Heart of Christmas - Week 4 - 2022

 

Welcome to week 4 of the Heart of Christmas, this week I am going to bring you a fancy fold today because you know I can't help it. I have for you a double step fold card for you and it will fold up to go into our C6 envelopes.

I have used the fun, Trees for Sale and the Fun Tree Lot Dies again for my card this week. They are just so much fun to use and I thought with this double step fun fold card the would work quite well.

I have made the card the same length as our normal cards in Mossy Meadow and then folded up the step for the bottom dimension and then after adding some of the gorgeous Boughs of Holly DSP I added the second step over the top to the side. The added some more of the gorgeous DSP to add all the tree depth that we would  need for this card.

For the  decoration on the card I have cut out the trees in Evening Evergreen and put Shaded spruce over the top of the base and this week I put in the tree trunks as I worked out which die that was (LOL!) I added some dimensionals to the ones on the steps. The string of lights I have stamped in Early Espresso and then coloured in with Dark Daffodil delight stampin Blends. I have strung that across the poles from front to back to give it a but more dimension. And of course we can't forget out wonderful caravan which this week I have used my favourite Blackberry bliss as the highlight colour.

As you can see just fold up carefully the bottom towards the top and your card fits perfectly into the envelope.  Hey don't forget to add some bling to your trees and for writing your Christmas message add a piece of Basic White to the back of the card and you are good to go.
