Hello folks! We had a break in temps… down 20 degrees from yesterday – now 77. Whew – so relieved. Today’s card is a fun fold and I don’t know what to call it ~ maybe you can recommend a ‘name’ for it :O)

Stampin' Up! Trees for Sale C'mas, fun fold

What do you think? Do you like a mostly white card with just a bit of color? I have to say, I do. I find it rather elegant. And this fun DSP … it’s FREE during Sale-a-bration with a purchase of $50 worth of product. It’s 6×6 paper and is in gold & silver, stripes & dots. And the other elements of this card: trees & stars are die cuts from the Tree Lot Dies – also FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $100 purchase. It’s so neat that it coordinates with the Trees For Sale stamp set in the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs, reach out to me. I can help you with that! Back to how to do this card.

  • Card base is Thick Basic White: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, covered with the Gold & Silver Sale-a-bration DSP, silver stripe
  • Cut a Thick Basic White: 5 1/2 x 7 12, score on long side @ 1 5/8, 2 1/2, 4 3/4, 5 7/8
  • Cut panels of the Gold & Silver DSP, silver dots: 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 (cut 2), 7/8 x 5 1/4 (cut 2) adhere to appropriate folded panels
  • Cut Basic White: 2 1/8 x 5 1/4 for middle panel
  • Die cut with Tree Lot Dies & Thick Basic White card stock at least 5 trees. Note there are 2 small and 3 larger trees, including the intricate dies that coordinate. Adhere as shown with liquid glue for larger trees and dimensionals on the small ones. Of course, the tree intricate dies are added with liquid glue to the trees first!
  • Die cut stars from Silver foil using the Tree Lot Dies. I added 5 to my card with dabs of liquid glue
  • Now let’s create the center panel…
    • Stamp the dog on Thick Basic White with Gray Granite ink. Die cut with the Tree Lot Dies.
    • Die cut a bow with Real Red card stock and add to dog with a dab of liquid glue. Add to the thin panel with liquid glue
    • Stamp the ‘sign’ in Garden Green ink
    • Stamp the dog prints in Memento Black ink
  • Add panel to the fun fold center with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Trees For Sale stamp set on the Basic White strip in VersaMark ink, sprinkle with Silver Embossing Powder, heat set with the Heat Tool. Add to the left portion of the folded panel – glue only the left side so that the strip is evenly on the folded flat front.
  • Add three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the sentiment panel
  • Add the folded panel to the DSP covered card base, centering it in place

  • This is what the card looks like viewed from the top ~ see how the folded piece is centered?

For the envelope, more of the Gold & Silver 6×6 DSP FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase. It is adhered to the envelope flap and a strip added to the bottom of the envelope front. You can just barely see the stripe of the same DSP on the card ends in this photo – but it’s there!
