Today’s card stars some beautiful Designer Paper and a simple Fun Fold.  I have paired some products that may not  seem to go together.  So I hope I am showing you new possibilities.


Stampin' Up!, One Horse Open Sleigh, Seasonal Branches, Jackie Beers


Fun Fold

This is a simple Z fold that I made for a masculine birthday card.  The mix of products is not what you would think to pair at first glance.  Here is an inside view.




The gorgeous DSP is from the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper.  It is an Online Exclusive, and is available now, that pairs with a Christmas set.  When I saw this scene it made me think of a quiet walk in the woods. I have paired it with colors that were pulled from the paper itself.

The card base is Misty Moonlight that measures 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and is scored at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4.  This makes the Z fold. And the inside card is 7 X 4, folded in half.  The layers are Copper Clay, which again comes from the DSP piece.  I thought the falling leaves looked like that color and wanted to highlight the leaves.

Stamps and Inks

The stamp set is the Seasonal Branches.  This branch has stamps of leaves, flowers, etc that can be paired with it.  I chose it to match the falling leaves in the DSP.  The leaves are colored with a brighter color than the Copper Clay.  The Sweet Sorbet seemed to pop against the other colors without looking too red.  And the branch was done in Smoky Slate to match the gray of the trees in the DSP.


This card did not really need a lot as I tried to keep it simple.  The beautiful DSP is the star of the show so just a touch of bling is all that was needed.  I chose the Tinsel 4 Pack and in Lemon Lolly to highlight the glow in the DSP.
