How to make a rectangular fold over card

I made this shape of card in a few demos at the end of last year and have been asked for written instructions, so here goes..........

1. Start with an A4 piece of card and trim the long side to 28cm
then fold in half across the card and lengthwise.
Score and fold from the top right corner to the bottom left corner.
Now fold these corners inwards to the bottom right corner to meet in a point.

2. Decorate as above.
I've used Papermill White Hammered and Sky Blue Plain (with a little Pale Turquoise) card along with the Tonic Studios Deco Trellis Base die, Forever from the Inspirations die set and the little hearts from the Someone Special die set.

Here's another similar card

  2. LOVE the card! Thank you so much for the measurements and tute on how to fold. I got those dies yesterday, so it's brilliant that you give us a super way to use them - thank you so much for sharing.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment, it's lovely to hear from you. Ruth
