Today’s cards are made using the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Papers.
These cards are a Fancy Fold card called a Triangle Fun Fold.
and here is how it opens.
These cards are quite quick and easy to make and you can create 2 base cards from one piece of A4 cardstock.
Materials used to make 2 Triangle Fold cards.
- 1 x A4 cardstock – for base
- 2 x sheets of DSP (Tidings of Christmas are 6″ x 6″)
- 2 x inserts – 100mm x 143mm (bottoms are decorated with some of the offcuts of DSP used for decorating the fronts)
- Pieces for stamping and die cuts on front.
To make, you score the A4 piece of cardstock in the centre on both the long and short side. Then, cut diagonally from the top left corner on short side down to the bottom right corner on the short side. This wouldn’t fit in my trimmer so I used a long ruler and cutting blade on top of a craft mat. (A rotary blade and quilting ruler would be ideal). Fold on your score line and this creates the 2 base cards.
To decorate, cut 2 pieces of dsp 98mm x 138mm and cut diagonally from top right corner on short side to bottom left corner on short side. These should fit the triangles nicely or trim slightly if needed to give an even border on all 3 sides.
Finish by decorating as desired.
