GSF September Blog Hop Fancy Fold

Welcome to the GSF September Blog Hop as we showcase Fancy Fold card designs to help inspire you. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their amazing projects and ideas using current Stampin' Up! products. 
 Today I decided to try creating a Double Easel Card and I was inspired by a design created by fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Lyssa Zwolanek. Her card design had a Fall theme but I decided to create a fun and frosty Christmas card using products from the new August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. I love the non-traditional colors in the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (item #153512) and I created my color combination from the colors used in this paper pack. To decorate this fancy fold card design, I chose to use the Warm & Toasty stamp set (item #152615) and the Snowflake Wishes stamp set (item #153444) to create this wonderful Winter themed Christmas card. 
 Products Used:
Warm & Toasty stamp set (item #152615)
Snowflake Wishes stamp set (item #153444)
Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (item #153512)
In The Woods Die Set (item #151809)

(scored at 5 1/2")
Layer 1 - 4" x 9 3/4" Thick Whisper White cardstock

Designer Series Paper - 1 piece  5" x 3 3/4", 2 pieces 2" x 3 3/4"
Stamping layers - Whisper White cardstock 2 pieces 2 1/4" x 4"
Matte layers - 1 Balmy Blue cardstock 1 piece 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" 
                       1 Highland Heather cardstock 
                       1 piece 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" 
Inside layer - Whisper White cardstock 5 1/4" x 4"
This card design is very simple to create. The background piece for the front panel was sponged using Sponge Daubers and Balmy Blue and Highland Heather Classic Ink Pads. The snow layers in the background were die cut with a die from the In The Woods Die set. I fussy cut the skating polar bear and colored both bears using Stampin' Blends Markers and softened the coloring around the edges of the bears with the Color Lifter. The combination of both stamp sets gave me a wider range of sentiments and snowflake images to decorate my card. This is such a fun design and I love this color combination.
