I'm not really sure what this card fold so I will just call it an Angled Corner Card. I love it because it looks different and has a bit of a surprise inside. It's really quick and easy to make once you read through the directions. I used the Dandy Garden papers and both the Garden Wishes bundle and Dragonfly Garden bundle. Here's a photo of the inside view:
To start you will need the following supplies:
1. Card base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
2. Patterned paper for card front: 5 1/4" x 4"
3. Patterned paper for inside top: 5 1/4" x 4"
4. One white piece of card stock: 5 1/4" x 4"
5. Using a scrap piece of paper cut a rectangle 3 1/2" x 2 1/2"
Now, take that scrap paper rectangle and cut it in half on the diagonal so you have two triangles. Lay them on your opened card base as shown in the photos below and mark the point of the triangle and the bottom edge. You will score between these two marks or you can lightly trace the length of the triangle. (I drew my lines in pencil so you could see where you will score your paper. I don't recommend doing yours so dark.)
Score along those lines. Then gently fold the card base inward on those two diagonal lines. Burnish the folds with your bone folder once you have them started. Next you will cut the two pieces of patterned paper and the inside piece of white. I am going to make this card in Portrait orientation so I've placed my card base in that orientation. The first picture shows how I placed the triangle template so I can cut off the correct corner to place this piece of paper on the front. I want the shape of the patterned paper to mimic the shape of the front of the card. The second photo shows the piece that will go on the inside left panel, and the third photo shows the inside right panel.
I marked the spot on each side where the triangle ends and then lined those marks up in the cutter channel and then cut off the triangles. I will use the two triangles from the patterned pieces to decorate the inside triangles. In order for these triangles to fit, trim 1/4" off the short side. Now, adhere all your papers in place.
Now your card is essentially "built" and you will just need to add die cuts and sentiments. You can have die cuts extend beyond the angled fold just be sure to check that you are not extending further than will fit in an envelope.
Here's a look at my completed card again.
