It's is 'Tips and Technique' day over on the ScrapMuch? blog and of course, I wanted to share my technique here too!
I first saw this card folding technique on the Split Coast Stampers website, it is a great resource for card makers.
Anyway, let's get to it.......
|Start off by making your card base, using a 4" x 11" piece of card stock in the colour of your choice.|
|Score at 3.5" and 7".|
|fold from left to right so that the large 4" section ends up on the bottom, with the opening on the right.|
|Punch a tab on the bottom section so that it sits just below where the folded piece will sit. This will hold the card closed.|
|Punch a hole in the tab, this will secure a piece of ribbon.|
|Add a 3.25" x 3.75" piece of patterned paper to the front of your card.|
|Then I folded my card up and adhered the piece back onto my card, however this centre doily piece is now actually adhered to the inner portion of the card. See below.|
|I then embellished this area of the card with a stamped die cut piece, a flower and a stick pin.|
|This is how it will look when closed.|
|Open the card back up and stamp a sentiment onto the right hand side.|
|Close the card and secure with a ribbon fed through the hole on the tab.|
