This foldable card is fun and easy to make and can be assembled for just about any theme you need it for. It can be made in just a few easy steps. Start with an 8x8 inch piece of cardstock.
Fold it in half. Using a bone folder will make your creases nice and deep...giving your card a much better look.
Open your piece of paper, and turn it 90 degrees. Fold it again in half. Once opened, your page should have four boxes.
Turn your paper over and fold it so that you make a large triangle.
Open the piece of paper and turn it back over to the original side. It's now time to decorate the inside of your card. In the two square boxes, adhere two pieces of white cardstock. They should measure 3 6/8 inches each. These are the places that you could write to the recipient of your card. However, this would also be a great place to place photos, don't you think?
In the two remaining spaces, use stamps to finish decorating the inside of your card.
We're now ready to close the card. To close it, bring the folded pointy edges together. This is probably as clear as mud, but the picture below should make it much clearer.
Lay the card on its side, and we'll decorate the front.
To begin, I ran a 3 6/8 inch piece of matching cardstock through the Big Shot using the polka dot embossing folder.
I then taped it to the front of the card.
Now for my favorite embellishment...ribbon! Adding ribbon to the card will make it not only very pretty but will also keep the card closed.
To finish the birthday card, I used stickers from a Stampin Up Simply Scrappin kit.
I hope you like this project. If you make one, I'd love to see it!
