So I do really love a card that sits up or has a fancy you fold, and this design is super simple and ever so effective. I have seen it before but it surfaced again recently on the GDP challenge which I follow avidly ( though I seldom get a chance to enter despite my best intentions).
This is a simple card which folds flat for postage, and I will have a whole stash of them at the Rockhampton Handmade Expo Markets markets next week . I will also be running a class to make this later in the year.
Take piece of A4 cardstock and trim it to 25cm x 15cm
Cut panels 4 at 5cm x 14.5cm
cut 3 pattern panels and one plain panel at 4.5cm x 14cm
cut two circles of scrap cardstock 1.25inches
front decorative panel whatever size you like
- With the cardstock sitting Landscape in your scorer, score at 5.5cm, 11cm, 16.cm and 23cm.
- fold along crease lines and adhere 3cm flap behind one panel to make your box.
- score and fold the circles in half. - actually it's easiest to score a long strip in half and then punch out the circe - see photo below
- on the front glue one half of each circle either side of your centre fold, the other free half of the circle is your anchor point for the front panel.
decorate - then write and post to your friend!!!!!
More samples to follow. Keep an eye out!
