Folder card

This week we have the challenge at RoP to make a folder card. There are many ways to do one, but I want to share how I made my DT folder card for you. I got the inspiration when I first started with cardmaking (fall 2006) from the very talented Camilla in Norway.

Step 1:
Take your cardstock and cut it at 5 1/2" (14 cm)

Step 2:
Score the cardstock at 3 15/16" (10 cm)

Step 3:
Score the cardstock and 9 7/16" (24 cm)
Step 4:
Fold along the score lines.
Step 5:
Cut two stripes of the cardstock -
measure 2 2,5/16" x 2 3/4" (5.5 cm x 7 cm)
Step 6:
Score the stripes at 6.5/16" (1 cm) and then fold
each piece like an accordion
Step 7
Add sticky tape to each side of the "accordion" and attach to
the shorter end of the card
Step 8
Attach both "accordion" pieces to the cardstock

Step 9
The folder should look like this after the "accordion" pieces have
been attached.
Step 10

Add your different layers of DPs your main image, blings, ribbon, flowers etc. It's only your imagination that sets the limit. You could also decorate the inside of the folder with matching DP as well.

Final result

Here's what my final folder card looks like.

Hope you enjoyed this little tutorial. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Also - please check out the rest of the DTs interpretations of a folder card. There are so many ways to make one - and this is only one way.

Wish you a wonderful week and I hope to see many of your lovely folder cards in our RoP challenge.
