Sunday Scoring #9 Spring Fold Card

Spring_fold_card

This is a second card using the Botanical Gardens Range.  It uses similar scoring to the upright diamond fold card I made HERE 

Another card that folds flat for posting – but the reason for the name is that it springs up when removed from the envelope.  The centre panel is also a good size to write your greeting on the reverse.

The paper is the Botanical Blooms DSP 140583  which matches the Botanical Blooms Framelits  140625 that I have used for the flowers and leaves.  The stamp set 140757 Botanical Blooms enables you to stamp veins/leaves/flower centres onto the DSP to truly customise your paper. The stamp set, paper and framelits come as a bundle so you can save 15% on the individual price 140819

 

Card 5 ½  x 11

Score long edge at 5 ½,8 ¼

Mark top and bottom at 2 ¾

Score diagonally from the top mark to the bottom of the score line at 7 ¾

Score diagonally from the bottom mark to the top of the score line at 7 3/4

Mark the centre of the left hand edge and draw a line from that point to the score marks a quarter of the way to the right, top and bottom.

These are the cutting lines (solid lines on the diagram below)

Cut along the pencil lines to create a point

Crease and fold score lines as shown
M = mountain fold

V= valley fold

If everything was creased in the correct direction, it should fold up perfectly. A little bit of adhesive was added under the front point on the bottom to get it to stay upright

To decorate:

DSP two pieces 3 ¾ x 3 ¾ ” cut one in half diagonally for the spring fold sections

For flat section 5 ¼ x 2 ½ (adhere before gluing point in place

WW card for stamping 3 ½  x 3 ½
