Fast Fun Fold Christmas Card

I just love this card!  It is so simple and yet very striking.  I think it is the element of so much contrast that makes this one special.  This is the card that was inspired by a card sent to a colleague.  I am still waiting to get her name so that I can give her credit.  On her card the first and second card stock panels were the same size as my smaller one on this card.  I just thought it would be more interesting to get the idea of an extra layer, and hide more of the written message.  This boughs of Holly paper just keeps on giving I have yet to put together a card that I am not thrilled with. This is an easy one to make a few cards for Christmas quickly. 


Here are the Measurements and Supplies for today’s Fast Fun Fold Christmas Card:

• I used an Evening Evergreen Base measuring 4 ¼ by 5 ½”, and two mats for the sentiments 1 piece 2 ¾” Square and 1 piece 2 ¾” by 3 ¾”
• A piece of Christmas DSP I used one from Boughs of Holly 5¼” by 12, scored at 4”, 6”, 8” and 10’
• Basic White 3 pieces 3 ¾” by 5” for layering on the inside, a piece 2 ½” square and a piece 2 ½” by 3 ½”

Fall Leaves Thinking of You Card

I just love cards with fall leaves.  They are so much fun to make and often very pretty.  This one was made using two different background techniques.  On the first version for a background I used a splatter stamp in soft suede to add some texture.  On the second one I used the Painted Texture embossing folder and then used a dauber to highlight  the raised detail of the embossing folder.  I like both, but think I prefer the embossing folder background.


Here are the Measurements and Supplies for today’s Fall Thinking of You Card:

  • The Card Base is Mossy Meadow, 8 ½” by 5 ½” scored and folded at 4 ¼”
  • Next is a layer of Sahara Sand 3 ¾” by 5” run through the ‘Painted Texture Embossing Folder’
  • Then another piece of Sahara Sand 4 by 5 ¼” for layering on the inside
  • Evening Evergreen DSP from the Texture Chic paper and the Distressed Gold Specialty paper were used to die cut the leaves from the Chic dies and the Aspen leaves were cut from pieces of Basic White and colored with daubers and ink
