I love this quick "half-front" card fold for when I want to do something special but don't have time for a lot of scoring or special tools. All you do is cut half of the front cover off, turn it 90 degrees and attach it at a slant to the remaining card front.
Note: I made two versions of this and dressed mine up a little more by using the front half of the red cards on the green bases, and vice versa. Sorry if that's a little bit confusing!
Here's the card when it's opened... place your interior greeting so that it is covered by the slanted piece on the cover, and add the Jolly Hat punch or some other cute little accent on the bottom right. Fun!
Ready for the measurements so you can try it at home? Here you go!
- the card base is 4.25 x 11 inches, scored at 5.5 inches.
- 2.75 inches gets cut off the front cover and used as a mat for the focal point.
- the patterned paper for the remaining front cover is 4 x 2.5 inches, and the same for the inside front cover.
- the background mat for the inside back of the card is 4 x 5.25 inches.
- the focal point piece and the interior greeting piece are both 2.5 x 4 inches.
