This is a simple fun-fold card I taught at a recent Mystery Stamping evening. You can create your own very easily, with any Designer Series Paper you have on hand! I think this fold works especially well with papers that have a continuous design, such as New Horizons – you’ll see why as I show you how the card is made.

Start with the following cuts of cardstock and Designer Series Paper:
Cardstock Colour 1:
cardbase, 8.5 x 5.5″, scored in the centre
4-1/8 x 1-5/8″ (four pieces)
2 x 8.5″

Cardstock Colour 2:
4 x 5.25″ (two pieces)

Cardstock colour 3:
3-5/8 x 4-7/8″

Designer Series Paper:
4 x 6″ (landscape)
3.5 x 4.75 (portrait)

Take your 4 x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper and cut it into four strips, measuring 1.5″ each.

(See how the picture continues across the four pieces? This creates a cool effect on your card!)

Mat these four pieces on the four pieces of cardstock colour 1.

Take your two pieces of cardstock colour 2, and dry emboss them. Attach them to the inside of your card.

Take your 2 x 8.5″ piece of cardstock colour 1 and burnish all the folds as shown below.

Attach your four DSP/cardstock panels to this strip in order from left to right. Note where I have applied adhesive in the photo below; leave space between the adhesive and the scorelines, as the panels are narrower and will not take up the full space.

Once all four panels are attached, lay the strip down on your card (without any adhesive) and figure out where you will attach it, somewhat centered on your card.

Accordion-fold your four panels and apply adhesive to the first panel, as shown. Then close the card to attach.

Repeat the same process to attach the last panel.

Take your other piece of Designer Series Paper and mat it on the piece of cardstock colour 3. Stamp on it if desired. Attach to the front of your card.

Once you’ve made your own four-panel card, come and share a photo with me on my Facebook page! I love to see your creations!

Happy Stampin’!
