Learn how to make a fancy fold valentines day card
Hello! We are going to show you how to make this card and it is very cute because it is like an envelope in a card all in one even though I would still use a regular envelope for mailing it but it is so cute. Let me show you how it opens. See it does tucks right behind there and then you open it up and then you have your little card in the center there. And you are going to make – just using an 11 x 11 piece of designer paper so let us get started. I am going to use all my retired winter green designer paper. I want to use my new cutter I got for Christmas- my new fiskers cutter, I have yet to use it but I have been told that I use my cutter upside down so I am going to attempt to try this cutting with my new cutter, I am kind of nervous. So okay, so you are going to cut your card at 11 x 11, so I am going to go ahead and do that. Now, what you are going to do – so depending on what side you want to have your front of your card be, you want it faced down so I am going to use this side, I am going to fold it corner to corner first like that. If it does not get perfect, you can always trim it. So then you are going to take your cutter again and you are going to score at five and a half to the point, give or take, it is quite different for me doing it this way. I am going to score that five and a half and then I am going to flip it over, I am going to score it again at five and a half. Then you are going to score that three inches from the point. I should have trimmed that off but of well – so scoring it three inches, I am going to flip that over again and score that in three inches also. Then from the tip, you are going to score that at three and a half. I got to make sure this is straight. So now, you are going to see a little corner, I do not know if the camera is picking that up or not but there is a little corner here when you get your scoring done, you are going to cut that and I need to go get my scissors. Let us cut that away – just cut right in the score line. Now you are going to finish all your score lines and make sure they line up good. Do the other side. Now, the corner piece – what you are going to do is you are going to take your corner that you scored at three inch score line, you are going to fold that – do you see how that is done? You just put your finger in there and you are just going to lien that up with the first corner there, score that and do the other side as well. So it is going to make your little pockets. Then you can score this over too but you are actually going to fold it the other way. Then you are going to flip your card so after you do your diamond shape scores here, flip it over and you are going to fold it inward the other way. Then this is going to flip over here and then you are going to tuck that in right here. Then you can tuck right in it. But let me go back and show you because you are going to want to put some adhesive around here. I am going to put it in the corners here – just a little strip. Do not make very much and the one on the top then you just close it back up. Now I am going to adhere this one shut because I am not going to use this one for anything. I am going to put some adhesive on the other side. Now for this side, this is the side you are going to tuck this in so you do not want to put the adhesive too close to the pick so you want to kind of go inside, just put enough to seal it and then you are going to seal it on this side also. So that is you card, and you are just going to tuck in inside really easy and then you just tuck right at it. So this is what your finished card look like.
