Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super cute fun fold card to share with you using the Christmas Scottie Bundle from the 2022 July - December Mini Catalog. If you dread making fun folds then this is going to make your day because I am going to share with a Faux Center Step Cards that will make your crafty life easier, plus I have a few other tips to share with you as well. Here's a look at the card that I have today.

I first saw this faux center step card done by UK cardmaker Sam Calcott of Mixed Up Crafts. I did link to her blog incase you want to check her out. I love her designs and she's super creative. So, anyway I had to try one of my own so I changed up the measurements for an A2 size card.

Christmas Scottie Bundle:

For my card today I used the Christmas Scottie Bundle from the July-December Mini Catalog. You can find the bundle on page 66 or I have it linked here from my Online Store as well. The Christmas Scottie Bundle includes the Christmas Scottie Stamp Set and the Scottie Dog Punch. Stamp a pack of puppies, then cut them out quickly and easily with the coordinating punch.

They're cheerful, loyal, and ready to help you send Christmas greetings! The three Scottish Terriers in the Christmas Scottie Stamp Set are eager to adorn your handmade cards and gift tags. Choose your pup, then dress it up in festive finery by stamping the bow of your choice. Giving a gift? Add a bow to the two-line image to create a little present. You can use this set for Christmas cards and tags, but it also includes sentiments you can use all year long. The punch includes two separate images: one dog and one bow to dress up your pup.

For the Faux Center Step Card I stamped the scottie dog in Tuxedo Black Ink onto some Basic White Cardstock and used the matching Scottie Dog Punch to punch him and the bow out. I attache it to the center step with Stampin' Dimensionals. I used some Painted Christmas DSP on the center of the step and the some of the plaid DSP from the Rustic Harvest DSP on the two sides and the front panel. The best part about the Faux Center Step Card design is there's no cutting of the card base and moving the card base over to cut here and there. I love the look of a Center Step card but gosh there's so much cutting and scoring it was just a pain to do. So, now I will make them more often with this design. It's so much easier.

Tips & Tricks:

Now, I also have a few tips on making your Fun Fold Cards easier for you.

  1. When you see a fun fold design that you like on the internet. Don't be afraid to make it. Grab some retired cardstock (or cheap cardstock), some retired Designer Series Paper and make it with that. Make a template. Write all the measurements on the template. That way when you want to make one you can pull out the template and have a guide to follow.

  2. Put all your templates into a shoe box. And store them all in the same place. That way all you have to do is go to your shoe box pull out your template, and you're ready to crafty that fun fold card that used to make you dread crafting.

To finish off my little Christmas fun fold card design I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels and a sentiment.
