During yesterdays Craft and Chat session, I demonstrated a Corner Flip fancy fold card. I got the inspiration for this card from a video by Rachel Tessman.
This card uses the discontinued Berry Blessings stampset and Berry Delightful DSP
For those who were not with us, and those who didn’t get their card finished, here are the instructions;
You will need:-
- Standard A5 card base
- Dsp 10×14.4cm x2 (one for outside, one for inside)
- Paper trimmer
- Stampset and sentiment to decorate
- Additional card for layer if desired
- Scrap of paper 7.5×7.5cm or post it note 3″ square will do the same job
- Pencil, ruler, eraser
Cover the front of your card base with DSP, taking care to not leave any parts unstuck, as when you cut through you don’t want any loose edges.
Take the scrap paper/post it note and measure 1cm from the top left corner down the left side and make a mark.
Do the same from the bottom right corner along the bottom
This should be a 7.5cm square!!
Lay this paper onto the top right of your card, lining up the top and right sides
Transfer the lines onto your card, but include around the bottom left corner too
These lines will be on your DSP not on the blank card as shown
Carefully line up the lines on the cutting guide of your paper trimmer and cut along between the marks
Take care not to cut right to the edges!
Very gently bend the top right corner of the card forward, pivoting on the 1cm edge pieces, until it reaches the front of the card and is square to the rest of the card. Once happy crease these edges so that it lays flat
Gently manipulate the fold
The top of your card should look like this!
And when stamped and layered and an insert added to the inside, should look like this !
Hope you have fun trying this out!
Happy Crafting xx
