Criss Cross Fold Card

Criss Cross Fold Card

Hello SOG fans!!  Rachel here today, and I am sharing a fun folding technique that’s a little out-of-the norm! 

I definitely abuse the good ol’ A2 sized card.  It’s exactly half of an 8 1/2 x 11, so you’re getting two for the price of one when you cut up your paper! (yes, I am lazy.)  But there is another fold out there that I really enjoy doing, and I first saw it over at Splitcoast Stampers.  (it’s all over Pinterest now too for you fellow pin addicts!) 

This is the Criss Cross card!

I used the Hey Kaylee clear set for this!!

Here’s how I started-

I cut two pieces of 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, because I wanted this to be a vertical type card, as opposed to horizontal.  Next you score each piece at 4 1/4″ like so-

Next I have cut patterned paper to fit on the parts of my card/envelope that will be showing.

I have also cut card stock to the size I wanted, so that it will easily slide in and out of the envelope.  I have added a brad, and some ribbon to give the receiver something to pull the insert out with.

Now for the super-fun part!!  Let’s add some Kaylee to this!!
