The "Amazing Fold" Card!

Good Morning! I am so glad you are visiting me today. Don't forget to say hi before you leave. I would love to hear from you!

A new card fold called "The Amazing Card Fold" is what I will be showing you today, full of photo's of all the steps needed for you to recreate. The completed size of this card is 4" x 4":


The card opens by untying the ribbon on the side to reveal this on the inside for you to decorate as you like:


Step 1: Measure a piece of cardstock 8" x 8". I used Not Quite Navy Cardstock in my sample. You can see all the folds I made in this photo below:


Fold in half, open, turn 180 degrees and fold in half in the opposite direction:


Open your cardstock piece and fold in half diagonally:


To fold your card, push in on the diagonals so that the card looks like this:


For the inside I cut 2 panels from the Paisley Petals DSP measuring 3 3/4" x 3 3 3/4". Glue to the two panels that have no score lines visible. Stamp the other 2 panels with the image from "My Friend" stamp set in Not Quite Navy Ink:


Cut another piece of the Paisley Petals measuring 3 3/4" x 3 3 3/4" and glue to the front of your card:


Using the Chocolate Chip 1/2 Inch Scallop Dots Ribbon, cut a piece 20" long and glue across the front panel only:


Stamp the leaf image using Always Artichoke Ink and the sentiment with Not Quite Navy Ink on a scallop square cut with the BigShot and the Scallop Squares Duo on Whisper White Cardstock. Glue to a Not Quite Navy Cardstock piece measuring 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" using Stampin' Dimensionals. Glue to the front of your card on top of the ribbon. Using your Color Spritzer Tool and a Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker, spritz some dots on your card:


Wrap the ribbon around the back of the card and tie into a bow at the side of your card!
