Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Today I have an incredible Saint Nicholas easy fancy fold card for you. A fancy fold that is not difficult is really one of my favourite things!! Have you discovered the gorgeous Traditions of St NIck paper? It’s easy to miss because it isn’t in any of the Stampin’Up! catalogs. You can find it in the Online Exclusive section here.
My Easy Fancy Fold Card
The name of this fold is Twisted Easel Card. I made a video tutorial so you can see how easy it is. There are two cards that I made with this style. Which one is your favourite?
Fancy Fold Laid Flat
This is what the twisted easel fold card looks like when it is laid flat to go into the envelope. Still adorable, right?? The sentiment is popped up inside, and this is what holds the twisted easel part upright.
Incredibly Detailed Dies
This last photo really shows the incredible detail of the dies. Combine it with the gorgeous Traditions of St Nick paper and you are in paper crafting heaven! Truthfully, I am not often one to fuss with little dies, but making this card was supremely satisfying. This would be a great card to make with a group of friends. You could all take turns die cutting and then once you have a pile of different die cuts made you can get creative and play.
I do have an easier card to share as well. The paper does all the work for this card.
The card above uses Misty Moonlight for the sentiment, but I also did it with a Crumb Cake sentiment which I actually liked better! I used the Nested Essential dies to cut out the sentiment. The stitched detail is just so pretty!
Seeing is believing, so of course, I have a video tutorial for you! Please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t already done so!
