Easy Fun Fold

This is a great quick fun fold card, when you need to get a quick card done or you are running out of time with your Christmas cards you could make a few of these up really quickly. A great style for a invite or thank you card when you are needing to do a great deal of cards in one go. You could make these in stages and get them done very quickly.

Instructions:
  • Base Card is a piece of cardstock measureing 11 inches x 4.25 inches, scored at 4.25" and at 8.5 inches.

  • Using your 2-1/2" circle punch, punch a circle on the 8.5" scoring line at the short end of the card ensure the line is in centre of punched circle.

  • Use your bone folder to crease all creases firmly.

  • Apply your DSP paper on the front of the large piece - your DSP should measure 4 inches x 4 inches, I have also put it on the inside.

  • To lign up your DSP paper on the inside hold it as straight as you can and using the same circle punch looking from the wrong side punch a circle. Then you should be able to stick this piece of DSP paper down inside so the card has a finished look - refer to my pictures of my card on my blog.

  • Using the largest scallop punch cut out a coordinating scallop and glue down so when the card is close you can see the whole scallop piece, ensure you only apply glue to the bottom of the scallop. Then cut out a smaller scallop and apply to the larger scallop on your card.

  • I have added some embellishments, snowflake elements and some winter wonderland embellishments.

  • Note: You will need to make a closure using your punches as shown on the front of my card, make sure you only apply glue to the bottom of the larger scallop or circle so you can slip the card underneath it to have a closed card. I hope you enjoy making these cards as much as I have - they are a very easy card to make.
