Today I have a fun fold card idea for you. My friend and fellow team member Lorna Raczynski created her take on an arrow fold card. My Stamp Club ladies were lucky enough to make one at their class this past week and they all loved it!
Again…I’m just loving the fall colors. I’ll talk a bit about the product she used, but first let me show you how to make an Arrow Card. This is what it looks like on the inside.
Cut a card base (5-1/2″ x 8″1/2″ …scored at 4-1/4″). Grab a pencil and a ruler and follow this template. Mark the center point of your card front (2-3/4″) and score from the middle score line on each side to that point. Then, measure 2″ up from each side, and score to that same point. Erase your pencil marks and fold along those lines. Use a bone folder to really sharpen the creases.
For the colored mat, cut a piece of cardstock 4″ x 5″. Mark the center of that (2-1/2″) and this time cut from each corner down to that point. Those 3 pieces will now fit perfectly on the front of your card. (sorry…this photo is a bit blurry.)
It’s that easy. Now you just decorate the rest of your Arrow Fold card.
