Using host reward Pattern Party DSP- masculine

I first saw one of these fun fold crossover front cards at a recent Stampin’ Up! event I attended. I thought it certainly had the ‘wow!’ factor and immediately began an internet search to find how to make one. I didn’t know what it was called though. It seems it has been called by a number of different titles, such as ‘Diamond Point’,  ‘Triangle flip’, ‘Crossover Arrow’ to name a few. Anyway I have decided to call it ‘Crossover Triple Point’ card. 

The card itself is actually relatively easy to make and just by changing a few elements it can be made for any occasion as well as with a feminine or masculine look.

TO MAKE

Start with a cardstock base 10″ x 5″. Score landscape at 5″.  Turn portrait and mark the halfway point, 2.5″ . Use trimmer to cut from this point diagonally down to the scoreline on each side to make a point. Cut a square of DSP  4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″. Mark the top edge at the halfway point (2 3/8″) and trim from this point on each side diagonally down to the bottom corners. 

 

Adhere each piece triangular piece of DSP to the corresponding triangular pieces of cardstock that you cut away from the base card and adhere the larger triangle of DSP to the folded down front triangle of the base card. Cross the side triangles over and adhere as per pictures above. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ and adhere this to the inside of the card.  Embellish card front as you wish.

    I absolutely love these cards. They are so easy to make, and they are economical in their use of card stock. They look really effective too.
