of the card where you would write your message. It will make more sense once you put everything together.

On another Real Red/Plaid Tidings panel, wrap the Real Red Braided Linen Trim around 3 times as shown. Tie a bow with 2 strands and adhere to the top with Mini Glue Dots. Tip: Sometimes the Glue Dots do not hold the bow so I add a little drop of the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue under the bow.

On the back of the Shaded Spruce CS stitched oval die cut, adhere the scored 1 1/2 inch circles by folding the circle in half, adhering 1/2 of each circle and having them meet in the middle.

Adhere the sentiment “for you with Christmas cheer” to the Real Red scalloped oval die cut. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the Shaded Spruce CS stitched scalloped oval die cut.

Fussy cut the holly leaves and berries with Paper Snips. Adhere to the sentiment label. Tie another 2 strand bow with the Real Red Braided Linen Trim and adhere to the sentiment label.

Use your Bone Folder to fold all of the score lines on the Shaded Spruce CS card piece.

With the 1/2 inch panel on the right, adhere all of the Real Red/Plaid Tidings panels as shown.

Here is where we will attach the sentiment panel to the middle of the card front with the two folded 1 1/2 inch circles. Glue the circles on the back of the sentiment panel, still folded, side-by-side along the center line.

Turn the whole card over with the 1/2 inch panel on the left. Apply adhesive to the 1/2 inch panel and fold over to adhere to the opposite side.

You should be able to pop the box open as shown.

Viola! You have a super fun Fun Fold Christmas card that mails flat but looks like a present when opened!

I am so glad you stopped by today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and are able to spend time crafting.

Kylie’s Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- November 2020-So Sentimental

Thank you for joining me for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! I am so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop to get ideas and creative inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and reach some goals we have set. I really appreciate your support.

You may be starting here at Theresa’s Treasures or have come from another blog – either way you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today. Enjoy!

The theme for the cards today is: Thank You. I have many customers who support me and I like to send out a Thank You card every once in awhile. The following set of cards is for my awesome customers.

I must admit that I was not a fan of any plaid. However, I really like the plaid in the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. I used the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder to make the Whisper White card stock background.

Tip for arthritic hands: I have a difficult time with the Stampin’ Dimensionals due to mobility problems from arthritic changes in my fingers. I found that if I cut the Foam Adhesive Sheets into 1/4 inch strips I can use them on the back of labels and such. This is so much easier to peel off than those hexagonal Dimensionals!

The sentiment “I Can’t Thank You Enough” is from the So Sentimental stamp set. The dies are from Stitched So Sweetly. I hand-colored the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to match the color of the card stock. Be sure to heat set, otherwise you get very inky fingers!

I have the cards open in two different ways to add variety to the Thank You notes.

“I can’t thank you enough” for stopping by today.
