Beautiful Trifold 5x7 Christmas Card | Tim Holtz Stamptember 2021 Stamp Set


Hello Everyone thank you so much for joining me!! This card was a bit of a struggle to make but in the end I think it turned out really pretty!! let's jump right in.


I really wanted to make a 5x7 trifold card and wasn't really sure how to make that happen so there were some stumbles in this card, I won't bore you with the details in the blog post but if you want to hear more about the challenges of this card coming together please check out the video below. I started by cutting a 5x7 card base which is going to act as my base and the second panel in my trifold. I also cut down a 1 inch strip of cardstock my "hinge" to adhere my seethrough front panel to the base, I did end up trimming down that strip later just so it covered less of my seethrough panel. I adhered that extra strip to the inside of my cardbase, I just used some liquid glue so I had some wiggle time to make sure it was in the right place.


To make my seethrough panel I used a laminator sheet, some glitter and my laminator, this is a really neat technique. Make sure you don't put a piece of cardstock actually in the pocket but have one underneath the pocket so it has some stability when going through the laminator, add whatever your favourite glitter inside the pocket and seal it up in the laminator, then you can trim it down to whatever size you need for your card. In this case I trimmed it down to 5x7 to fit the front of my card.


Then on the second panel in my card (or the front of the cardbase) I blended on my sky background with Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide inks, blending back and forth until I had a blend I liked, I did use a moon mask and blended around it to create my moon then brought in some Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink to add detail to the moon. I white heat embossed the trees and clouds onto the background and struggled to decide on how I wanted to add Santa.. in the end I decided to stamp him on the background in black in to make him stand apart from the background elements. I then splashed on some white paint and perfect pearls to create the look of snow.


Now we just need to adhere everything together, I adhered the seethrough panel to the small "hinge" I added to the card base and cut out some white pearl cardstock to hide the hinge and make it look pretty and finished. I hope I explained this in enough detail that it makes sense, if you want to see a more in-depth look at how I made this card please check out the video below. There's also a full supplies list if you want to know exactly what I used.


Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you again soon!!
