Scor-Pal and Pink Paislee Week

It's always fun to try different fancy folds on cards and the trendy papers from Pink Paislee's Portfolio Collection seemed perfect for this angular folded card.

WorldWin Cardstock
Clearsnap Smooch Spritz
Clearsnap Color Box Wild Hare Pigment Ink
Spellbinders Labels Twenty-One

Cut card stock base 6" x 12". With the long side against the upper fence, score at 3", and 9". Turn a quarter turn and score at 2".  Cut as shown below.

Score from the upper inside corner, to the lower outside corner on both sides.

Fold in, towards the center.

Fold the lower edge, back up towards the folded edge, so they line up , and fold using your Scor-pal tool.
Your card frame is now ready to embellish.

Ink all edges using grey ink.  Cover all panels on the card base with coordinating patterned papers that are cut 1/4" smaller than the card base.  For the center section of the card, cut a 6" x 6" piece of cardstock.  Trace the shape of the Spellbinders label around the top, and handcut, just the top edge. Cut the patterned paper with the same die. and layer it onto the base. Layer other paperson the card as shown and decorate with the Pink Paislee embellishments.

When the card is folded and ready for the envelope, this is how it will look.

When the card is opened to display, the fancy folds will serve as a stand, to hold it up.

Gini, I am always looking for new folds and this one is awesome! It reminds me of a marquee. Great job!
