Night Divine Slimline Box Card for the Fun Fold Blog Hop

Welcome to the Fun Folds Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!!

Hi, Stampers! We have a great blog hop of fun fold crafters today so I know you will enjoy the inspiration this month. There’s a lineup below to make it easy for you to hop along and see all of the great inspiration from other creative SU demonstrators. This fun fold is such a great one for you to try since it’s so easy to make and wonderful for a scenic card. I make it using the Night Divine Dies. I love the O Holy Night Designer Paper, so it was the perfect time to use it. The Night Divine bundle is classic and deserves a place in your holiday stash.

My Secrets!

Let’s start with the card base…

  • Firstly, I found this tutorial from Jenny’s Card Designs. I cut the card base from Crumb Cake cardstock:
    • 9-1/2″ x 4″ and scored at 1″ and 9″ (back)
    • 9-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ and scored at 1″ and 9″ (front)
    • 9″ x 1-1/2″ and scored at 1/2″ and 8-1/2″
    • To assemble the front to the back, you will use the ends together with one 1″ and one 1/2″ on each side. Next time, I think I will make the front panel with the 1″ sides and the back panel with the 1/2″ sides to make it neater. (But note that the paper sizes will change!)
    • The back panel will need to be trimmed down at the top of the score line to the 2-1/2″ mark to meet the front panel on both sides.
  • After they were cut, scored and glued together, I proceeded to add the designer paper:
    • To do the front so that the sides are continuations of the front: I cut the bottom of the DSP at 2-3/8″ then cut from the left side in the following order:
      • 7/8″
      • 6-7/8″
      • 7/8″
    • I added a panel of DSP to the middle that was 6-7/8″ x 1-1/2″ (optional)
    • Lastly, the back panel was cut at 6-7/8″ x 3,” making it shorter since it isn’t seen anyway. Feel free to add it all the way to the bottom of the panel if you’d like.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Once that was done, the fun part was cutting out the Night Divine dies in both white and CrumbCake cardstock because I wasn’t sure which ones would look best. So, I went with the white ones for the people and used a variety of Crumb Cake, white and colored a few of them with Stampin’ Blends, as well.
  • After that, I added the front figures (I cut the staff off of the white figure and glued the Crumb Cake figure behind it).
  • Then, I glued one of the camels and popped the other one with dimensionals.
  • Next, I cut a piece of Window Sheet to 4″ x 2″ and began arranging the images. This is where I decided to add the palm trees from Paradise Palms, so I stamped those and cropped them out. Then, they were added to the front and in the middle panel.

Then, on the back…

  • Once that was done, I made a panel with white cardstock (6-7/8″ x 3-7/8″).
  • After that, I stamped the sand image from Paradise Palms in Crumb Cake ink and the palm trees again in Shaded Spruce and Early Espresso inks.
  • Then, I stamped the Peace ON Earth from the Christmas Classics stamp set in Crumb Cake.
  • Finally, I thought the sun image would be fun, so I stamped that in Lemon Lolly ink to finish out the scene.

It’s so hard to get a cute photo of this little ball of energy! But he decided to take a minute on the grass. Needless to say, there was lots of fun playing with planes and chasing soccer balls at the park!
