The Spot Challenge #127 - Fun Fold Card Challenge Time!

 Hi There!  I hope your week is off to a great start.  I had a long Holiday weekend with Monday's Labor Day Holiday.  I always love long weekends!  I waited until the last minute to make my Design Team Card for The Spot Challenge.  Why do I do that?  I do love the challenge though... it's a Fun Fold Challenge!  

So It says pick your favorite fun fold.. I don't know that I have a favorite.  The one I used today is sometimes called a joy fold or a flip fold.  

Here's a look at the inside..

Here are the measurements for this card:

Misty Moonlight Card Base:  4 1/4 x 8 3/4" scored at 5 1/2" 
Old Olive Panel layer : 3 1/4 x 4 1/2"
Whisper White layer 3" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" 
Trimming The Town DSP 3" x 4" for the front left side and 2 3/4" x 4" for the front right flap
Stamp Sets Front sentiment:  Tree Angle 
Stamp Set for Inside Sentiments:  Itty Bitty Christmas
Dies:  Layering Oval Dies and Stitched Shape Dies  

I totally cheated and used the Houses and Trees from the Trimming The Town DSP for this card.   It just seemed silly to stamp and color the houses and trees when I could just cut directly from the DSP..... right?  Even though the dies coordinate with the DSP images, I just fussy cut them since they are super easy shapes with straight lines, etc.  When I decided to use the ovals, I pulled out my brand new Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine and let me tell you, it is SWEET!  It was so easy to run through and it cut beautifully!  I'm so excited.  I can't believe I waited this long to use it!  I was late to the party with the Trimming The Town Suite and it is absolutely beautiful!  I'm so glad I jumped on board that train!  A link to my supplies are listed below in case you are interested.  

Have a wonderful day!  Blessings, Tina
