Another Christmas in July Card


Here is another item that was made during our Christmas in July themed meeting.

I like the elegance of this card and that it looks nice folded and displayed upright.
I borrowed the folding technique from Pinterest.

Here are the materials you will need to create this card along with the item number from Stampin' Up!

 Black Cardstock 12 X 12 (#124267) this will be cut into a piece that is 12" x 5 1/2"
Whisper White Card Stock (# 100730) used for the sentiment - a strip that is 2" X 3 1/2"
You will also need a square for the Wreath that will be embossed.
Cherry Cobbler Cardstock (#119685) for bow
Bow builder Punch (#137414) 
 Heat Tool (#129053)
Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set (#135047)
Wondrous Wreath Die Cut (#135851)
These two can be purchased as a bundle to save $: #137624
Gold Embossing Powder (#109129)
 Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details (#125585)

To create your template for the folding card:
Cut a 5 1/2 x 12" strip of paper
Score lines: 2",4",8" and 10"
At short end measure up from corner 3" and connect that to the 4" score line (see video).
You will cut along this line and remove a triangular portion.
Repeat at other end marking up from corner 3" then connecting that mark to the 8" mark.
Here is a quick video.

The tutorial to make this card can be found here!
