Hi everyone, today I have this Impossible Card to show you.
Now it’s not Impossible to make but other people will really wonder how you made it, just as my husband did!
This clever card is made from one piece of 5 x 7 cardstock and with just a couple of cut lines and a twist you will have this awesome card.
I first came across this last week on the Trimcraft YouTube channel and then saw that they have a craft challenge with this design over on their website, I’m going to add mine into the competition as the papers used are the Trimcraft, First Edition, Tropicana paper packs.
The “Happy Birthday” sentiment I used is by Dovecraft available at The Works.
The flower die plate I used is from eBay, which no longer able to find.
To make these cards you will need…
1 piece of 5″ x 7″ cardstock, you need to mark with a pencil at 3.1/2″ along one of the long sides, then on the other long side, you need to mark with a pencil at 1.1/2 from both ends, then on the two short sides mark with a pencil at 2.1/2. Then need to join these two 2.1/2 marks creating one pencil mark through the middle of the card.
Now draw a line to that middle pencil line from the 3.1/2″ mark and the two 1.1/2″ marks, just like the image below.
I promise you this is easy and watching my tutorial below will make sense of it all if my written instructions sound complicated.
Heres my full YouTube tutorial.
This folds flat to a 6″ x 7″ card when flat. You can make an envelope for this using the Envelope Punch Board following the instructions for 6″ x 7″ card size.
I hope you like this fun fold card from me today, it’s very easy to change in size and your cut lines can easily be adapted to suit your needs.
I will definitely be making more of these and already have some ideas to change it up some more!
