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!
