Perfectly Plaid Fun Fold and Exclusive Tutorials FREE with Purchase!

Welcome to my 12 Days of Giveaways! It’s December! And that means crunch time when it comes to preparing for the holidays! This month I am featuring the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and Pine Tree Punch. Believe me, when it comes to last minute projects, a punch gets it done (quick & easy)! This is one of my favorite bundles!

I have three different versions of a super quick fun fold Christmas card idea I made using this bundle.

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Fun Fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love fun fold cards and this “Impossible Fun Fold” is actually very easy to do and uses minimal supplies. (Great for when you need to make multiples!)

For the first card I stamped 2 of the tree stamps directly on the Whisper White cardstock piece using Shaded Spruce Ink. I stamped the third tree on Shaded Spruce cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder.  Then I punched it out with the coordinating Pine Tree Punch and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  You can add a sentiment and sign the card on the back.

For my second card I used the same tree stamp for all three trees.  I stamped two and then heat embossed the one in the middle again. I punched out all three and added a few rhinestone embellishments to the trees on the side. I love the heat embossed sentiment as well as the ribbon and bell on this one!Stampin' Up!

I love this fun fold and because I like to send photo cards to my family every year I wanted to see how it looks with a wallet size photo.

*This is not my family photo (It’s actually one of my sisters with her family). I need to get our family photo printed so I can make these cards! I love how it turned out! I make a lot of cards every year and I will be able to make multiples of these fast! You can make 4 of these card bases from 1 sheet of cardstock! I can also decorate 2 cards from each 6 x 6 piece of DSP.  With 48 sheets in the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper I’ll have plenty for all my Christmas cards!

Lighted Wreath Tutorial

Yesterday I shared a fun fold lighted wreath card using the All-Around Wreath Die and Tidings All Around Stamp set.  These are available as a bundle (Save 10%) and are so versatile for year round use! I have been making so many wreath projects and they all look so very different! Not only that, they are just plain fun and the dies are so easy to use to create! Here’s a look at the lighted fun fold card.

Stampin' Up! TIdings All Around Bundle and Christmas Bulb Builder Punch fun fold Christmas wreath card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the details if you would like to make this fun fold card…

Measurements

  • Very Vanilla card base:  4 1/2″ x 10 3/4″ scored at 3 5/8″ and 7 1/4″, 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ for sentiment
  • Mossy Meadow: 2 pieces 4″ x 4″ each to cut wreath dies
  • Old Olive: 2 pieces 4″ x 4″ each to cut wreath dies
  • Vellum: 4″ x 4″ to cut 3″ Circle Die
  • Scraps of Crushed Curry, Real Red, Pretty Peacock, Gorgeous Grape, Old Olive, and Smokey Slate to punch bulbs
  • DSP: Night Before Christmas 1 1/4″ x 4 1/2″

Directions

  • Fold and burnish score lines on card base.  Fold bottom up and top down for a trifold card.  The bottom piece is slightly smaller than the top so it closes easily.
  • Cut a solid and leaf wreath in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive. Layer the Old Olive leaf wreath on top of the solid base wreath with a few Glue Dots. Layer the Mossy Meadow leaf on top of Old Olive off setting it a little so the leaves don’t line up and the wreath looks fuller.
  • Cut a 3″ Circle using the Layering Circle Dies. Glue to the back of the wreath then add the Mossy Meadow solid wreath to give it a finished look and add depth.
  • Using the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch, center the punch along the top piece and push it in as far as it will go and punch.Tutorial to make fun fold lighted wreath - Jeanie Stark Stampin' Up!
  • Center wreath over the circle opening and adhere to the front panel with liquid glue.
  • Make a bow with Real Red Cotton Ribbon and attach to the wreath with Glue Dots.
  • Stamp tops to bulbs with Smokey slate ink on ~1/2 ” strip of Smokey Slate cardstock.  Punch with Bulb Builder Punch.
  • Punch assorted colors of cardstock with Bulb Builder Punch. Adhere tops to bulbs with Liquid Glue and adhere to wreath with Glue Dots. Add highlights with a white gel pen.
  • savingpng-3
  • Open the top of the card and fold the bottom piece up.  Center and stamp sentiment in Black ink. * You will only see this sentiment through the front of the wreath when the card is closed.  When the card is open and displayed the sentiment is actually on the bottom of the card.
  • Fold the sentiment piece down and add the strip of DSP along the edge.  Stamp greeting on Very Vanilla cardstock and layer with Real Red cardstock.  Adhere to DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals. *The popped up greeting will hold the card in place when it is displayed.  Add a battery operated tea light behind the wreath so it glows. You have plenty of space inside for a handwritten note or other sentiment.
