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

Welcome to Team Stamp It’s July Blog Hop! This month, we feature Christmas in July cards and projects. Be sure to visit all of the blogs on the hop to get a host of holiday inspiration. Leave a comment on each with the hashtag #stampitcontest for a chance to win a Million Thanks Card Kit.
My card today features the Trees for Sale stamp set (page 39 of Stampin’ Up! July-December 2022 Mini Catalog) and the Tree Lot Dies . (Please note: These dies have sold out and are no longer available. However, I have a set available on my BOGO sale. Click here for details.)
I have to admit, I wasn’t going to get these dies. I’m just not a fan of little pieces. But my friend and fellow demonstrator, Ginger, sold me on the dies and the stamp set. (I think it was the puppy that sealed the deal.)
Now, I’m thinking of all the ways to use all those little pieces I was complaining about.
Note: SaleABration items are available while supplies last. So if you like these, get them sooner rather than later. Click here to see the other items available during SaleABration.
Tree Lot Dies Christmas Card
I created this card for my Christmas in July in-person card class. The participants loved it!
Hint: I applied Stampin’ Up!’s adhesive sheets to the card stock before die cutting the smaller pieces for the camper. This made it easier to assemble; we didn’t have to figure out how to get glue or tape on the tiny pieces.
I also used a piece of the Gingham Cottage 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper, available in the July-December Mini Catalog. This package boasts 48 sheets, and it’s perfect for all of your fall and holiday crafting projects.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I hope you enjoy this Christmas card, and I hope you’re inspired to start creating your own.
Please let me know if I can help in any way.

Congratulations to Kay Grover who won last month’s contest.
So, I started to play and just let my imagination roll with it. Be sure to read the entire post to see other card samples and a video that shows the samples and explains them in more detail. In the video, I reveal a Stamparatus tip to help you with background stamps.
