This is such a fun fold card and really catches the eye. I used some retired cocoa cafe paper as my base. I usually use cardstock as a base, but this card has so many layers that I found I like the effect of using the patterned paper as the base and the card stock as the accent pieces. With the cocoa cafe paper it is patterned on one side and the other side is a plain color. I realized that I had not taken enough pictures to do this tutorial after I had sent this card so you will see a couple of different papers in the pictures. This is a good size card, 6 inches across
I used my Martha Stewart scorboard and marked the center of a 12x12 paper and then using a stylus scored a line straight down the 6 inch mark about 2 inches.
You will be making a mountain fold at the 5 1/4 fold and a valley fold at the 7 inch score lines.
Then just fold it up, fitting the flaps together to hold, kind of like closing the flaps on the top of a box.
