Pretty Side Panel Fold Card

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing my first official Design Team project for Trimcraft.

I wanted to make a fun fold card and came up with these Side Panel Fold ones.

As always I try to break down all of my tutorials so that everyone can make them, this one may look complicated but really it isn’t, all I would say is that precision is key for making this card.

The card fold is really different and very eye-catching with all the different sides and levels.

The whole card folds flat and fits into a 5″ x 7″ envelope.

The colours in this collection are so so pretty, I can’t wait to start making gift bags and boxes with it.

To make these cards you will need…

1 piece of 10″ x 7″ cardstock.

For all the scoring and cutting please follow my tutorial below along with the template attached.

1 piece of 4.3/4 x 6.3/4 white cardstock to mat the frame part of the card.

1 piece of 6.1/2 x 4.1/2 pattern paper to layer on top of your frame.

1 piece of 3.3/4 x 4.3/4 to mat the main inside of the card.

1 piece of 3.1/2 x 4.1/2 to layer on top of your mat, this is the piece I’ve embossed.

2 pieces of 2.1/4 x 6.3/4 white cardstock to mat the front and back of your side panel.

1 piece of 6.1/2 x 2″ of pattern paper to layer on top of your mat.

If you want to make the bookmark and pocket, you will need a piece of 2″ x 6″ and then decorate how you wish, for the pocket you need a piece of 2.1/4 x 1.1/2 and a 2″ X 1.1/4 mat to decorate.

Sentiments and embellishments to decorate how you wish.

Check out my full tutorial below showing you how I made it.

This card has such a nice profile and stands up really well.
