Around The World On Wednesday November Blog Hop Festive Paperscapes

Welcome to the Around The World On Wednesday November Blog Hop as we explore this month's theme, "Festive Paperscapes" with a specific focus on a fun celebration. Our amazing Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas using this theme to help spark your creativity. 
For my Festive Paperscape, I decided to create a fun fold design using the Storybook Gnome Suite. I recently saw a video created by fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Karen Titus, where she created a Fancy Accordian Fun Fold, and I thought it would be perfect for a Christmas card. The background designs and focal elements all come from the Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper and I used the coordinating dies from the Kindest Gnomes Bundle to die cut the toadstool house and cute little gnome. I felt like the flow of this card design told a story of a Wintery Christmas and I love the way the design coordinate.

This fun fold looks complicated but it really is quite simple to assemble and decorate. For the front panel, I layered the snowflake designer series paper onto one of the Pacific Point cardstock squares and decorated it with the die cut toadstool house and gnome. I heat embossed the sentiment with White embossing powder onto the Stitched Rectangle die cut and added some White Baker's Twine across the top to embellish it. I added the sentiment to the front panel with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. For a touch of bling, I added several Iridescent Rhinestones to the background snowflakes. I attached this front panel to the front panel of the card base with adhesive, centering it so that it leaves a border around the edge. For the second panel, I added the Balmy Blue designer series panel square to the 2nd Pacific Point square and added the fussy cut deer to the left side. I attached this panel to the inside fold with adhesive, centering it so that it lines up with the front panel. To complete the card design, I added the Basic White cardstock layer to the last panel and added the cute little fox to the bottom right corner. As you can see, this card design requires minimal stamping and the flow of the designs on each of the flap, coordinates to create a cute Winter scene that is perfect for celebrating Christmas.
