It’s been a while that I was able to sit down and actually make a card and I finally got a chance to yesterday to make this gatefold card.
I used four different sets of framelits and thinlits to make this card – lol. I started with a card base of Tranquil Tide cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″.
I cut the diamond shape in the centre using the Layering Square Framelits. The snowflake is from the Season Layers Thinlits, the trees from the Card Front Builder Thinlits and the stars from the Detailed Santa Thinlits all from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper. The Designer Series Paper is the Delightful Daisy DSP and the sentiment is from Santa’s Sleigh.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
Today’s card is a sparkly Z Fold Santa’s Sleigh card, another from my White Christmas card class.
I had a lot of fun putting it together but cutting for a class was quite a different matter – lol. Glitter all over the desk after cutting the reindeer, trees and sleigh. I love the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP and incorporated the sheet with the snowflakes onto the card. There are so many other beautiful sheets in this Designer Series Paper package that I’m looking forward to using.
I cut some Silver Foil snowflakes using the snowflake thinlit from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. I love working with the foil paper as they cut like butter and they added a little extra punch to the card.
Z Fold cards are very easy to make and they so impressive! Cut the card stock 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″. Cut the band 1 1/2″ x 11″ and also score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″. The base card has the long side face up. Just reverse the band so that the long side is at the back of the card.
The rest of the layers are cut:
- 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/2″ x 4″ (2 x) (Silver Foil)
- 5″ x 3 3/4″, 2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ (2 x) (Year of Cheer DSP)
- 5 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 2″ (2x) (Silver Foil)
- 5″ x 1″, 2 1/4″ x 1″ (2X) Year of Cheer DSP

Another very cool bundle coming on June 1 is the Colorful Seasons Bundle. Colorful Seasons stamp set and the Season Layers Thinlits dies make up this neat bundle. Only 11 days away before the new catty is live! But who’s counting?
Also co-ordinating with this bundle is the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack and today’s card uses all three of the items.
The card base is Dapper Denim cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. I trimmed down one of the sheets of the Color Theory DSP Paper Stack to 3″ x 4 1/2″ and adhered it to a Basic Black mat cut 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″.
On the DSP I used a mask to sponge the sun with Daffodil Delight classic ink. The birds are from High Tide stamped with Black Archival ink. I used the Season Layers thinlits to cut the chair as well as the cool drink of lemonade. The sentiment is also from Colorful Seasons. I love the peaceful image of the card.
