In the next few weeks, I’m going to be sharing a bunch of cards featuring fun folds. Today’s may be my favorite! This fold creates a 3D effect when you stand the card up so it looks a little like a picture window or a diorama. It’s super easy to make!
In this sample, the piece of Pacific Point card stock is 4 1/4” x 8. Score it at 1 1/4”, 2 1/2”, 5 1/2”, and 6 3/4”. Fold the two outsides into a z-fold by folding the center score marks towards the middle and then fold them back out on the outside score marks.
Cut it a strip of Pacific Point card stock to measure 5 1/2” x 1”. Lay your base card on the table with the folds on one side opened and the folds on the other side folded. Adhere the outside edges of the long strip to the two outer panels. It should lay flat like this as this is how you put it in the envelope. You can unfold the folded side to see how the card pops open to stand on a table or shelf.
To finish the card, cut four pieces of patterned paper to 1” x 4”. Adhere these to the outer panels. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to 2 3/4” x 4” for the center panel. Add stamped images of your choice!
I just love the depth and texture of this fun fold card. I’d love to see your creations with it!
