Hello everyone, Kelli here with a tutorial for you. The DT have decided that we are going to post a tutorial every Friday and sometimes you’ll get two!!! As I generally don’t do tutorial’s I decided to bite a big bullet and post the first one!!! I have wanted to learn how to make this card since I received one in a RAK some time ago. The one I received didn’t open and I like my cards to open so I tweaked it a bit for my liking. I hope you enjoy!!!!
List of Ingredients:
One 81/2” x 11” piece of patterned paper (I used Girls Night Out: Ooh La La by We R Memory Keepers)
Adhesive (I used red lined double sided tape)
Paper Scoring tool
Additional cardstocks, embellishments and stamps to decorate the front of the card with. I used 3 Bombshell Stamp sets, Bombshell Angel, A Pirate’s Life, and Cherry Bomb.
STEP 1: Score the long side of the patterned paper and score at 4 ¼ and fold in half.
STEP 2: Turn the paper 90 degrees. Score at 5 ½ and fold in half.
STEP 3: Unfold the paper and cut the line from the left edge of the paper to the middle.
STEP 4: Fold the bottom right corner so the bottom edge meets the center score. 4A: Fold down the top left corner, leave 1 ½ “ room from the edge of the folded down edge to the center vertical fold line…
STEP 5: Fold the top left side over to the top right side.
STEP 6: Fold bottom up.
STEP 7: Fold left side back towards right side to form card.
Once you have all of your fold made and have done a dry run to make sure everything works out, now is when you use your adhesive.
STEP 8: Unfold the card and add your adhesive to the top left corner and bottom right corner as shown. Remove red liner and fold as in steps 4 and 4A.
STEP 9: Once you have made those folds add more adhesive as shown above. Remove red liner from adhesive and fold as in Step 6.
Continue with step 7 until your card looks like this!
Finish as you like. I used 3 different Bombshell sets and made tags for my pockets.
