Peaceful Night

Hello Stampers!

As promised I have a Christmas card today using the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and Card Front Builder Thinlits Bundle (available to you August 1st). The more I play around with this bundle the more I like it. The big bold sentiments are great for those who make a lot of Christmas cards because they almost fill the front of the card. I have a church craft fair coming up the last Sunday in October and I plan to make sets of Christmas cards to sell so I’ll be working on cards that can be mass produced!

For lack of a better name I call this my Triple Fold Out card. I know I got the inspiration from another but can’t remember where I saw this.

This gives you an idea of the three fold outs. See that great sentiment for the inside? It’s hard to tell but it is stamped on a rectangular Stitches Shape. I scalloped the front panel at the top using Seasonal Layers Framelits.

I used the Card Front Builder Thinlits to design the night sky, the trees and the deer. This set is FANTASTIC!  I just hand cut Whisper White Cardstock to form the snow drifts so the trees had perspective. I brushed a bit of Craft Stampin’ Ink in Whisper White on the trees for snow.

This is an easy fold and will make your cards really stand out. The base card measures 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″ and 8 1/4″.  The Whisper White front panel measures 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ but I cut some off with the scallop die. I used scraps of Whisper White to hand cut the snow drifts. Then you decorate as you like.
