Christmas Folding Screen Card
Greetings! Today will be my last post as a Poppystamps Design Team Member. It has been my pleasure creating for you over the past year. For my final post, I selected a folding screen card.
The folding screen card began with a piece of cardstock cut down to 5 1/2" by 11". Then I scored at 2 3/4", 5 1/2" and finally 8 1/4". Fold on the score lines so it will open as a screen.
Next I used the Poppystamps Grand Flower Box die to create the feet. I centered the window box as shown in the image below and then ran it through my Big Shot. I folded it in half so it would cut two at a time instead of running it through 4 times, I only had to do two. Additionally, I ran it through before adhering the panels on.
I cut four panels in the following sizes:
2 1/2" x 4 5/8"
2 3/8 x 4 1/4"
I chose to alternate colors but you can use all the same. The smaller of the two sizes above is approximate for the height. I had to trim off just a skosh from the bottom so there would be a border. After cutting I adhered the two colors together and then adhered them to the screen.
Next, I cut white cardstock into an 8 1/2" x 4" section and used the Poppystamps Puffy Cloud Border die to create a mask. I used the mask in various positions and sponged a turquoise color to create one big panel of sky. Once completed, I cut four sections to 2 1/8" x 4" and numbered the back so that when I reassembled it on the card, the sky would appear continuous. Then I adhered each section to the appropriate panel.
Once you have added the innermost panel, then you can decide what scene you would like to create. I kept it pretty simple using the Poppystamps Snow Flocked Tree for panels 1 and 4. Then I used Poppystamps Santa's Magic Sleigh for the panel 2 followed by both Poppystamps Woodland Fawn Dies.
To finish, I used the Merry Christmas greeting from the Poppystamps Merry Christmas Background.
To add more pizazz you could cut some small squares and tie some twine around them as presents in Santa's sleigh or add some ornaments from Poppystamps Christmas Baubles Die  or some flocking on the branches of the tree.
I hope you give the folding screen card a go for your holiday card making projects.
Thank you again for a wonderful year! Happy Holidays.
