La - La Land Crafts - Tutorial Thursday - Star folded card

Hi crafty friends, it is Tutorial Thursday at La - La Land Crafts and my turn to show you something really interesting.

Do you love using Design Paper then this is the ultimate cardmaking tutorial for you! 
The star folded card looks a bit tricky but it is so simple and easy to make. Just give it a try and your cards a new twist!

You can use every colored cardstock as cardbase and for decorating any design paper, it is really up to you. The card I made for this tutorial is just one sample ;)

Here is another sample I made.

Materials needed:

Cardstock in 8 1/4 x 7 1/8" (21 x 18cm)
Score Board


Take your 8 1/4 x 7 1/8" (21x18cm) cardstock and make a mark at the middle - 4 1/8" (10.5cm) - of the long side

Draw a fine line from both edges to the marked middle as shown in the photo

Cut the paper along these lines, your paper should look like this

Mark again the middle - 4 1/8" (10.5cm) on all sides of your triangle

Connect the 3 points with another fine line, so you`ll get another small triangle within the big triangle

Draw a parallel line with 1 1/8" (3cm) height above all the 3 lines you had drawn before

It should look like this. Erase the fine line in the middle of your triangle

Score all lines

Fold all sides like shown in the photo

This is the look of your folded card without Design Paper

Cut 6 stripes 3 3/4 x 1" (9.5 x 2.5cm) from the design paper of your choice

Lay one stripe down on your card and draw on the left and right of your stripe a fine line like shown

Cut the paper

Lay the next stripe on your cutted stripe and use it as a template

Cut the paper. Do this with all the remaining stripes

Cut 3 pieces from your design paper in 2 3/8 x 2 1/8" (6 x 5.5cm)

Mark the middle on the longest side and draw a line from each edge, then cut the paper. Do this with all 3 pieces

Your pieces should look like this

Decide which side of your paper you want to use and will show up on your card.

I decided to use the red checkered side. Glue it onto your card as shown

Glue 3 of the stripes to your card

Turn the card and glue the remaining 3 stripes to the back of your card

I added some distress ink "Grounded Espresso" to all the edges

Stamp some of the notes and a small sentiment to the middle

Add your colored image

Copic Marker used on this image:

N0/1/3/5, R20/46, BG00/02/05, E21/23/25

Now let´s fold the card! Follow the photo instruction

When you have folded the last side, you need to put one edge of this side under another side so that your card can´t open from alone

Your star folded card is ready!

I hope you had fun crafting and I would love to see your cards!

La - La Land Crafts - November New Release - Day 4

Hey crafty friends, have you seen the NEW, really GREAT and BIG November Release from La - La Land Crafts with all that FANTASTIC stuff you really need for creating your christmas cards this year!

I couldn't hardly decide what to use first but then started with the cutest Gnome Santa stampset I have ever seen!

I colored Santa up with my Copic Marker, die cut 3 presents and 2 socks to get them also some color on and began to layer my card on that beautiful new paper!

The chimney with its snow topping was die cut too and I used a little bit of distress oxide "Grounded Espresso" to achieve a more realistic look.
