A Christmas Storybook Card!

Hello Friends!

I have busy in the Craft Room!

Today’s Cards is a Storybook Card!

I visit a blog in the UK, named Pootles!

Sam Hammond is a Stampin’Up! Demonstrator in the UK!

Sam showed on her blog the other day, a Christmas ‘book’!

I watched her video, and figured out the Imperial measurements!

Sam usually has the conversion, but this time she didn’t.

A link will be at the end of this Post!

Here is the First of Three Storybooks, I made!

A Christmas Book!

The Cover!

Page 4 and inside back cover


Cute! Isn’t it?



Garden Green-  a regular A2 card base, 5.8″ x 5.5″ score @ 4.25″ fold in half on the score (this is the cover)

Very Vanilla Cardstock- 5.25″ x 11″ Score @ 4, 4.75″, 5.5″, 6.25″, 7″ front and back inside cover and folds for the pages, fold and burnish the concertina folds. Adhere the first side to the front inside cover. Adhere the second side to the Card Base. the middle concertina folds will look like they are loose. It’s ok!

Garden Green- 4 pieces cut to 4″ x 5.25″ (Pages 1,2,3,4)

Cardstock-Adhere the first Garden Green 4″ x 5.25″ Cardstock to the front of the first concertina fold.  Adhere the second Garden Green 4″ x 5.25″ cardstock to the back of that fold. Do the same with the other two Garden Green, on the second concertina fold  (use tear & tape) You will have 2 pages with a front and back!

 DSP: Christmas Toile- Cut 4 pieces cut 3.75″ x 5″ adhere to the four Garden Green pages.

I finished the pages as follows:

Inside front cover- Garden Green mat, 3.5″ x4.25″

Page 1- just the DSP- 3.75″ x 5″

Page 2- DSP, 3.75″ x 5″  Very Vanilla- 3.5″ x 4.75″

Page 3- DSP only, 3.75″ x 5″

Page 4- DSP, 3.75″ x 5″ Very Vanilla- 3.5″ x 4.75″

Inside back cover- Garden Green mat, 3.5″ x 4.25″  Very Vanilla- 3.25″ x 4.5″

Back Cover is plain…you can decorate if you want to!

What you need to remember:

As you go smaller for mats and such, just keep reducing the sizes by .25″                             (a quarter of an inch)

Here is the booklet again!



I am worked on a couple more…I will Post as they are completed!
