Hello All!

Thanks for peeking back today!

Today’s Challenge is from…

Inspire.Create #57


Here is the Challenge!

Inspire.Create 057

The Theme: Fancy Fold!


Here is my Card!


Looks simple…The greeting is from the Christmas Pines, retired Stamp Set!

Here’s the Fancy Fold…it’s a booklet card!


I copied this from Sam Hammond, Pootles from the UK.

Specifically bought his DSP to do the booklets!

Yes, I made, 2 each of 4 styles! This is the one I chose for the Challenge!


Inside front cover and page 1…


Stamp Sets are:

Christmas Gleaming-ornament and flourish, Peaceful Noel-sentiment


Pages 2 and 3…


Stamp Sets: Snowflake Sentiments, snowflake and Timeless Tidings, sentiment


Inside back cover and page 4!


This is where you sign and or write a personal note!

Stamp Set- Timeless Tidings, sentiment



Whisper White Thick- card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″ score @ 4.25″ fold in half on the score

Whisper White Regular- front and inside sentiment panels

front- 2.75″ x 2.75″

inside front cover and page 3- 2.5″ x 4″

inside Back Cover- 3.25″ x 4.75″

Night of Navy- mats for front and inside sentiments

front- 3″ x 3″

inside front cover and page 3- 2.75″ x 4.25″

inside back cover- 3.5″ x 5″


Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP:

large piece: 5.25″ x 11″  score @ 4″, 4.75″, 5.5″, 6.25″, and 7″

fold valley and mountain on the score lines (decide which side you want to show, then, make sure the other side shows for gluing down!)

Glue one side of the panel to the front inside cover, centered…then glue down the opposite cover, centered. The folds for the pages will be loose, you want then that way.

4 pieces for the pages…3.5″ x 5″  glue the edge of page one to the first fold. on the opposite side of the fold, glue page 2, match up the pages first, then adhere to fold. Do the same for the last 2 pages.

Glue the front panel to the front of the booklet/card (4″ x 5.25″)

I made the showing inside covers and the front cover DSP the same. I did not use them for the pages inside!

Adhere the mats to the pages as seen, and the stamp and add the greeting and sentiments to the mats!

Add any bling, and you’re done!

I used the Noble Peacock Rhinestones in Blueberry Bushel!


Here is the booklet/card again!



Closed up! Fits the medium size A2 envelopes!


The next several days will showcase the other 3 booklet cards I made!

Until the next Post…Blessings and Good Tidings to you ALL!
