Not all fancy folds need to be complex with lots of instructions. The fold I’m sharing today is a great option for changing up a classic A5 card using a couple of dies from your collection.
I cut the cardstock at 5-7/8” (the usual width of an A5 card) x 5-7/8” (usually this would be the length of A4 cardstock – approx 11-11/16”). I then used one of the dies from the Basic Borders Dies to cut one edge and scored at 4-1/8”. The folded flap forms part of the front of the card.
The rest of the front panel is made using the largest stitched scallop die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I’ve attached to the middle of the border so that it lines up with the bottom of the card. If you don’t have either of these dies, you can use similar die in your collection – or leave the top flap & front panel as rectangles.
The middle of the card is 5-5/8” x 3-7/8” with 1” pieces of DSP on each edge. You can see these when the card is closed, so it provides a pretty finish both open & closed.
The card is embellished with products from the You’re A Peach suite – Sweet As a Peach stamp set, Peach Dies and You’re A Peach DSP. I’ve used some of the coordinating colours in this suite – Pale Papaya, Petal Pink and Pear Pizzazz plus Blushing Bride & Basic White. They really do make for such sweet card. The ribbon is Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon – it’s so lush in a big bow at the top of the card.
You could also make this card with a side fold. I’ll share a sample soon using that variation.
Have a great weekend!
