"Special Fold Card"

Monday, April 25, 2011

Hope everyone had a Great Easter with thier family and loved ones. The weather here was great, and the community pool was crowded.

The card I have for you today is a special fold card. After it is folded, it will fit a standard A2 envelope. I'm cheap that way and try to stick to regular postage.

Here is the card of the day;

"Special Fold"

The image stamp used for this card was one from "Just-Rite" stamps called "Beautiful Blossoms". The sentiment stamp is from "The Angel Company" called "Swirly Sayings". The sentiment stamps is a discountinued set, but I never get rid of sentiment stamp sets. You never know when you will need them.

The cardstock is cut to 4 1/4" X 11". It is scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2". After it is scored it is folded in half then folded back to the left. This leaves you with a standard 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card.

Most of the background papers I purchased from Joann's. The image was cut out with a Spellbinder die. The decorative strip on the center mat was punched with a "Martha Stewart" punch.

Of course the image was colored with my Copic markers.

The card was fun to make. I hope you enjoy it and will leave a comment.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Great card Bob. Is this also known as a Z-Fold card? I need to make one next month for a Design Team post and haven't looked up the instructions. I have made one before but it has been awhile. Thanks. Love the colors.

    Hey Bob!
    Gorgeous card! Are you sure you mean 112 inches? I am measurement challenged, so that's why I am asking! Thanks for sharing!
