Stampin’ Up! Rustic Retreat Curvy Christmas for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? If you’re in the path of our latest hurricane, Zeta, I hope you are all safe with little or no damage. We’re getting the remnants of the storm here, lots of rain and some wind and tonight it’s suppose to drop to the 20’s. It might be time for me to give in and put the heat on. The weekend is upon us again and It’s Halloween, luckily it’s suppose to be nice weather for the trick or treaters. Does anyone have any plans? Does anyone dress up for Halloween? Once again I’ll be at work both days. The last day of the month and the first of the month I work no matter the day of the week.

For today’s fun fold I didn’t do this one on my Facebook live. This one is so Quick and Easy I would have been able to get 3 or 4 of them done on a video. Here’s my card for today.

I pulled out an older set from the Annual catalog for this card, the Stampin’ Up! Rustic Retreat Cling Stamp Set. I almost passed this one up if it wasn’t for my niece looking at the catalog one day and asking if I had it.. It’s really a great masculine set.

I folded and scored a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock at 4 1/4″ & 5 1/2″. I adhered the inner fold of the card together using Stampin’ Seal. This leaves the actual card front size to be 4 1/4″ X 4 1/4″

I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of the Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, around the end twice and tied a bow.

I embossed a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cabin image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I cut the image out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I curved the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Curvy Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set (available November 3rd) and stamped it along the curve of the oval in Crumb Cake Ink. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the cabin image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel, stamping off twice, in Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink over the cabin. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the cabin image from the Rustic Retreat stamp set in Crumb Cake in on the envelope front.

I adhered a panel of the Snowflake Splendor DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. What did you think? Quick and Easy? You can easily make a stack of these in no time. Happy Stamping!!
