Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop – Fun Folds

Oct 15, 2016 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

Welcome to our monthly blog hop – this month we are sharing Fun Folds! My card uses a basic gate fold,  and features the Father Christmas stamp set. I loved this stamp set from the moment I first saw it – and this is actually the first time I inked it up!

I started with a gate fold card – the base is 8 1/2″  x  5 1/2″  scored at  2 1/8″ from both ends.

I added crumb cake panels – cut 2″ x 5 3/8 ” – and embossed these with the gorgeous Holly embossing folder – don’t miss this – it is in our Annual Catalog!  I sponged some crumb cake ink on the embossed panels to create a vintage look – this really makes the embossed design pop! I also sponged the edges of the Santa oval, and the Candy Cane baker’s twine – to darken up the pure white a bit. 

I created a belly band to hold the card together –  1 1/4″ x 10″, scored at 3″ and 7 3/8″.

The belly band slides off to reveal the inside of the card:
