TWO Fancy Fold Christmas Cards

Hey Guys!

On my YouTube live video from today the 10th of December, I showed you two Christmas Cards that have a Fancy Fold! I LOVE cards that have something added to them that makes them more interesting and different folds definitely make them interesting!

First, I am going to show you the one that I am absolutely over the moon happy with!!

One of my Two Christmas cards with a Fancy Fold

Did you notice that other than the fold, this card isn’t all that detailed? Furthermore you only have to stamp Two images! Even though it doesn’t take a lot of stamps, it is STUNNING! Sitting here in my stamp room, I love to look at this card! Subsequently this will have to go to someone special who will really appreciate it!

As always here are the ingredients to make this card:

  • Stamps:
  • In The Pines
  • Wrapped in Christmas
  • Inks:
  • Old Olive
  • Crumb Cake
  • Markers: Pretty Peacock & Real Red
  • Paper:
  • Pretty Peacock: 11″ x 6 1/2″, scored @ 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″ & 8 1/4″ (Landscape), Turn to portrait: Score @ 1″ on BOTH sides. Cut while in portrait Place on 1″ mark then cut from 1 1/2″ to 9 1/2″, do this cut on BOTH sides!! Place back in so it is Landscape place cardstock to 1 1/2″ and score BETWEEN the cuts, flip and do the same on other side.
  • Copper: 2 1/2″ x 7/8″ (x4), 4 3/8″ x 2 5/8″ (x2), scrap for Deer
  • Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP: 4 3/8″ x 1 3/8″ (x4….2 designs)

  • Greenery folder
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Label Me Lovely punch

Now onto the Second card in my Live YouTube video! Incidentally this one is a peek-a-boo card. As with the first card this one also uses minimal stamps. Furthermore, this card is very striking even though it doesn’t have the folds the first card has.

Coming Soon! Sneak Peek to Magical Day!

Today I am sharing with you a couple of cards that I made for my YouTube Channel.  I have a very simple fold but the cards are stunning!  You can see the video here!

While I was at OnStage in Salt Lake City in UT I got to see first hand cards that were made using this set!!  I fell in LOVE!

Here is the front of my card:

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is called Myths & Magic, it is embossed and GORGEOUS!!  ON the Video you can see how shiny and beautiful they are!

Here it is partially open:

I embossed the ‘sparkles’ on the side using Silver embossing powder.

Here is this card open all the way, isn’t it pretty!!?

I used Stampin’ Blends, and just love this card so much!!

Now, here is the other card, same design, different stamps!

I used the Myths & Magic Washi Tape on the side, isn’t it gorgeous!?

I am already planning on ordering MORE of this DSP and Washi Tape!

Card # 3 – Christmas Cards

Here is my favorite of all the cards!  I am posting this now because I have made a video for this ‘type’ of card….Easel Card.  The video is making this fold, but you can see a different card using this same fold!  You can watch it on my Technique Tuesday video series!

Here is my Christmas version!

This card design is based on a card that I swapped with Linda Wiencek!  Love the design, I did it a little different, I didn’t have everything she used.  This is called an Easel Card.  It is VERY sparkly in person!

If you are interested in getting my 7 page pdf with Instructions, dimensions and Color Photos of all 6  Christmas Cards, you only need to  purchase $50 from my Online Store and I will email it to you!  The supplies needed for this card are listed below, click on any picture to be taken to my Store!  Please use hostess code CGCDT6ZJ

As for the how-to to make the folds and cuts for this card, you can find an Easel Card on my YouTube channel, my pdf has all the dimensions for each panel!

Off to do some work with my hands, have some Cards to make!

Technique Tuesday Cascading Steps

YOU are in for a Treat!  Today I am sharing with you my latest Technique!  To see it done, go to this video on YouTube!

The reason I am so excited is because I have only seen this ONCE before about 15 years ago on a tv show and I had to remake the instructions according to what I SAW. There were no instructions anywhere!  So after about a week of trial and error, I remade the design!

Here is another view:

And from the top:

Well?  Do I have reason to be excited??!!

Want to be able to print out your own Cheat Sheet?  Well, I have written it down for you!  Click below to print your own!

cascading steps instructions

I have used this design for Palm Trees, Christmas Stockings, other flowers…….Can you think of a Stampin’ Up! stamp set that would work here?  I would LOVE to get more ideas!

Hope you enjoyed my latest technique!  I am always looking for new ideas, any techniques that you would love for me to make a video of?
