I’m showcasing another Arrow Fold card today as I have a card c lass tomorrow that is going to make this as a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card, but will also make a 4 1/4 x 11 size card with this fun fold. I posted the other card a few days ago and you can see that card here, with all it’s dimensions and glory. Today’s card though…

Arrow Fold 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.1

This card was made with a retired DSP from the recent Sale-a-bration as a FREE product with a $50 purchase. It is called Peaceful Prints. I need lots of Christmas cards and this was a perfect use for this paper. :O) But you may use lots of other Designer Series Papers. Here are details:

Step 1 – Cutting & scoring

  • Card base: Basic Black 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 for this card. Score on the front panel from the right corner score line to the center point (2 3/4″). Do the same from the score at the left top corner to the center point. Mark 2″ up from the bottom on the short side of the front on both short sides. Score again from the 2″ mark to the center point on both sides of the front panel. Burnish well.
  • Layer 1: Basic White 5 3/8 x 4 1/8,(cut 2) Mark center on the long side on both panels at 2 1/16″. CUT from right corner to center point. Do the same from the left corner to the point. Do this to both Basic White panels. I strongly encourage marking on the back side of the center triangle the top of the triangle for both triangular panels.
  • Layer 2: DSP – Peaceful Prints 5 1/4 x 4. Mark the center point on the bottom of the DSP @ 2″. CUT from the right upper corner to the center point. Do the same from the upper left corner to the center point.

Step 2 ~ Adhering

  • Adhere DSP to correct panels. There will be a Basic White triangular panel for the inside of the card to stamp. There will be an extra set of Basic White corner panels that will not be used.
  • Add corner panels to the INSIDE of the card.
  • Turn in the front corner scores and adhere. See photo…
  • Turn the second score line (the 2″ score) and mark a line to indicate where the glue should be placed. Refer to 1st photo above. Adhere these score lines outward.
  • Add center panels to the FRONT of the card.

Step 3 ~ Decorate Front

  • Cut a 3″ square of Basic White and die cut a scalloped circle.
  • Cut a 2 3/4″ square of Garden Green and die cut a circle. Adhere together.
  • Cut a 2 1/2″ square of Vellum and die cut a circle.
  • Adhere with dimensionals, a Wonderful snowflake to the center of the Vellum circle.
  • Adhere Vellum piece with a bit of glue in the center, to the Garden Green circles.
  • Adhere this Wonderful Snowflake/ circle to the triangle on the front of the card as shown, allowing room for a sentiment banner.
  • Stamp with Garden Green ink the sentiment on a 5/8″ wide strip. The sentiment comes from Snowman Season stamp set. Trim ends with Pick a Banner Punch. Add banner to the front of the card with dimensionals on the extended panels.

Step 4 ~ Decorate the inside

  • With the remaining Basic White triangular panel (note the top mark on the back!), stamp the sentiment from Snowman Season in Garden Green ink.
  • Stamp snowflakes from Snowman Season stamp set in Memento Black ink
  • Adhere triangular panel to the inside of the card – and the card is done!

Step 5 ~ the Envelope

  • Stamp the front of the envelope with the very cute dancing snowman in Memento Black ink from the Snowman Season stamp set.
  • Adhere a 2 14 x 6 panel of coordinating Peaceful Prints DSP to the flap, trim to fit & voila… another Christmas Card.

Isn’t this a fun fold, AND a fun, happy Christmas card? I’m very please with it and think this will make a hit at our card class tomorrow. Maybe we’ll take some photos of their completed cards :O)
