Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and easy way to create two cards at the same time with the Angle Fold card! With the holiday’s quickly approaching, finding cards that are easy to make and make multiples of, can be a time saver! When it comes to the Angle Fold card, you really have to make two cards at the same time with cutting the DSP and cardstock. When creating today’s card, I stamped, cut, die cut, and punched enough to make two cards.
First start with this design from the Come to Gather DSP for the base layer, you will make your first cut at 4”, turn the DSP to make your second and third cut at 5 ¼”, and you will have a 1 ½” x 4” piece of scrap, cut this in half, which will give you two pieces at ¾” x 4”(This is if you are cutting a new piece of DSP). For the two pieces of DSP measuring 4” x 5 ¼”, you will cut them both diagonally, but in different directions. The reason for this, is that since you are using one design of DSP, but both sides, flipping one side over will not fit the cardstock card base:
The cardstock card base is Crumb Cake cardstock and you will use a full sheet. First you will SCORE in half along the 8 ½” side and the 11” side (4 ¼” and 5 ½”). Then you will have to line the cardstock DIAGONALLY in your trimmer, so that each end (or tip) of the cardstock is lined up in the track, you will have to remove your scoring blade to get the cardstock to fit. I used the new trimmer for this and the trimmer left an “indentation” at each end from pressing the arm down to cut, however, I used my bone folder to burnish the ends flat. Do not burnish the score lines on the cardstock until you place your DSP, one card will open one way and the other will open the other way. I used liquid glue to adhere the DSP, this gave time to adjust the DSP if needed:
For the card front:
1. I used a sponge dauber with Crumb Cake ink on the tree trunk stamp, used another sponge dauber with Soft Suede ink around the edge of the stamp, and stamped this on Whisper White cardstock. I fussy cut the tree trunk out, heat embossed the sentiment in White Emboss Powder, and used the sponge dauber with Soft Suede ink around the edge of the cardstock. I did this process twice so I would have two of these.
2. I used the Sprig Punch to cut out of Silver Foil Sheet and cut the sprig in half. I did this twice.
3. I used the Crumb Cake Twine to make a bow, one for each card.
4. I used the Silvery Shimmer Metallic ink to stamp the large and small leaves on Pretty Peacock, Mint Macaron, and Crumb Cake cardstocks. The leaves are then cut out with the coordinating dies.
5. I used the small leaf die from Beautiful Layers to cut out of Silver Foil Sheets, two for each card. This DSP reminded me of this die:
Since the tree trunk is the center focal point, you only want to adhere one half to the DSP. I adhered the two sprig pieces to the back of the tree trunk and then adhered the lower half to the DSP:
Use two of the leaves to help as a “closure”, but they need to be placed on the opposite side of the tree trunk. I adhered the leaves with a dimensional, so they acted as a tab to fold the tree trunk under:
I used glue dots to adhere the twine bow and the two foil leaves to complete the card front:
For the inside, on a 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink, the small leaf in Silvery Shimmer Metallic ink, adhere one of the leaves, and adhere one of the ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom:
Here are my completed two cards:
Isn’t this a fun card?? I just love it when you can make two cards at once, especially for the holidays!! When you make this card, you just need to keep in mind what you are going to use for tabs, whether it’s circles, ovals, squares, or like I used, leaves.
