I have a "last minute" Christmas card for you.  This is a fun fold card that looks MUCH more complicated than it is.  If you can score and fold cardstock, you can make this card!  Rudolph is Leaping with Joy at how easy this card is. 

It is also a great fun fold design to use up some of that Designer Series Paper (DSP) that we all tend to "accumulate"!

This card is made with the Boughs of Holly DSP and the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set and Deer Builder Punch.

This fun fold actually has two cards.  The full-size card with multi-accordion-like folds, and then a small card that is 3" x 3" when folded.  The small card nestles among the accordion folds.

Once you get the cutting and scoring completed, the assembly goes very quickly.  The woodland DSP was mounted to Mossy Meadow Mats and then to each of the accordion folds -- easy-peasy!

The mottled green DSP was also layered to Mossy Meadow mats and then to each flap of the small card -- more, easy-peasy!

The Leaping deer was stamped with Sahara Sand ink on Basic White and punched out with the Deer Builder Punch--more, easy-peasy!

The sentiment was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink on Basic White and then die cut with a die from Stylish Shapes Dies (my favorite dies).  The circle behind Rudolph was also die cut with a Stylish Die, and before adhering it to the front of the small card, it was given just a hint of Balmy Blue color with a Blending Brush.  You could certainly leave it white!

To finish the card front, Red Rhinestones were added at each end of the sentiment and, of course, to Rudolph's nose.

A few Mossy Meadow trees were stamped along the bottom of the Basic White card "inside", and the Cherry Cobbler sentiment was stamped so that when the fun fold is closed it is hidden behind the small card.

Easy right?  Like I said, if you can score and fold cardstock and assemble Designer Series Paper to cardstock layers, you can make this card!  The lucky recipient will think you stayed up all night making this card, but you don't need to tell them how easy it really was!
