12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 10 – STYLISH CHRISTMAS BRIDGE FOLD!

Week 10 for our 12 Weeks of Christmas series.  Can you believe it?  Have you been following along over the weeks?  I hope so.  It’s been fun but I can’t believe it’s coming to the end.

Today I have a Bridge Fold card for you.

I have used the set Stylish Christmas for this which can be found in the Annual Catalogue.  Don’t forget about those great Christmas sets that are in the Annual Catalogue.

The original design for the card was from Lyssa’s blog ->HERE.

I redesigned the card to make it larger and also converted it to Metric measurements.  I will add them below.

BRIDGE FOLD CARD

** These are for the metric measurements.  For Imperial measurements, head to Lyssa’s blog post in the link above. NB:  My version is taller at 14.8cm.  You would cut your card at 5 7/8″ instead of 4 1/4″ if you want that to be the same.  Each of your strips would be longer too at about 5 3/4″. Hope that makes sense.

Base card – 14.8cm x 20.3 cm.  Score at 3.2cm, 6.3cm, 14cm and 17.2cm

Front Strips – either card or co-ordinating paper. 2 pieces measuring 2.8cm x 14.4cm.

Centre Mat – 7.3cm x 14.4cm.

Centre piece – 6.9cm x 14cm.  Whisper White.

Front Strip – 3.2cm x 14cm.

Fold the Base card.  Adhere the strips to the front.  Stamp the centre piece as you like.  Adhere on to Centre mat and adhere to the Base card in the centre.

To adhere the Front strip: Fold the left hand edge to create a z-fold.  Adhere the strip in position on the left hand piece by lining it up to the left hand edge.  Leave the Right hand folds open, adhere the right hand edge of the strip on to the right hand edge.

Decorate the card as you would like.  Have fun with it.

Thanks for stopping by,

GABLE CHRISTMAS BOX!

Here is a very quick treat box to make up for Christmas.  This one we made at my Christmas in July Class a while ago.  Yes I know that long ago and I am just sharing it now.  Sorry. 🙂

I thought you might like to see it.

These are using the Silver Gable Boxes in the Annual Catalogue.  You get 12 to a pack.  They also come White.

I diecut the red card with the Delicate Lace Edgelits. This was adhered to the front and the back of the box.   The sentiment is from the Stylish Christmas set and punch out with the Everyday Label Punch.  I punched one from Shaded Spruce too to add behind.  I tied around some of the Real Red Solid ribbon on the handle.  Too easy and they will fit a few sweet treats.

Hope you like it?  Thanks for looking.
