Easel cards are one of my favourite folds as they're so easy to make and always look fabulous when open for display. I decorated this one with one of the little ducks from the Hello Ducky set, which I coloured using the no-line technique.

A Little Joy

Colours that sit opposite each other on the colour wheel, such as red and green, always look striking when placed together. I've kept the rest of my card simple by using plain white cardstock as a contrast.

Tutorial - Arrow Fold Tent Cards

Arrow Fold Tent Cards are a fabulous combination of slimline and arrow fold. They only require a couple of pieces of cardstock for the base, and then some patterned paper and a few embellishments to decorate.

1. Start with two 5" square pieces of cardstock. (The starting size of the cardstock is the size of your finished card, therefore, if you want a 6" card, start with two pieces of 6" square cardstock. If you'd like a 4" card, start with two pieces of 4" square cardstock, and so on.)

2. Place one piece of cardstock on your scoreboard and score at 21/2". Fold along the score line to form a slimline card. Set aside.

3. Take the second piece of cardstock and mark the half way point (21/2") along three sides.

4. Position the card so the unmarked edge is farthest from you. Score from each of the top corners to the centre bottom of the cardstock. Score from each of the sides to the centre bottom of the cardstock. Refer to the template below for correct placement.

5. Fold along the score lines - one valley and one mountain fold on each side. Set aside.

6. To decorate, trim a piece of patterned paper to 43/4" x 43/4". Mark the half way point along three sides in the same way you did in step 3. Instead of scoring, cut the paper along the same lines using a trimmer, scissors or a craft knife.

7. Trim another piece of patterned paper to 23/8" x 47/8" to decorate the front of the slimline card. Secure the patterned paper to the cardstock with glue or double sided tape. You'll have two long triangles left over, which you can discard or use for another project.

8. Flip the large square of cardstock over and apply glue to the long, thin triangle section in the middle of one side (see photo below). Fold along the score line to secure the cardstock in place.

9. Add glue or tape to the other side of the large, thin triangle and fold along the second score line. This will secure the smaller triangle in place. Repeat for the other side to form your arrow fold.

10. Secure the arrow fold to the front of the slimline card, lining up the point with the bottom edge and keeping it centred. See photo below.

11. Add a sentiment, image and embellishments to complete your card.

Everything Papercraft - Aperture Cards

The word “aperture” means an opening, hole, or gap, so an aperture card is any card that has an opening, hole or gap as one of it’s features. Paper crafters use a range of tools to create apertures, such as cutting dies, punches, and circle cutters, and this means that we’re able to produce an endless array of fabulous designs. Apertures can be decorated to resemble windows, doors, or even peep holes into secret gardens, and they’re a great way to give a little sneak peek into the card or to help bring design elements together.
