‘Tis the Season – Folded Cards

‘Tis The Season

Here are some more cards made for the up coming holiday. I saw this template at mom’s house the other day and snagged it from her. We have such different styles when it comes to scrapping that I new I had to lift from it and see what I could come up with.

card 6

So I made a little tutorial in case anyone wanted to try it for themselves.

card set up 1

I used a 8.5×11 piece of card stock, cut it at 4.5 inches. Scored it vertically at 6″.

card set up 2

Put on the diagonal score plate and score at 3 3/4″ and 8 1/4″

card set up 3

Flip paper over and score again at 3 3/4″ and again at 8 1/4″. (I messed up so ignore the one score line)

card set up 4

Cut off the top two corners to and fold according to picture.

card set up 5

Now the fun begins, picking out the paper and start cutting. a total of (4) 3″x3″ squares are needed per card and 2 of them will be cut in half. I also cut 6×4 1/2″ pieces and scored and cut appropriately to cover the larger portion of the card.

I used a decorative die and added some detail. I also inked the edges to soften the look.

card set up 7

I decide to break up the inside and cut another 3×3 inch paper for the holiday sentiment.

card set up 8

And then the real fun begins, all the pretty flowers and details.

So here are some close ups:

card 2

card 7

card 8

I used a little piece of Velcro to keep the card closed.

card 9

I used some glitter mesh to give it some more details and texture, and did some stenciling right over the mesh.

card 4

I hope you give these a try they are fun and different from the traditional A2 cards. So off I go to make some matching envelopes.
