Today’s video features a fun and fancy card – what I’m calling a triangle fold intersecting card. This is also known as a diagonal fold card . The video walks you through, step-by-step how to create the cuts, folds and intersection. I used circle punches for the closure but you can easily change it up using die cut shapes. Another fun feature of this fold is that it creates two cards with two scores lines and a single cut.
Special thanks to my customer Anna Garmon for the idea! In March, after my mother-in-law passed away, she created a similar triangle fold intersection card. I loved the intersecting closure and wanted to share with you how to create it.
