Hello Stampers! Today I have a GREAT fold card that I learned from Dawn Griffith. As I’m sure you’ve already noticed I do love different folded cards. This one will be a keeper for sure! Originally Dawn showed a square card but I decided that I could make it a regular A2 card by just adhering the square to a piece of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ cardstock. I’ll show you both my designs.
First, I made the square card.
It just looks like a cute square card, right…
Open it up and you have a nifty little pocket for a greeting, letter, gift card or money. That black and Very Vanilla card comes out and you can add your greeting. The added touch made by the Card Front Builder Thinlits really adds to the seasonal theme. (From the new Early Release of the Carols of Christmas Bundle.) I love it!
Knowing the post office is not fond of square envelopes I made this card.
I made another square card and adhered it to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I used the new Early Release stamp set Carols of Christmas.
Since we usually send a Christmas letter to all our distant friends we don’t get to see often I worked on folding the letter so that it would fit in the pocket. I’ll probably put another square on the opposite side of the pocket with my greeting. In this case in Very Vanilla.
Don’t be surprised if you see a few more cards designed incorporating this awesome fold. My September classes will be focused on Christmas and a few Hanukkah cards so we’ll be in the holiday mood. I make all my Christmas cards…a LOT of them so I change up the designs so I don’t get bored. Plus, I’m doing a Fall Craft Fair at our church and I’d like to make boxes of Christmas cards to sell. My studio will become Santa’s Card Shop!
Rather than my trying to explain the Tri-fold Pocket Card I’m going to give you the video done by Dawn Griffith. She does an outstanding job so why re-invent the wheel. 🙂
