Happy Thursday folks! My goodness it has been HOT lately. Ugh – makes it hard to breathe. Thank goodness for air conditioning! I grew up without it and remember the lethargy that set in with the heat. Now there is no excuse 🙂
Today’s card is pretty easy for a fun fold – and it’s called a side step. When you see the card, the name fits it perfectly.
- We start with a card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.
- Place the paper in the paper trimmer(portrait style) at 2 1/2″. With the short side at the top and over to 2 1/2″, cut from 2 1/8″ to 7 5/8″
- Turn the paper counterclockwise (left), place it at 2 1/8″ and score to the cut line at 2 1/8, 4 1/4, 5 1/2, 6 3/4, 7 5/8.
- Gently fold each score line and burnish so it looks like the photo below
Now decorate 🤩 My card base is Pear Pizzazz. The next layer is Mossy Meadow. The DSP is Heartwarming Hugs which is a carryover DSP. I used the Mountain Die to die cut two large trees: one in Pear Pizzazz and one in Basic White and layered them together slightly offset. They are adhered to the card front with mini dimensionals cut in half. The sentiment is from Christmas To Remember stamp set, stamped in Real Red on a Basic White scrap and fussy cut. I adhered it in place with mini dimensionals. For the two additional side panels I stamped the trees from Mountain Air stamp set: Pear Pizzazz ink on the Basic White panel & Mossy Meadow ink on the Pear Pizzazz piece. They were die cut with the Majestic Mountain Dies. The panel with double & single trees has a Basic White piece that I die cut with one of the Majestic Mountain dies to make it look as though there was snow on the ground. And you can see I cut it into usable lengths. I adhered one of the strips with liquid glue, then the single tree over it. The double trees were placed on dimensionals then the white strip added with liquid glue. For the back step, I stamped the trees in Pear Pizzazz ink on a Basic White piece, then stamped it the other way to make it appear as though it were a shadow. (This wasn’t exactly mirror stamping!) Again I die cut this piece with the Majestic Mountain Dies and adhered in place with liquid glue. The trees were added with dimensionals. For a final touch I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel and one on the tall finely die cut tree. And the card is done. Love this!!! Such an easy fun fold and so many possibilities.
For the envelope, the flap got more of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP adhered with liquid glue. The front sentiment was stamped in Real Red ink using the Christmas To Remember stamp set.
Another Christmas card ~ whew… more to do of course, but I really like how this turned out.
