Christmas Classics Impossible 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 so you can see all of the great inspiration from other creative SU demonstrators. I have an Impossible Card for you today, which is the second one I’ve made, and still think it’s a “miracle” fold. I’ve made two and still don’t know why it works! Then, I used the Christmas Classics Bundle and beautiful One Horse Open Sleigh designer papers and love how this card turned out!

This fun fold is such a great one for you to try since it really is easy to make and folds flat for mailing!

My Secrets!

Let’s start with the card base…

  • Firstly, I followed this Splitcoaststampers tutorial but changed the dimensions for a 5″ x 7″ card. The card size and cut lines are totally flexible, but I will share how I made mine.
  • After cutting white cardstock to 5″ x 7,” I scored the 5″ side at 2-1/2.”
  • Then, on the 7″ side, I cut at 3-1/2″ on one side of the card and cut 1-1/2″ on one side and 1-3/4.”
  • DSP Panels:
    • 2-3/8 x 1-1/4
    • 2-3/8 x 1-1/2
    • 2-3/8 x 3-1/4
    • 2-3/8 x 3-1/4
  • Image Panels:
    • Cardstock: 3-5/8 x 2-3/8 (2)
    • DSP: 3-1/2 x 2-1/4 (2)

Now, the FUN Part!

  • So, after cutting the base, you just hold one side of the card still, and flip the other side down on the score line (fold one narrow cut and the center cut down, and the half-panel cut up). Voila!
  • Then, I glued down all of the panels to the card base.
  • The fun part of this card was adding the beautiful scenic papers to the center panel, then stamping the holly leaves and cutting them out with the coordinating dies.
  • After that, I stamped the Peace ON Earth sentiment and cropped it out with the Deckled Circle die. Then, I decided to mount it on more layers of white cardstock to give it a little height but not too much.
  • Once that was done, I made a little square of white cardstock cut with the Stylish Shapes die and layered it onto top of designer paper.
  • Finally, to add a little stability to the card base, I cut a couple of stitched rectangles, cut with the same designer red designer paper and white cardstock glued together, and added some Iridescent Pearls to each side.
