Each week in my free Tuesday evening Zoom class we make a new card! (Class is open to every one. Email me for details.) Fun folds are always a hit so this week we tried the Double Point Fold. It's quick and easy and can be adapted to suit your personal style. Here's a look at the first of two "insides!"
The second inside is the inside of the traditional card base. This card was made with Just Jade card stock and papers from the Forever Greenery paper pack. (PSA: This paper is retiring soon and will be gone forever!) The stamp set and die is the Forever Fern bundle.
This card is quick and easy to make. Here's what you need to start with:
Card base: 4 1/4” x 11”, scored at 5 1/2”
White: 5 1/4” x 4 - need 2 of these
White shape or coordinating color card stock.... rectangle or oval at least 2” x 3 1/4”
Patterned paper: cut a piece 4” wide by at least 6” long (can leave it 4” x12” ) , if the pattern is directional make sure it is the correct way when you cut a 4” x 6" piece
To make the double points, take your 4" x 6" piece of patterned paper and cut it at 3". Then score it at 1". If the paper is directional the piece that goes on the bottom will get scored 1" from the bottom and the piece that goes at the top, will be scored 1" from the top. (See the photo below.)
This is how a directional pattern is scored. I used the reverse side of this paper to make my card. This paper is from the Hydrangea Hill collection and I used the Hydrangea Haven stamp set to decorate this card.
Next you will fold both corners toward the scored line so you have a triangular shape. Use Tombow multipurpose glue to adhere these in place. Then adhere the triangles to the top and bottom of your 5 1/4" x 4" white mat by hanging the scored portion over the back.
On this card, I chose to adhere the triangular points "closed" and then adhere my oval onto them. I chose not to have this card open with the "points." It is missing my "To an Incredible Woman" sentiment as I did not have a small die cut with me. (I'm writing this "on the road!") I did put a sentiment in the inside and I will later add "Happy Mother's Day!" This will be my daughter's Mother's Day card! Good thing she doesn't read my blog!
This mat is then adhered to the front of the card base. My second white mat was adhered inside the card and I was done- for now. I'll add the other sentiments when I return home.
I hope you will give this fun fold a try. It's really quite fun to do.
