Accordion “TreeMendous” card

I’m working on some projects that children could do and I came up with this cute Christmas card.  I got the idea from a book called “Pop-up cards” from Sandi Genovese and I modified it for this project…

The outside is quite simple. I used the Top Note Bigz die to cut the front in Bashful Blue card stock.   I embossed it with the Perfect Polka dots folder.  I added a strip of Whisper White card stock that I tore to make a “rough edge”. I cut it with Top Note and glued in place over the blue one.  The tree and the star were cut using the Holiday Collection Framelits dies. I embossed the tree with the Fancy Fan folder and I added some dazzling diamonds.  I added dazzling diamonds on the star and the “snow” edge.  The greeting is from the “Greeting of the Season” set.  I added a Gumball Green Stitched Satin ribbon to tie a bow and keep the card closed.

The inside is even more interesting with all the Christmas trees standing up! I stamped the trees with a stamp from “Scentsational Season” in Gumball Green and added Cherry Cobbler Dazzling details. Then I glued the trees on the accordion…

To make the accordion card, I cut a 12″ x 12″  Real Red sheet down to 5-1/2″ by 12″.  Then using the Simply scored scoring tool I scored at 4″ and 8″.  Then scored every 1/2″ in between these 2 lines. I made this template with My Digital Studio…

What to do with your FREE Stitched Satin ribbon???

Have you seen that Stampin’up is offering a FREE spool of Stitched Satin ribbon with every $50 order? I want to give you some ideas of how to use this free ribbon!!! I made two cards that are a bit similar and both use the Gumball Green Stitched Ribbon in 2 different ways… I used the Holiday Collection Framelits dies for both cards.

For the first one, I used the ribbon to create a border on my card.  The best way to adhere your ribbon on the card is the Snail adhesive.  It sticks very well and it doesn’t show through.  For that card, I stamped the tree with the stamp from the Scentsational Season set. I embossed it with the Fancy Fan folder to give some texture and added some Dazzling Diamond glitters on the star and the tree.  The greeting is from Word Play. I used the Stampin’ Markers to color it so I would have more than one color on it.

Material used:

Stamp set: Word Play

CS and paper: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight.

Ink: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green Stampin’ Markers

Tools and punches: 2-1/2 in Circle punch, 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle, Big Shot, Holiday Collection Framelits dies, Fancy Fan embossing folder.

Accessories: Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin, sponge, Dazzling Diamond Glitters

For the second one, I used the Tree Framelit (from the Holiday Collection) to cut out the tree and then I used the ribbon to fill the “space” and create the branches.  To adhere my ribbon, I used the snail adhesive all around the outside edges of the tree, on the back of my paper. The ribbon adds a really nice finish to this card! I cut the star in Champagne Glimmer paper (love that paper!) with the star framelit (also in the Holiday Collection Framelits). I used the Label Collection framelits dies to cut the shape around the tree.  I added a little border made with the Polka Dot Parade DSP and the greeting is from a set in the Holiday mini-catalogue called Voeux Indémodables.

Stamp set: Voeux Indemodable

CS and paper: Gumball Green, Real Red, Perfect Polka Parade DSP, Whisper White, Early Espresso, Champagne Glimmer paper.

Holiday Mini-catalogue Examples: Scentsational Season

This is another card that uses the products from the new Holiday mini-catalogue.  This stamp set is called “Scentsational Season” and has matching Framelits dies.  I used a strip of the “Be of Good Cheer” designer series paper in the background.  The greeting is from the stamp set “Voeux Indémodables” (also available in English.)
