The card I have to show today is a really quick and simple fun fold. This one includes the Beary Cute Bundle and the Walk In The Forest DSP. A perfect pairing for Christmas.
Here is the open view to see how simple this cute card is.
This fold is only one extra score line, a mountain and valley fold, into a wonderful card. I have shared this same fold using the Winter Meadow products previously. You can see that card HERE.
The card begins as a 4 1/4 X 11 piece of Thick White card stock. Then score at 4 and 6 3/4. The top section when folded is the smaller of the two end panels. Because the base is Basic White, I did not add additional layers to that. The top piece of DSP is cut 4 X 3 3/4 and the bottom one is 4 X 4. The middle Basic White section for you to write is 4 X 2 1/2. And the Basic White sentiment is 2 3/4 X 1 3/4. That is all you need!
To continue the quick and easy theme, this card uses very little paper. There is the card base and a couple extra pieces of Basic White. This allows the beautiful DSP to shine. I love this A Walk In The Forest Designer Series Paper. It can be seen on page 4 & 5 of the Mini Catalog. This paper is the Stampin’ Up! Making A Difference set for this catalog. I love they are doing paper in place of a stamp set. And especially when it is such versatile paper!
The Beary Cute Bundle is simply adorable! I love the bear. As I have mentioned before, it reminds me of the Coca Cola Bears from many years ago. These bears have so many possibilities. But I loved them giving a gift.
To create the scene, I used a piece of Basic White the same width as the DSP (4″ and probably 5″ tall). I left room to have some “snow” at the bottom, and stamped the sitting bear on the left side. She is stamped with Smoky Slate Ink and with an added Azure Afternoon scarf. Using my Paper Snips, I cut some wavy “snow” lines and then around the bear. The little gift and standing bear were stamped in the cut away of the snow. I colored the gift with Azure Afternoon Stampin’ Blends. The punch was used to cut the standing bear and the gift was fussy cut. They are then added to my little scene with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment layer is also from the stamp set. It is stamped using Azure Afternoon also. As is the Merry Christmas on the top DSP. I personally love to stamp on DSP. There are some who say they are afraid to make a mistake. My rules are to go for it!! And I added just the little gift to the center White section where you would sign the card.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you will give this fun fold a try. It is quick and easy, and uses very little DSP.
