Folded Greeting Card

By:

Tired of boring cards? Use paper crafting techniques to construct a Folded Greeting Card from Einat Kessler. This craft is intricate but suitable for beginners.

Folded Greeting Card
 

Materials:

  • Double-sided cardstock
  • Embellishments

Directions:

  1. Cut a double sided cardstock 12" by 5.5".
     
  2. Make 4 folds at 2", 4", 8", 10"
     
  3. Turn the cardstock and make 2 cuts at 1.5" and 4". Cut only from the first fold to the last fold.
     
  4. Fold the card, starting from the left: first fold – mountain (out), second fold – valley (in), then mountain again and end with a valley fold.
     
  5. Change two of the folds: the inner second fold turns out and the third fold turns in.

  6. Now you have the basic card and you need to embellish it. Cut 2 sets of squares: The first set 1/4 of an inch smaller than each section (orange on my card). That would be the bottom layer. On top of it the second set of squares will be 1/2 of an inch smaller (stripes, yellow and green on my card).
     
  7. Add embellishments and sentiment.

Notes:

  1. My card is in Hebrew and opens from right to left, as seen in the photo. the instructions are for a card that opens from left to right. if you want the Hebrew version, change the order of the folds and start with a valley fold. change the inner folds accordingly.
