One Sheet Top Locking Fun Fold Card

I'm always looking for new fun folds to try, and when this one popped up on my Facebook feed I knew I had to try it. Jan Radu, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from Australia posted this creative card design. Since Australia is on the metric system, she shared the Imperial system measurements but needed someone to confirm she had done it correctly. She did! Here's my result to share with you. 

 I have attached Jan's YouTube video below so she gets all the credit here for this card design I cased.

I used Evening Evergreen cardstock as the card base and the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper and its gorgeous designs for the variety of patterns on this card. The Christmas to Remember stamp set is the greeting on the circular tag. The edge die I used is long retired and I had to dig it out of my die collection as I had very simple edge dies.

Start with an 8-1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock. In Portrait format score at 2-1/8" and 6-3/8". Rotate the cardstock 90 degrees and score at 5-1/2".  Carefully cut and remove the lower left and right sections that are 2-1/8" x 5-1/2".  Save one of these pieces as it will become the added-on flap that will become part of the locking mechanism.

Trim that saved section to 4-1/4" x 2-1/8". On the long side, score 3/8" across. That 3/8" section will be where you will put a strip of Tear and Tape in order to wrap the flap over the top of the center section to make the locking mechanism.

You will need the narrowest stitched rectangle die for the sliding slot.

Cut three pieces of coordinated Designer Series Paper at 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".
One piece of Basic White cardstock cut at 3-3/4" x 5" for the inner card liner. 

Using the Layering Circles Dies, you'll need the second-largest scalloped circle, the second-largest plain circle, and the fourth largest plain circle for the stamped tag portion.

Hint - pay attention to the scallop edge on the outer and inner slider and align them so they look nice before pressing firmly to the two dimensionals.

Scotch tape whatever added decorations you would like on the back of the stamped tag before raising it with dimensionals and placing it on the sliding mechanism.

Jan's video below will provide the rest of the construction information for this amazing card.

Isn't Jan's design amazing? There are so many amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators sharing their ideas on YouTube you'll never run out of card ideas! 

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
