A week or two ago, I shared a card made with this fun technique and promised that I would do a video tutorial showing how to create the card base with patterned paper. First, I would like to thank my friend and Hollywood Stamping Chicks team member Sandy Reid for sharing her Dandy Designs Sale-A-Bration paper with me! I found myself without any bright, cheerful, small patterned, papers in the 12″ x 12″ size and Sandy came to my rescue!
I got the directions for this fun technique from fellow demonstrator Susan Burch. You can watch my Corner Fun Fold Technique Video for the directions.
This view is of the card open. The white area on the bottom right is for a note and signature. The landscape oriented image on the top left is adhered over the portrait image on the front.
This image shows how the diagonal score line creates gussets to close the card.
Here is a close-up view of the apple image on the front of the card.
- Card base of patterned paper 7″ x 8 1/4″
- Cardstock 1 – 3 pieces 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″
- Cardstock 2 – 3pieces 4 1/4″ x 3″
- White Cardstock 3 pieces 4″ x 2 3/4″
Score the base at 2 3/4″ from the left corner on the top and also along the side. Then measure and mark with pencil 5 1/2″ from the left corner in both directions. Score between these two marks. This should intersect the the place where the first two score lines cross.
Hope you enjoy this card fold! Use some of that stash of patterned paper!
