Leaves of Holly Joy Easel Card

Friends, welcome to the first in a series of Fun Fold cards! These cards are the kind that will wow your friends and family - yet they're also fun to make and can quite easily be adapted to other stamp sets, dies, and DSP. 

In the spirit of the season, these Fun Folds will feature the beautiful Boughs of Holly Suite, including the Leaves of Holly stamp set, Holly Berry Dies, and Boughs of Holly DSP. (Le jeu d'estampes est également disponible en français.) I'll include a photo supply list at the end of this post. Just click on the item to open it in my online store.

Since making a Fun Fold card can be a little more difficult to envision, I've written up the steps in list form for clarity:

  1. Cut Thick White Cardstock to make a 4 1/4” x 11” card base. 
  2. Using the scoring tool, score on the 11” side at 5 1/2”, 6 3/4” and 6 7/8”.
  3. On the 4 1/4” edge of the 4 1/4” x 2 1/8” flap, make a pencil mark at 2 1/8”. Then cut diagonally from the pencil mark to the first fold line on each side, to make a triangle.
  4. Fold on all score lines.
  5. Fold card in half at the 5 1/2” score line. Apply glue to 1 1/4” x 4 1/4” section at centre of card and adhere to 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” section of card base. (This creates a bookbinding-style fold at the centre of the card.)
  6. Cut DSP pieces:
    1. Two pieces 1” x 4”
    2. One piece 2” x 4”
  7. Adhere a 1” x 4” piece and the 2” x 4” piece of DSP to matching areas between score lines on card front. Second 1” x 4” piece goes on the bottom of the card’s interior. Pop up this piece with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  8. Using Paper Snips, cut out a poinsettia flower from Boughs of Holly DSP.
  9. Cut a 2 3/4” Basic White square. Turn square so that it is in diamond orientation. Position poinsettia flower on diamond to see where to stamp sentiment at the top of the diamond, but do not adhere it. Stamp sentiment in Mossy Meadow Ink.
  10. Cut a 3” Mossy Meadow square. Adhere stamped square to it.
  11. Adhere poinsettia flower to Basic White Square, using dimensionals.
  12. Adhere bottom half only of diamond pieces to triangle cut-out on card.
  13. Using Mini Glue Dots, add Gold Holly Leaves as desired.
  14. Turn the flat card into a 3D one by tucking the tip of the diamond under the popped up DSP strip that was adhered to the card's interior with dimensionals.
