The 12 Projects of Christmas 2020: Project #5
I have seriously always wanted to try an arrowhead fun fold card. I've seen them pop up occasionally on Pinterest, and I just love the look of them. Arrowhead fold cards come in all styles and designs as they are decorated. I decided for mine and for the 12 Projects of Christmas, I really wanted to make an elegant arrowhead fold card. I immediately thought of the Poinsettia Petals bundle, because it is an extremely elegant-looking flower.
Next up: Designer Series Paper. Hmmm...What would be pretty? Why yes! The Feels Like Frost DSP on page 42 of the August - December Mini Catalog. Soft, beautiful colors with photos of real winter wonderlands on one side and silver foil with white designs on the other side. Perfection.
With the stamps and the DSP chosen, It was only natural to decide on some silver embossing for this card, too. I stamped in Versamark and embossed the three sizes of poinsettia petals in silver, then cut them out with the dies. When I layered those silver on white petals together, I thought it needed something else. Vellum card stock petals to fit in between the silvery white ones was the perfect solution!
Seaside Spray card stock:
4 1/4" x 11"
Score the card in half at 5 1/2". Make tick marks at 2" and 4" from the bottom edge on both the left and right sides of the card stock. Make another tick mark at the middle of the bottom edge of front of the card. This tick mark would be at 2 1/8". Connect the tick marks (and edges of the half-way score line) on the sides to the tick mark at the bottom middle with a score line. Accordion fold (two mountain folds and a valley fold) those score lines to create the arrow head card.
Whisper White card stock and Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper:
4" x 5 1/4"
Cut into triangles by cutting the rectangle from the top left to the middle bottom, then again from the top right to the middle bottom. These become layers to decorate you card.
I'm super happy with the results of my very first arrowhead card. Attempt #1: Success! Do you do better when you see someone else do the project before you give it a go? Then here. Watch the fifth of The 12 Projects of Christmas so you can see an arrowhead card made right before your very eyes. Then give it a try! I promise - you'll enjoy the process, and you'll love the results!
