Panel Fold Cards

Framed Centre Panel Card

Hi everyone, I re-visited the Centre Panel Card I made a while back and made this framed version.

I made this during a Facebook Live and originally took a triangular shape out of both sides and then decided to completely gut each side instead.

The open areas look beautiful backed with vellum or embossed acetate, or fill the space with stamped images and die-cuts as I have.

I also used my edge dies on this one, which really gives it the WOW factor.

You have space on the back to stamp and write your message.

1 piece of 9′ x 7′ card for the main card base.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.

The will both fold flat and fit into standard 5′ x 7′ or 6′ x 6′ envelopes. If you add a border design then you will need to make you own envelopes. I have a easy to follow tutorial here.

Thank you for visiting today.

Happy crafting
