A Year of Card Techniques / June 2017 / Basic Card Folds Using Double Sided Paper




Welcome to A Year of Card Techniques Blog Hop where each month we feature a different card technique. We’ve assembled a team of card makers who range from new to advanced, so you’ll see a great variety of cards and ideas.

June‘s hop is devoted to basic card folds; featuring drapery/curtain fold, peek-a-boo fold or double-z gate-fold. And we’re adding a twist of using double-sided paper. We hope this gives you lots of ideas and will inspire you to try these card folds yourself...and pull out that double-sided paper as well! If you would like to check out our past technique hops, you can do that here:



January-Shaving Cream Marbleizing
February-So Sketchy

April-Stamp Set Showdown

We have an amazing sponsor this month, Candy Spiegel.                 Please take a moment to check out all the crafty goodness             on her blog,  Candy Scraps.

And the awesome prize this month is:

Now on to my Cards for this Month:







2 different Sentiments but same layout of card.






 Once I scored my double sided cardstock at 2,4,8 & 10 and cut diagonally from the
8" score down to the 2.75" mark and from
the 4" score down to the 2.75 mark on opposite side, I had triangular pieces for the front of my card.

 I cut the matted cardstock for the interior portion of the card.  Olive,
red bard, and champagne.


I stamped my image on a top layer die cut & stamped image
on the inside to finish off the card.
