Share It Sunday November Blog Hop

Welcome to the Share It Sunday November Blog Hop as we share what projects we have been creating. Our Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas and hopefully you will see something that will inspire you to get creative and play with paper, stamps and ink to create your own wonderful projects.
Lately I have been working on Christmas cards and projects for the holidays. I recently had my first in person card class at my studio and we had so much fun creating the card I am going to share with you today. I love sharing how to create simple fun fold designs and this Book Binding Fun Fold is easy to create and has so many wonderful options for decorating to personalize it for any occasion. I chose to use the beautiful Winter Meadow Designer Series Paper as a pretty non-traditional color option for Christmas.

The Book Binding Fun Fold is simple to create and is a wonderful way to step up your cards. I chose to use one of the designs from the Winter Meadow Designer Series Paper and used both sides to decorate the front panels. For the side strip, I used the Blueberry Bushel design and for the main panel, I chose the pretty print that coordinates perfectly. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with White embossing powder onto Blueberry Bushel cardstock and punched out with the 2 3/8" Circle Punch. To create the "spine" of the book fold, I added 2 strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive on either side of the narrow panel of the card base and then added a piece of Iridescent Ribbon and tied a knot on the front. I then removed the backing from the adhesive strips and adhered it down to create the binding for the card design. For the inside panel, I stamped the small berry branch twice and colored the berries with Blueberry Bushel Classic ink using a Blender Pen. To finish off the design, I added Silver Festive Pearls for a touch of bling.
