Friends Never Fade Amazing Folding Card

I love the colors of this Amazing Folding Card, as it was called on the SU! Alaskan cruise, though on the cruise we used Sweets for the Sweet stamps and different colors. Yes, mine uses Greenhouse Gala dsp, which is now retired, but the Friends Never Fade and You're a Gem stamp sets are still current.

To make this card, cut a piece of card stock 8" x 8" and score at 4" on two sides. Then score from one corner to the opposite (only one diagonal line). Use a bone folder to crease the folds really well because the easier your card stock folds, the easier you'll find getting the corners into place.

From there simply cut smaller squares (3-3/4" square and 3-1/2" square) for the inside panels - or you may use photos for a really unique card! I cut my ribbon at 27 inches and position it so it ties at the side.

This Amazing Folding card is actually one-third of an Accordian Scrapbook, aka Squash Book. It works with 12" x 12" card stock (for 6" squares) too. So try one and have fun with it!
