This week, over at The House that Stamps Built, it is my turn for POTW - I had a couple of things in mind - and finally decided on Double Point Card.
I have seen this all over Pinterest but never took the time to try and make one. Little did I know it was going to be so easy. Warning: lots of pictures.
Let's gather our supplies:
I choose to do a Valentine card as that is our next "card sending" holiday and Repeat Impressions has some really cute images. I used 4316-I Flowering Hearts
and on the inside I used 9707-B Love U Candy Heart
I stamped my main image on watercolor paper and colored with Derwent watercolor pencils and then used a light blue wash around the image.
For the card you will need two pieces of cardstock for your base and then two pieces of designer paper cut at 4 in. x 3 in. scored on the 4 inch side at 1 inch. If you have a pattern paper make sure you imagine the finished card - and make sure that they will be opposite (you will see this in the next couple of pictures.)
Cut your focal image and your layering image using a shaped die.
After you have scored on the one inch mark fold each one of the sides (3 inch sides) into the center and meeting the score line on the bottom and the folded triangles meeting in the middle. Looking at the picture really explains what it will look like when folded. Makes sure the triangles don't overlap as it will cause too much bulk. I used a bit of tape runner to hold the triangles down.
Glue or tape along the inch fold line and glue to the back of the inside layering piece as noted in the picture. In this picture I think you can see what I was talking about when I referred to the direction of the designer print. Make sure your pattern direction is eye appealing - (the top pattern down and the bottom pattern up) and glue or tape your focal image just on the top point. ( I then used Velcro Mini fasteners 3/8 in. dots as seen below, they are available at Amazon, WalMart, Michaels and I think I got mine at Hobby Lobby. ) The velcro dots hold the top focal image in place. You could also use small magnets.
Hope you give this a try - it is a special fun fold that has a lot of opportunities.
