This tutorial will show you how to make a W-fold card out of one sheet of 8.5 x 11″ cardstock. I’m using the World of Good suite for my project, but you can use whatever colour you like!
Cut your cardstock as follows, and burnish all score lines:
Cardbase: 4.25 x 11, scored at 5.5″
W strip: 1.75 x 11, scored at 2.75, 5.5, and 8.25″
Panels: 2.5 x 2.75″ (4 pieces)
If desired, decorate the inside of your card with DSP (4 x 5.25″).
Decorate your four panels as desired. I used cardstock and DSP cut to 2-3/8 x 2-5/8″ to decorate the panels.
Attach the four panels to your W cardstock strip. I found it easiest to apply the adhesive to the cardstock strip, rather than the panels. Keep in mind the panels are somewhat narrower than the strip, so the adhesive shouldn’t go all the way to the edges.
The W strip with all panels added:
Fold up your W and apply adhesive to the back of the last panel. Attach to the inside right of your card.
Now apply adhesive to the back of the first panel of your W strip, and close your card. This panel will attach to the inside left of your card.
Here are some pics of the finished card:
Decorate the front of your card as desired.
