Christmas in July – Fun Fold Card

Time for another Christmas in July project.  This Christmas in July project features a fun fold card.  Like the first project, the card uses the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle and the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.  These products are located in the Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.   The bundle offers lots of versatility and for today’s fun fold card, I am highlighting the star elements from the bundle.  I am not sure if this card fold has a specific name but regardless, it’s a great change-up from a traditional card fold.  Card details and the video tutorial for assembly are below the card’s photo.
