Folded Greeting Card


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


  • Double-sided cardstock
  • Embellishments


  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.
