Global Stampers November Blog Hop - Fancy Fold Christmas

Hello and welcome to our November blog hop. This month we are sharing some Fancy Fold Christmas Card ideas.

You are currently visiting me, Fiona Whitten, so if you hopped forward to here from Ann, back from Robbie or are just starting here, welcome.

You will be able to hop around all the blogs by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of this post.  I hope you enjoy our projects and please feel free to leave a comment before you hop onto Robbie.

I've opted to feature a card made using the Merry Mistletoe stamp set and the Be Merry Designer Series Paper.

There are so many different fancy folds, but I wanted to try something a little different that I'd spotted on Pinterest sometime ago. The original was by Lyssa Zwolanek and is known as a Four Fold Card.

I redesigned my card from Lyssa's tutorial to fit a standard UK envelope (C6 size), and will put a tutorial on the blog later in the week.

Please note that this is not a card that you would send using a standard 1st Class stamp - the layers mean that it will have to be mailed as a Large Letter.

Here are a couple of other photos.

There are five panels on the card and all have a piece of the Designer Series Paper on them along with a stamped image.  There was even a bit of fussy cutting going on.

You can see the four inside panels in the photo below and the front panel is in the two photos above. I deliberately added a blank Whisper White oval to the last panel so that a message can be written. Of course, you could always add another stamped image and then write a message on the back of the card.
