Stampin' Up! Festive Farmhoue Bundle Under The Mistletoe DSP handmade Christmas card using a fancy fold with an ordinary framelit with video by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I chose to use the Farmhouse Christmas bundle to create this fancy fold card.  The farmhouse framelit, from the Farmhouse Framelit Dies, was used as my main image and fancy fold part of the card. Over the years Stampin’ Up! has sold various fancy fold thinlits that specifically do a fold similar to this, but I do it a different was using an ordinary framelit.

This card starts with a basic card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  I then scored the card at 2 1/8″, down an inch from the top and up an inch from the bottom (not scoring in the middle).  Then I centered the farmhouse framelit over this 2 1/8″ spot on the Big Shot.  I placed the top big shot plate over the 1/2 of the die I wanted it to cut, and not over the part I did not want cut.  (You can see how I did this in the FB live video below). On the far left side (where the die did not cut), I glued a 1 7/8″ x 4″ piece of Under the Mistletoe DSP with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the interior of the card I used a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS. I used Stampin’ Write markers to ink up the stamps for the sentiments, from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set. The Merry Christmas, I colored in Shaded Spruce ink and the “from our house to yours” in Old Olive ink. A 1/2″ x 4″ strip of DSP glued to the right side with snail adhesive helped the inside match the outside.

I then stamped the farmhouse, from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set in Memento Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS approx. 2 1/2″ x 2 1/4″. I colored the roof with Basic Black Stampin’ Blends combo pack. The shutters were colored with Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends combo pack. I colored the door with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends combo pack. The windows were colored with the light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends to give the appearance of lights on inside the house.

The farmhouse was then glued over the top of the cutout of the right side of the farmhouse and over the DSP on the left. This a top view of the card, showing how the fancy fold on this card works.

This is how the card looks fully open.  I hope you enjoy this card and give it a try.  I have included a Facebook Live video (that has been uploaded to my YouTube channel) showing how I made this card.
