Diagonal Fold Card Tutorial

Today I am sharing a fun card and envelope tutorial that uses the Simply Scored and Diagonal Plate from Stampin’ Up! If you are visiting to see the long envelope tutorial, you can see it here…but stick around for a minute to see this fun fold card, too! We’ll start with the card front:
 
The finished card is 4″x4″ and opens like this:

To create this card, use a piece of 12″x4″ card stock (I used Marina Mist). Score it at 4″ and 8″ on the Simply Scored, then put on your diagonal plate and score diagonally at from the top corner and at the 8″ mark. Fold the straight score lines in toward the center of the card and then fold the triangle folds BACK away so that two folded edges meet in the center of the front of your card.

Cut your Designer Series Paper to 3.5″ square and cut in half diagonally to put on the front of the card inside the scored diagonal areas. I used the Nursery Nest DSP which has been retired, but try any of our fun NEW Designer Series Paper and create your own!

Next, create a 3″x3″ focal point (the baby feet on this sample) and when you are adhering it to the front of the card, ONLY use adhesive in the bottom left corner/triangle so that your card can open! For my focal point, I did the emboss resist technique with the Baby Prints stamp set: Stamp baby feet on white card stock using Versamark ink and emboss in white (or clear). Sponge ink over cooled, embossed image and wipe off the excess with a tissue: Voila! Your feet appear magically!

Of course, this card needs a special envelope, so I created a matching one with the Simply Scored tool and Diagonal Plate (for tutorial, click HERE):
