BI FOLD CARD.
Uses two matching blank card bases. On this example I have used cards that are 5" square.
Place cards side by side with the open edges together.
Tip 1. Remove a slither of card on the back page of 1st card. This will enable the cards to fit together .
Add ds tape to the front of the second card and then adhere the two cards together . This will make a strip of card that is 15" long. Score at 2.5" and 12.5". This will then fold to make a card base of 5" square.
Mark 2" down from the top of each outside edge and draw a diagonal line up to the first and last fold.
Trim these two pieces off and discard.
You can now go ahead and decorate your card as desired.
Uses 12"square design paper. Trim down to 6" x12". Score at 2", 4", 8" and 10".
Mark 3" down from the top of each outside edge and draw a diagonal line up to the second and third fold lines. Trim these pieces off but this time keep.
Cut them at the 2" crease line on both pieces.
Adhere to the base card as shown.
This will give you card base that looks like this open
and like this closed.
you can now decorate as required.
Uses full scape paper 8.25" x 11.75". Trim down to 5.5" x11.5". Score at 1.75", 3.5", 7" and 8.75".
Tip 1. I printed a digidesign paper onto my full scape paper before trimming to size.
Mark 2.75" down from the top of each outside edge and draw a diagonal line up to the first and last fold lines.
Cut these pieces off and use to trim the bottom of the card as shown below.
Card base will look like this when closed.
Tip 1. Make a belly band to hold card shut.
