The card I have to share today is a fun fold with extra folds! It is a use for all of the DSP we tend to hide away. This really shows off the beauty of the paper. It also stars a wonderful new multi-season stamp set.
This card was highlighted as the star being a Multi-fold card. But I truly love this stamp set so am going to begin there. There are three stamps in the Cheers To The Season stamp set. They are all distinctive ones like this lovely Christmas stamp. There is also a wine glass with Cheers written on it, and a fall one with a maple leaf. I really like them all and they are great for quick cards.
The inside sentiment is from the Brightest Glow stamp set. It was a carryover from a previous catalog and is full of beautiful sentiments for your Christmas cards.
The star of the card in terms of paper is this 1/2 sheet of A Walk In The Forest Designer Series Paper. I cased this card from Connie Stewart. My first thought was that it used a large amount of DSP. Then I looked at my paper shelf and just laughed. You would think I was a hoarder of DSP looking at what I have stored. So I need cards like this one!!!
The layout of this card allows you to see both the front and back of the DSP. Which means you need to look carefully if you have directional paper. Mine is not so the scoring was pretty simple. I just needed to decide which paper is my inside view and score with that side facing up. ** If the paper is not directional this is not as much of a concern as you can refold the paper.
The 12 X 5 1/2 DSP is scored at 1 3/4, 4 3/4 and 7 3/4. Then fold and burnish with a mountain in the center. I always fold my valleys into mountains to make sure the score lines line up properly, then if it needs to go the opposite direction, I can then refold and burnish. Just do not burnish the first fold until you are sure of direction as not to tear the paper.
This view allows you to see the folds and the mountain in the center. I have a layer of Garden Green card stock behind the White sentiment layer. It probably should have been Cherry Cobbler like the front layer! The front layer is 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 with a 3 1/4 X 3 1/4 white layer. And you can see that it is only adhered to that front folded section.
The only thing to be careful of is your inside sentiment. Do not place it too high so that it shows when the card is closed. And with a scattering of the Festive Pearls in Red on the front panel the card is a quick finish!
