Corner Fold Card

 I learned of this fun fold from a fellow Demo in the UK, Claire Ottaway. It's a great card to use with our double-sided designer series paper. Here is a FREE PDF file of the tutorial with diagrams.

  1. On the long side of the card base, with the fold at the top, place a tick mark with your pencil 3-1/2” from the edge.
  2. Rotate the card base so that the short side is at the top. Place a tick mark with your pencil 2-3/4” from the edge.
  3. Score a line from one tick mark to the next. Be sure to go over it a couple of times so that it will go through both pieces of cardstock.
  4. Use a bone folder to press the scored triangle to the inside of the card base.
  5. Cut three panels, two from Designer Series Paper and one from basic white cardstock 5-3/8” x 4," white and two different patterns of DSP: follow the same procedure as on the card base. On the long side place a pencil tick mark at 3-1/2” from the edge. On the short side place a tick mark at 1-1/4” from the edge. Cut from one pencil tick mark to the other.
  6. To cut the triangles for the inside fold-in pieces, cut a rectangle 3-1/4” x 2-9/16,” then cut from one corner to the opposite corner. If the pattern is directional, you may need to cut an additional triangle.
  7. Decorate the top left corner on the front cover by gluing pansies on the bottom edge. Be sure the flowers do not extend beyond the size of a 4-1/” x 5-1/2” card.
