Christmas Lights Fun Fold

Christmas Lights Fun Fold

I’ve been having some fun with some “fun fold” cards inspired by Jackie Bolhuis. Today’s card features the Christmas Lights Bundle in conjunction with the Lights Aglow 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Find these on pages 30-32 of Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2022 Mini Catalog

Here are some basic measurements for this card. Be sure to watch this video to see exactly how it goes together.

  • Card Base measures 7 1/4 inches x 5 1/2 inches, score at 3 inches
  • Coordinating card stock measures 1 /2 inches x 4, score at 1 inch — this is the tab/arm for your fun fold
  • Card stock measuring 3 1/4 x 3 1/4
  • Basic card stock measuring 3 x 3. This is where you’ll add a die cut and/or stamp and sentiment. 
  • Designer Series Paper measuring 5 1/4 x 2 3/4 and 5 1/4 x 1 1/4
  • Color card stock 1/4 x 5 1/4
  • Basic White measuring 5 1/4 x 4

I love showcasing holiday cards for Christmas in July! Today’s card features the Christmas Lights Bundle. Find it on page 31 of Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. I initially purchased the coordinating Lights Aglow 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (DSP) first. It’s just gorgeous with all of its gold accents. Then, I had to have the Christmas Lights Stamps Set and Twinkling Lights Dies. Buy them as a bundle and save 10 percent $45.75 US).

  • Added a piece of 1 1/2″ x 5″ Gold Foil embossed with the snowflakes from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder duo. 
  • Heat embossed the snowflake from the stamp set and die cut with coordinating die.
