The Heart of Christmas - Week 19

Hello and welcome to another beautiful day.

Hope you have had a wonderful week.  We had such a beautiful day in Melbourne yesterday and are expecting one today as well. Spring is definitely here and so is the warmer weather which I like.

I am very much liking finding some different fancy folds to do for our Christmas cards and after using The Bethlehem Edgelits Dies last week I just had to use them again this week and do a little twist on the card we made.

So I have made a Triple Banner Standing Card and paired it with the Bethlehem Edgelits Dies and Star of Light stamp set this week.

This card has fewer pieces to cut than last week but I still think is just as effective. As you can see I have come back to my favourite copper for this card and have embossed the sentiment at the top of the card in copper embossing powder and I also used the copper foil paper. I know I can’t help myself!

 I have taken a few different shots of the card so you can get a good idea of how I put it together as well as how it stands so easily.

It folds perfectly flat to fit into the Stampin’ Up envelopes

On the back of course adding a simple decorated piece of whisper white card so that you can write your own personal message.

I have made a short video tutorial showing how to put all the layers together.

Here are all the measurements that you will need to make this Triple Panel Standing Card together:
Basic Grey base card 15 x 21 cm
On the 21cm side score at 5.1 cm (2”) and at 8 cm
Turn card around completely around so that you are still scoring on the 21cm side of the card and score at 5.1 cm (2”) and at 8 cm. I just found this easier to work out in my head to do it this way.
Fold All Score lines so that the middle is out towards you. ((mountain fold) and the other 2 folds are valley folds))
Night of Navy
Cut 3   4.8 x 14.6 cm
Cut 1    10.2 x 8.3 cm
Whisper White
Cut 1x   9.5 x 7.5 cm
Cut 1x   4.8 x 14.6 cm
Designer Series Paper of choice
Cut 3x   4.4 x 14.2 cm

On a small piece of Whisper White card stock stamp sentiment in Versamark and sprinkle with copper emboss powder and heat set with your heat tool. Cut out using your Stitched Shaped framelits. Cut the next size up in Night of Navy card stock from your Layering Oval Framelits.
Also cut a small amount of Copper foil sheet to use with the Bethlehem Edgelit dies and for your Shepherd’s and star.
To get you Shepherd to face the other way with your copper foil paper just turn the paper upside down and cut out your shepherd. Now you will have 1 facing both directions. *
Cut out 2 shepherds in Basic Black card stock as well.
When cutting out your basic black Bethlehem town make sure you don’t roll your edgelit all the way through the big shot so that it doesn’t cut it off then you will be able to lengthen it a little or a lot to suit your purposes.
