The tutorial that I found in a UK papercrafting magazine for an Arrow fold card shared two variations for creating the point. The first one, I shared with you on Wednesday. Today, I will show the second variation. It looks nearly the same; the amount of cardstock peeking from behind the front point is a bit different.
Stamp: Ornate Thanks
Ink: Terracotta Tile, Blushing Bride
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White, Gold foil, Ornate Garden specialty DSP
Accessories: Stitched Rectangles dies, Small Bloom punch (SAB but returning!)
This time, I glued down the triangles just along the edge, so that they create a pocket. You can use this card as a gift card holder! And, it’s totally hidden until your recipient opens the card.
This card is made almost the same way as the previous card, except that there is an extra fold on the card front.
Mark the halfway point on the open edge of the card front. Add marks to the sides at 1-3/8″ and 2-3/4″ from the center fold (5-3/4″ and 7″ if you have the full card length in your score tool).
Score up from the central mark to the corners of the fold, and the other two marks. You should have three score lines on each side of the card front.
Accordion fold and secure to the inside of the card base.
The mats and DSP pieces are cut the same way as the previous card:
- Mat: 4 x 5-1/4″, cut from both corners on the long side, to the central point on the opposite side
- DSP: 3-3/4 x 5″, cut from both corners on the long side, to the central point on the opposite side
Once again, I decided to make the card in pairs, to use mix and match coordinating papers.
Since this card base used darker cardstock, I added Whisper White to the inside for a place to write. It is cut the same way as the DSP for the front of the card.
Isn’t that a cool look? And fancy? But, it’s quick and easy. Try it out!
