You Can Create It – International: Fancy Fold Tutorial

Published by under cards | Oct 02 2019

Every month a little packet of papercraft supplies becomes the basis of our challenge with the You Can Create It – International (YCCI) team. Our mission is to turn those elements into a card, or gift packaging, or some other finished project.

The September kit included:

  • half A4 sheet of Merry Merlot cardstock (10.5cm x 29.7cm)
  • half A4 sheet of Rococo Rose cardstock (10.5cm x 29.7cm)
  • 6″x12″ Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • 40cm Gathered Ribbon – Rococo Rose

Extra supplies were included in the quarterly kit but I didn’t need them this month. They included a couple of A4 sheets of Soft Suede cardstock, a copper dotted treat bag, a sheet of ‘Fluid 100′ watercolour paper and a full bottle of Stampin’ Mist stamp cleaner.

Fancy Fold Card

The cardstock pieces were long and narrow, so I immediately wanted to make some kind of interesting ‘fold’. I little experimenting with the Simply Scored board and Metric Scoring Plate resulted in this….

The two long pieces of cardstock were scored (see measurements below) and overlaid together so there are fold-out flaps on both sides.

And when it’s closed and the ribbon tied it looks like this…

Would you like to have a go at making this card?


  1. Cut and score Merry Merlot cardstock

    Trim cardstock to 10.5cm x 28cm, score at 14cm and 21cm

  2. Cut and score Rococo Rose cardstock

    Trim cardstock to 10cm x 20.5cm, score at 13.5cm

  3. Overlay the two scored panels and adhere together

  4. Fold panels

    Refer to image

  5. Add 40cm ribbon around card
    Use leftover Rococo Rose panel for front of card

  6. Embellish as desired

    Add Designer Series Paper and stamped images
