The card I have to share today the third card from the one sheet technique I showed on Thursday.  This time I made a “Z” Fun Fold using the third quarter of the sheet.  It still includes all of the same products and colors.


Stampin' Up!, Joy of Noel, Joy of Christmas, Rocking Horse, Very Best Occasions, Jackie Beers


The card actually is equal borders all around.  I did not realize that it was not laying totally flat until I needed to get this post ready!  Sorry!!  And here is the open view.




The technique is more difficult to see on this card.  I was not strategic and even on my shading of the Balmy Blue cross I made on the full sheet of Basic White card stock.  So this piece is much lighter around the two edges where the shading is.  And light sections are hard to see in photos.  Please trust me that there is Balmy Blue shading on the right side and a bit across the bottom right corner.  If you missed yesterday’s post for all I did, you can view it HERE


The card base is Poppy Parade that is cut 11 X 4 1/4 and scored at 5 1/2.  It is also scored at 2 7/8 with this short section folded backward to be the top layer.  The DSP is cut 5 1/4 X 4 with the stamped layer at 3 3/4 X 5.  They are layered together and then adhered to only that top folded back layer.  This gives the “Z” Fold.


The front image is from the Joy of Noel stamp set.  I love this image for it’s beauty, but it is a quick one to color as well.  The front sentiment is from the Rocking Horse stamp set.  This set is still available, but sadly the dies are gone.  I love the Joy in the sentiment as it goes along with the Joy in the main set and the paper.  And the inside sentiment, which you get a sneak peek at in the open view,  is from the Very Best Occasions stamp set.  This is a great set for all times of the year.

Papers and colors

The papers and coloring are the same as the other two card from yesterday also.  They are a card base of Poppy Parade, with a layer of DSP from the Joy of Christmas Designer Series Paper.  This paper was very popular and sold out already.  But any Christmas paper will do.

The image is colored using Stampin’ Blends.  They are Mossy Meadow for the holly, Old Olive for the leaves, and Shaded Spruce for the piece of Fir showing.  And the berries are Poppy Parade to match the card base.  I chose it as a brighter red.

The ribbon is from the upcoming January – April Mini Catalog.  It is Sweet Sorbet Bordered Ribbon.  I love the width and the edge of White.

Thank you for stopping in today!  I hope you have a great weekend!  The final card in this series will be shared on Monday!
