I got this idea from Bright Acres Creations that made this fun fold card using the Snow Wonder Stamp set by Stampin Up® and the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series paper.  As soon as I saw the fun fold I knew I wanted to use the “Warm and Toasty” Stamp set by Stampin UP® and the “Plaid Tidings” designer series paper.  Such a cute idea for a card.  

I just love the deer in the peep hole!  Plus I really like the Plaid Tidings Designer series paper it really pops in this card!

Please don’t be intimidated by the number of steps in this card it’s really not that hard and goes together quicker then it looks.  

You will love it when it’s done. If you try it leave me a comment below and let me know how it went!

Ok so lets get going here are the instructions:

Card base and cuts: (DSP = Designer Series Paper)

Card Base = Cherry Cobbler – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 

Flap = Cherry Cobbler  4 3/4 x 5 1/2 scored at 3/4 on the 5 1/2 side. 

Cardstock = Shaded Spruce – 4 1/8 x 5 3/8, 2 x 3; Whisper White 4 x 4, 4 x 5 1/4, (2) 1 x 6 1/2 

DSP = Plaid Tidings – 4 x 5 1/4 


  1. Flap – On the 5 1/2 side score at 3/4″ 
2. Cut flap – Using a pencil mark the flap 2 ¼ from the scored edge on the bottom and top edges then on the 5 ½ side mark 2 ¾ from bottom edge up.  

3. Then with your trimmer cut from the 2 ¾ mark to the 2 ¼ mark on each side.


4. Using the #3 Circle Die from the Layering Circles dies cut out circle in flap.

5.  Using the Winter Snow Embossing folder and the flap run through the Die cut machine. NOTE:  Do not emboss the scored edge keep it out of the folder. 

6.    Using the 2” punch and a Post-It-Note punch out a circle.

7.     Adhere the DSP to the Shaded Spruce matte. 

8.      Fold the card base backwards so that it opens from left to right. 

9.    Then place DSP/Matte onto card front using washi tape to hold it into place. (remember the card should be folded backwards)  

10.      Place card base into the scored edge of the flap and using the flap as your guide fold closed and place the Circle Post-it note onto the DSP/matte, remove from flap, separate from card front and cut out circle with the punch. 


11.   Now use the DSP/Matte as your guide.  Place  on the front of the card base (which should be backwards) 

12.  Place the Post-It note circle inside circle of DSP/Matte then move matte leaving the post-it-note on the card front and cut out circle from card front with Punch. 


13.  Place WW 4 x 5 ¼ piece on the inside of card close right side and using a pencil trace the circle.  

14.  Remove WW piece and stamp deer onto sheet with Black Memento Ink making sure the deer’s head is inside the circle.  Let dry a minute then erase pencil lines.

15.  Color in the deer. NOTE: I used Stampin Blends : Antlers/hooves – Soft Suede, Deer – Crumb Cake, Bow – Cherry Cobbler

16.   Stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce Ink and a couple of snowflakes next to the deers feet.

17.  Adhere to the inside of the card. (Note picture shows trim on front flap this has not been done yet)

18. Using the Ornate Border Dies cut out 2 borders from the 1 x 6 1/2 Whisper White pieces. 

 19.      Adhere borders to the edge of flap one at a time as you will need to trim one before you add the next one. 


20.  Burnish the score line very well then adhere the flap to the back side of the card base using Tear & Tape.  *****Very Important when you adhere it you need to close the card then place to the scored line and adhere******


 21.  Using the Layering circle dies cut out a scalloped frame using the #1 scalloped circle die and the #3 straight circle die from the 4 x 4 WW piece. 


22.  Adhere scalloped frame to the front of the flap.

 23.  Stamp the sentiment onto the WW circle that you just cut out then using the Layering Oval Dies cut out straight edge oval using # 7 die. 

24.  Next using same dies and the 2 x 3 Shaded Spruce piece cut out a scalloped oval using #6 die.

     25.  Adhere sentiment oval to scalloped oval. 


     26.  Then place both on the front of the card flap as shown. 


     27.  Adhere Basic Pearls to card front as shown. 

     28.  Burnish flap again – it will eventually lay flat!

Whew!  All done!  See not so bad it just seems like a lot of steps.  Such a cute card!  Thanks again for stopping by my blog and I hope you jump in with both feet and try making this card!  Don’t forget to let me know how it all comes out!
