A Book-Fold card comes together so quickly and makes a WOW statement! Plus, the Designer Series Paper, Beary Christmas from Stampin’ Up! is adorable and does all the work for you making this card quick and easy.
- Night of Navy card stock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
- Basic White card stock 3 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ – inside
- Basic White card stock 1″ x 4″ – greeting
- Designer Series Paper 3 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
- Balmy Blue Sparkle Ribbon 6 1/2″ and another piece @ 4″
Score the Night of Navy card stock at 3 1/4″ and 4 1/4″. Fold and burnish score lines with bone folder. Wrap the 6″ piece of ribbon around the 1″ section of the card base and adhere to the inside. With a shorter piece of ribbon, tie a knot over the wrapped ribbon.
Next, I used Tear & Tape on the back of this 1″ section. After removing the adhesive backing, fold along the 4 1/4″ score line and press gently. Adhere the 3 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of DSP to the front of the card.
Using Night of Navy ink, stamp Merry Christmas on the 1″ x 4″ piece of Basic White card stock, flag the left end. Using Smokey Slate ink, stamp a small bear on the bottom right of the 3 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of Basic White card stock. To the left of the bear, stamp 1 or 2 trees in Mossy Meadow ink.
Adhere this panel to the inside of the card with your favorite adhesive. Using a sponge dauber and Night of Navy ink, gently brush along the edges of the greeting. Adhere the greeting to the front of the card with Dimensionals. Add the Festive Pearls for a bit of Glam!
