Momenta Shaped Wing-Fold Card with Scor-Pal

Today I will be sharing my project that was featured on the Scor-pal blog as part of this week's Scor-pal and Momenta blog week. Of course, if you missed this project or any of the other great projects from the Scor-pal team you'll want to hop on over there and see what's been going on this week. Be sure to leave comments on each post from this week for a chance to win some great prizes. Entry deadline in 8am Monday, July 2, so there's still time.
I recently saw a tutorial for a very cool Shaped/ Folded card and have been waiting for just the right moment to try it out.  The tutorial that I used was from Marianne Skjelstad’s blog. She didn’t have a name for this fold, but I thought that a wing-fold shaped card was a good description. The Scor-pal Design Team got to play with products from Momenta this week – and I used the BFG Pyramid Pad.

First, cut your paper 6” x 11 ¾”. Using your Scor-pal, score at 3 ¼”, 5”, 6 ¾”, and 8 ½”.  Fold as shown.

Trace the shape that you want to use for your wing on the two outer panels of the card, and cut to shape.  For my card, I traced the outside of my Cheery Lynn Designs Oval Doily Stacker One die, so that it would be slightly larger than my die cut.  Ink the edges and add decorative die cuts, and patterned paper panels.

I used a smaller die from the same set for my front panel and decorated it with matching stickers from Momenta. This is the card folded into closed position.
