Diagonal Fun Fold – Easy, Quick & Packs A Punch!
A lot of Fun Fold cards require a lot of patient scoring and folding. The best part of the Diagonal Fun Fold is that it’s super quick and easy – but it looks like you spent hours creating the card!
To keep things simple on this card, I let the Happiness Blooms Designer Paper do the heavy lifting on both the outside and inside of this card! When you’ve got Paper this bright & cheery, let it be the focal point for you!
Here’s how I made this card:
· Score an 8-1/2” x 11” piece of Poppy Parade cardstock in half at 4-1/4” and then at 5-1/2”. Lining it up in the cutter at a diagonal, cut at a diagonal (from upper left to lower right. If your Trimmer isn’t quite long enough, you may have to finish the last inch with your scissors. Fold on the score lines to create your diagonal card.
·Line up a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Happiness Blooms Designer Paper in your Trimmer on a diagonal – either the upper left to lower right corner OR upper right to lower left corner. TIP: you may have to refold your cardstock in the “other” direction so that your paper lines up.
· Adhere the Designer Paper to the Poppy Parade flaps.
· Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink in the center of a 4” x 5-1/4” White cardstock; adhere a 1/2” strip of Happiness Blooms Designer Paper to bottom & layer inside card.
· On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink; punch out and layer onto pre-punched Tag using Dimensionals. TIP: Layer ONE SIDE ONLY onto the flap so that your card can open. Ask me how I know! *Ü*
