Fancy Fold - October, 2012

Make this fun-fold card by adjusting the clear acrylic plate on top of the scored card before it is die-cut with the Adorning Labels Die.

Base:  5 ½ x 8 ½ 

Score at:  4 ¼, then score one of those sides in half at 2 1/8”. Place the center point of the die on this 2 1/8” mark.

Place the cardstock on your Big Shot platform placing the clear acrylic plate over the area that you want to cut out. The acrylic plate edge meets up with the 2 1/8” score mark and just this part of is over the card stock and die. The rest is hanging over nothing as it runs through your Big Shot.

Cut 2 of the die-cut two images so that no matter if the card is open or closed, you see the image.

The inside die-cut is just a bit larger than the front one so that it layers wonderfully.

Helpful Hints:
**Cut Cajun Craze Piece so that one corner is cut off, to make the inside layer lay nicely.

**Inside:  Stamp off once for Crumb Cake circle stamp accent.
