Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’m going to share one of my heartfelt favorites that hit the retirement list … Christmas Barn. This set brings feelings of my grandparents. I also created this card using the Book Binder Fun Fold, so I will be sharing one of my demonstration videos with you. I will be sharing it with you today, along with close-ups and dimensions shared in the video. The Book Binder Fun Fold is so easy to make but gives you that special touch of fun … and it works great with any occasion!!
Besides the Fun Fold, I’ll also be highlighting the “Masking” technique. Masking allows you to create dimension on your card without the use of dimensionals and such. First, you will need to stamp the barn, once on your cardstock, I’m using Shimmery White here, and then again on a piece of scratch paper …. then cut out your barn.
Now that you have your barn cut out, use a removable adhesive to attach your cut barn onto your stamped barn. Now you can stamp your trees around the barn … Remove your mask and it looks like the trees are behind your barn!! Now you can color your barn as desired. Now onto the Fun Fold Directions …..
Let’s take a look at the video and then I will share the measurements for the card…
So cute and easy … right! One piece of cardstock, two score lines and some adhesive and you can create the Book Binder Fun Fold. This bundle makes it easy to stamp and die cut your way to “sweet” Christmas cards and treats!
- Card Base: 11″ x 4-1/4″ then score at 5-1/2″ and 6-3/4″ … the adhesive goes between the 5-1/2″ and 6-3/4″ score lines to create the “binder”.
- Real Red Mat: 4″ x 4″
- Designer Paper or White (for inside): 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″
- Binder Designer Paper: 4″ x 1″
The layout to this card is so simple that you can use it for any occasion … I’ll share more with you later.
In the Sweet Candy Cane bundle I showed you that one little die that creates a little “wrap” for candy canes but I wanted to share what else you could use them for … non-candy treats / gifts!!
Talk about a quick and easy little gift to give … and inexpensive. I used scrap pieces to cut my little wraps out and the pencils were from the $$tore! I think there are about 8 pencils in each pack, and they always have them for special occasions.
I hope you enjoyed the two cards highlighting the fun fold and the little treat wraps today.
Thank you so much for joining me today, and to those who watched me LIVE last night.
Have an amazing Wednesday ~
Here are the supplies that I used to create today’s Book Binder Fun Fold. If you do not have a demonstrator, I’d be happy to serve your stamping needs. Thank you.
