I have such a fun card to share with you today! It's called a Four-Fold Card, and it looks fancy on the outside, but its even more amazing when you open it! Here it is partially opened...
And here it is opened all the way... this is a BIG, impressive card!
Isn't that FUN? And it's really not all that complicated, just a couple of scores and two little trimmed bits. I took a couple of extra photos for the tutorial to make sure you don't get confused at all, but it's easy, I promise!
Best part of all? It FITS in a regular envelope! Let's learn how to make it. To begin, you'll need to gather:
- scoring tools such as the Simply Scored or the Paper Trimmer with scoring blade;
- strong adhesive such as Tear N Tape, Tombow Multi or Sticky Strip;
- coordinating cardstock, inks, and stamps as desired
I used the Helping Me Grow, Timeless Textures and Butterfly Basics stamp sets, with Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White cardstock. My ink colors were Elegant Eggplant, Sweet Sugarplum, So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder and Soft Sky. All supplies Stampin' Up! And all available through me or your local demonstrator.
Ok, here we go! First, cut your cardstock for the card base. It will need to be made from 12x12 cardstock.
Now there's just one last bit of business left... neaten up the little flap. That wasn't so bad, was it? Pretty simple, actually!
Once the card base is completed, it's just a matter of decorating the panels as you prefer. I've included measurements for matted layers for each of the panels. as you can see, I got really fancy with mine!
I hope you're inspired to turn off the computer and go get in the craft room! The Four-Fold Card will be a great design for your repertoire for years to come. I can't wait to make more.
Thanks for stopping in, and please feel free to share this post with your friends!
