I have been having a TON of fun with this Bridge Card fun fold! I love how the card stands up for display but folds flat to fit in a standard envelope. The dimensions are at the bottom of this post. In yesterday's blog post I showed you a version of this fold with the Smitten Mitten bundle and the Be Merry paper, today's card is with Good Tidings and the Christmas Around The World paper!
It's hard to tell in this photo, but I used Black Rhinestones to accent the bridge – they have a lovely sparkle when you see the card in person. I LOVE this gorgeous plaid pattern from the Christmas Around the Word Designer Series Paper – remember this fantastic paper is one of the patterns on sale this month, buy 3 packs of selected papers and get the 4th for free! Check below for all of the patterns of paper that are on sale.
Isn't this stamp set lovely?! The leaves are formed by two separate stamps which is how you get the two tone colors for the leaves. I cut the greeting out with the Layering Oval dies in my Big Shot. The oval piece is popped up on Dimensionals and then attached to the bridge piece.
The card folds flat to go into a standard size envelope!
