Free Friday-Four Folds Card!

Happy Valentine's month! Valentine's is fast approaching and I thought I would show you a neat way to create a card. I'm not sure who originated this idea and I'm not sure what the card fold is called, but I'm calling it the "Four Folds Card":

If you scroll down to view all 4 of these photo's, you will notice I used 4 different patterns from the "More Amore Designer Paper". The photo above is Side 1. Keep scrolling:

And the photo below shows you what the card looks like from above:

To create this card, all you need are 4 cardstock panels measuring 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I glued a piece of DSP to each panel with a different pattern on each measuring 5" x 3 3/4". I then scored each panel in the center at 2 1/8" on the 4 1/4" side. Before I folded on each score, I used my "Hearts Collection Framelits" to cut a heart in the center of each panel. In order to make sure all the hearts line up exactly on each panel, I measured an equal distance from the bottom of each panel and marked it with my pencil. This is where I lined up the bottom of my framelit and cut all 4 panels.

Once all of your hearts are cut out, fold all 4 panels in half with your "Bone Folder". Glue the half panels to each other until you get to the last one. Before you glue the last 2 panels together, insert a piece of ribbon or baker's twine so that it will hang in the center of your card and glue in place. Finally, glue your last 2 panels together.

If you want to create a floating heart in the center glued to the baker's twine like I did on mine, cut 4 hearts, fold in half and glue the halves together like you did the card panels.
