Four-Fold Blessings

It's so much fun to try a new fancy card fold, especially one that works well with coordinating prints of patterned paper.  I love this one because it provides so many opportunities for a variety of prints or for stamping multiple images and sentiments, and also because one of its panels is the perfect size for enclosing a gift card (the red panel in the photo below).

Graphic 45's Nature Sketchbook has become a favorite of mine, and it worked just great for this fold with a little adjustment of the card's measurements and some layering to frame the ATC sized designs.  For the stamped image on the final panel, I inked the stamp with Tuxedo Black ink, stamping off on a scrap of paper before stamping onto the card stock, so that the image would not interfere with the legibility of a handwritten message which remains hidden when the card is closed.

Here are the supplies I used:


  1. Really Lovely card! With a great fold!

    1. Thank you! It was fun to make, and easy!

    2. Deb, I absolutely LOVE this card. Did it come entirely from your head or did you follow a tutorial? I don't think I could re-create it unless I had a tutorial to follow.

    3. I followed a "four fold card" video that I found on youtube (via Pinterest)! It is a lot simpler than it looks, just lots of cutting because of all the layers.
