A few days ago I saw a card with a different fold. It’s called a diagonal tri-fold. I get the diagonal part, and I guess it’s called tri-fold because there end up being three sections. Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool and decided to try it out. The Heartfelt Blooms stamp set had not seen ink yet so it seemed a good marriage!

I’ve been on a fussy cutting kick lately, can you tell?

Design Notes for Heartfelt Blooms Card:

The fold is not hard. As with most A2, standard cards, it uses half of a sheet of card stock. The key is the scoring.

Here are the key elements of the card base.

  • Score a sheet of card stock along the length at 4 1/4″
  • Next score the width at 5 1/2″

  • Position the diagonal with corners in the cutting channel of the Stampin’ Trimmer.

  • The result is a triangular piece with two score lines. (Actually 2 pieces!)
  • Finally, fold on the score lines.

You can add layers on the folded triangular pieces as you like. The other part to this card is to add pieces so that one can overlap the other and keep the card a bit closed.

Can  you see that the tag section is what will hold the card closed? When the card is closed, it slips under the flower piece.

Maybe I need to do a video for you!
