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)
Pencil
Scissors
Glue
Eraser
Score Board
Ruler

Instructions:

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!
