The card I am sharing today is a really Fun, Fun Fold that is a tri-fold card.  Say that a few times! LOL!!  I cased this from my sweet friend Julie DiMatteo, The Paper Pixie.


Stampin' Up!, Merriest Trees, Merry bold & bright, Poppy Parade, Jackie Beers

And here is an inside view:



There are two stars of this card.  The papers and the stamps are equally wonderful.  But the paper is the beginning.  It is the Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper.  I love that you can see both sides of this great sheet.  And actually, that is what you need to make this fun fold is a double sided paper that is complimentary to each other.

The card base is a quarter sheet of Poppy Parade.  And it is also the layer behind the front focal area.  This paper would allow for any number of different card stock colors as the bases with the brightness of those lights.  I love it.


This is also a one stamp set card!  Those are my favorite and with the number of stamps used, it is surprising.  The front tree is my favorite.  Using the words to create a tree reminds me of a SU stamp from probably 20 years ago that was a larger version of this.  I added the star to insure it was recognized as a tree also.

For the inside I used the stamp that is the “definition” image for the large tree.  I thought it was just enough.  And what is stamped is not all of the tree, that would be too large for the space to include a written note.  The sentiment on the inside is also from the set.  Woohoo!


The thickness of this card is maybe a bit more that a normal card due to the multiple folds.  So I kept the bling to a minimum.  However the front tree was crying for some decorations.  The problem was solved with the Iridescent Discs.  They are flat and similar to sequins with a shine.  There are two showing and after the photo I added a third for more symmetry.
