Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop! Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Fun Folds! Be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!
I went back to one of my fave fun folds for this challenge – the Faux Side-Step fun fold! And I decorated it up for Christmas with the Trucking Along bundle and One Horse Open Sleigh DSP – BOTH are Online Exclusive products. Take a look-see:
I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8″ piece of Early cardstock that, using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool, I scored along the long side at 3″, 6″ and 7″. I folded the scored lines as a mountain (3″), valley (6″) and mountain (7″). This is the main card base.
Then I scored a 3″ x 6″ piece of Early Espresso cardstock at 4 1/4″ – and folded it as a mountain. That’s the side-step panel.
On the right side of a piece of One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP, I stamped the Trucking Along sentiment in Pebbled Path ink. I inked part of the sentiment and stamped it, then inked the second part and stamped it underneath.
Then I matted it on Pebbled Path cardstock and adhered it to the larger front panel of the main card base.
I matted a narrow strip of a different design and adhered it to the narrow panel on the front of the main card base.
For the smaller front panel – the larger piece of the folded 3″ x 6″ Early Espresso, I cut a piece of the One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP – keeping the sweet little deer mostly centered. I cut him out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel (with the hole cut out) onto a piece of Pebbled Path cardstock and then to the front of the side-fold piece.
I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the punched out deer to a Pebbled Path Stylish Shapes die cut circle – and then adhered it back in place on the small panel using Liquid Glue – lining up the trees.
Now – to make the truck! I stamped the truck image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a piece of Basic White cardstock and again on a piece of Real Red One Horse Open Sleigh DSP. On the Basic White image, I stamped the tire-fill image from the stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
I used the Trucking Along Builder Punch to punch out the Basic White image – and Paper Snips to cut out the DSP image (on that one – I did NOT include the tires.).
Using Stampin’ Dimensionals – I adhered the fussy cut DSP truck over the Basic White truck.
I stamped the image again on a piece of Basic White – and used Paper Snips to cut out just the window.
I adhered the fussy cut window in place on the DSP truck using Liquid Glue.
On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the palm tree image in Tuxedo Black and used the palm fill image to stamp in stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow. I used a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker to color the trunk. Using Real Red, Azure Afternoon and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends – I colored the surf board and life preserver ring. And then…I fussy cut the image! 😳
Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the die cut palm image “into” the back of the truck.
I added some white Adhesive-backed Snowflakes (an Online Exclusive embellishment!) here and there. In the center of each snowflake, I put a little drop of Copper Metallic Enamel Effects.
When the Enamel Effects was completely dry, I used Liquid Glue on the bottom of the back of the side-step panel to adhere it to the front of the card base – lining up the bottom edges.
I closed the card and then used Liquid Glue to adhere the smaller end of the panel to the back of the larger card base.
I stamp the “ground” image on the front of the card – crossing the “boundary” between the side-step panel and the narrow front panel. I used the Pebbled Path Stampin’ Write Marker to fill in “gaps”.
Then I adhered the assembled truck to the card front with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done.
For the back, I stamped a second sentiment from the Trucking Along set in Pebbled Path on a woodgrain piece of One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP. Across the bottom I stamped the presents image in Pebbled Path ink and colored them with the Real Red, Azure Afternoon, Daffodil Delight and Boho Blue Stampin’ Blends. I adhered a white snowflake and added a drop of the Copper Enamel Effects.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pebbled Path mat and then to the back of the card (covering the “seam” of the side-step panel) and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Trucking Along presents on the front…
…and a little more woodgrain One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I do love these faux side-step cards – and the cool thing is you can move the “step” to anywhere you want it based on your card front design! For this one, I wanted the little deer from the One Horse Open Sleigh DSP “watching the Trucking Along truck trundle on by!
I hope you like!
