Interactive Card Class Card #2 Squash Fold Card

I was asked to do a class using interactive cards or designs that were more interesting than the simple basic card. Since I always struggle knowing when to stop it's no surprise that of course I took the challenge and amplified it to not 1 but 3 interactive designs. The class was lots of fun and this is one of the projects we made.
This is the front when it is folded

This is the inside when it's opened

This is the way it folds flat - squashing in on itself

This is a squash fold card and I used the brilliant tutorial from Lyssa Zwolanek at Song of My Heart Stampers.
  • My card is a square of cardstock 21cm x 21 cm
  • Score in half at 10.5cm each way to create 4 squares 
  • score one diagonal fold from corner to corner
  • DSP is 4inches square - nice and easy with 12 x 12 DSP ( 9 pieces per page)
  • ribbon is approx 40cm- anchored only on the front under the banner.
Song of My Heart sample 

This version is the same design but using different DSP from the Whole lot of Lovely Set

This is it opened flat

 and tbis is it folding/squashing down flat ready for the envelope

It's a really effective card with a big impact. I hope you give it a try. 

Thanks for looking,
and remember
