It’s fun to get off the beaten path of card making and try a fun fold, handmade greeting card. These are cards that have an unusual or unique fold or opening. There are certainly lots of options. Today, I’m showing you what’s called an “open panel” card. Be sure to watch the video below to see exactly how I create this card. In the video, I give the card dimensions, paper measurements, and demonstrate the two-step stamping technique.
Trimming the Tree Open Panel Card
This card features the Trimming the Tree Stamp Set and the Tree Trimmings Dies. Buy them as a bundle and save 10 percent. Look for the stamp set in Stampin’ Up!’s 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. It’s available through May 1, 2023. The coordinating die cuts, however, are a limited-time offering — available only through September 30, 2022. It’s part of the Perfect Partners promotion. See the chart below.
These dies offer fun and creative ways to not only die cut the tree but to also decorate the tree images — from bows to ornaments and more. I also used the Festive Foils Designer Series Paper.
