Leaves of Holly Merry Christmas Fun Fold Card

Friends, today's card is the second in our Fun Fold series. This card provides lots of room for additional decorating or message-writing. If you missed yesterday's Easel Card, find it here

Both cards feature the beautiful Boughs of Holly collection. (Le jeu d'estampes est également disponible en français.) I'll include a clickable photo supply list at the end of this post.


Here's how to make the card:

  1. Cut a card base from Basic White 12” x 12” Cardstock that measures 5 1/4” x 12”. 
  2. Using the scoring tool, score at 4”, 6” and 8”.
  3. Cut as follows:
    1. One piece 3 3/4” x 5” of DSP
    2. Two pieces 1 3/4” x 5” of DSP
    3. One piece 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” of Real Red Cardstock
  4. Fold card base in half and arrange so that it forms a tent shape in the middle (i.e., the flaps around the fold stand up like a tent). Fold the two end panels in toward the “tent.” (See photo below.)
  5. Adhere the two 1 3/4” x 5” pieces of DSP to the “tent.” 
  6. Flip card on its back and adhere 3 3/4” x 5” piece of DSP to the right-hand panel. (DSP already adhered will not be visible on this side of the card.)
  7. Fold card so that DSP is the front panel, with the other strips of DSP inside the card. Adhere 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” piece of Real Red Cardstock to the left-hand panel, so that there is a cardstock border visible around the card.
  8. Cut a 2” x 3 1/2” piece of Basic White Cardstock and a 2 1/4” x 3 3/4” piece of Real Red Cardstock. Adhere together.
  9. Using Holly Berry dies, cut out a holly label from Sahara Sand Cardstock and the matching holly leaves from Evening Evergreen Cardstock. 
  10. Stamp sentiment on Sahara Sand label in Real Red ink.
  11. Adhere Evening Evergreen leaves to label, then attach label to Real Red and Basic White cardstock panels. Adhere entire piece to card front using dimensionals.
  12. Add Gold Holly Leaves as desired.
