A Double Bridge Christmas Card

Yesterday I made a FB Live video (and now on my YouTube channel, link in the sidebar) making a Double Bridge Card using a favorite but retired Spellbinders stamp and die set, Silent Night.

When I was on Pinterest yesterday I seen oodles of bridge cards using SU! stamps and loved them but I used what I had and came up with this. I also made a coordinating envelope as this will be my card for a specialized fun fold card swap at a local monthly stamp club in Tucson, AZ.

Since you couldn't see the star I took a closer picture. I die cut it out of some glitter paper. All images are colored with PrismaColor pencils.

This is the base card template...

I scored one end at 1 1/4" then flipped ends and scored at 1 1/4".
Then I flipped the base over and scored at 2 1/2", flipped ends and scored at 2 1/2". Next I made my folds.

The bridge is a piece of card stock cut 1 1/4" x 5 1/2". You can make it narrower if that is your desire. You will add adhesive on each end of the bridge.

Be sure and use a GOOD adhesive when attaching.

My video does have some good tips when assembling this card.

Have you made one of these before?
