Todays card is another unusual folding card, I seem to be on a roll at the moment with making different moving cards.
I thought that the beautiful centre die from Sues Austrian collection Vienna die would make a really fun aperture and fold. Therefore I created this card to show it off.
It is very hard to explain how this one works however I am hoping the pictures will explain it a little better. I scored a sheet of card into three, folded two of the flaps against each other a die cut the centrepiece over the fold. I repeated the folds for a second piece of card however this time I added the die cut piece over the fold, so that, when closed you can't see the aperture.
I used the third flap from each sheet to attach to the back of a piece of card cut to the same size to make the full card. Therefore the card has a back and 2 separate fronts a little like a gate fold I suppose however each of these folds back on themselves. This next picture shows this a little more clearly!
It is easier to see in this picture of the card folded flat. I then went on to layer up, with foam tape, the different die cuts in the set alternating with the taupe and chocolate card.
I decorated the sides with border strips taken from the Austrian collection Borders and tags set, added a sentiment form Creative Expressions and some ginger seam binding.
