Good Company & Summer Nights

At a stamp club meeting last month we were taught a fun fold called Double Diamond. I've done some fun folds called this but this one is different! I used an old Photo Play paper pack called, I think, Squeeze in Some Fun.

This card requires a 5" x 7" envelope and I added a sticker (from Echo Park's Summer Fun paper pack) to it as I have to have a coordinating envelope for the swap this will be in. 

Here is the template I used:

I used a 5" x 12" piece of card stock. When following this template please pay attention to where the score lines are.

I marked to the top and bottom of my piece of card stock at:  1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2", 7 1/2", 9", and 10 1/2" with faint pencil marks. DON'T SCORE YET! 

(NOTE: If you don't have a large enough score board mark and score half then flip around and score the other end.)

Now score and mountain fold the 3", 4 1/2", 7 1/2" and 9" lines ONLY

Mark the 2 ends at 2 1/2". CUT from the center to the first lines as shown. These are the red lines on each end.

I only cut one end at this point. Only the vertical lines have been scored at this point.

Score diagonal lines from the top 1 1/2" mark to the bottom of the 4 1/2" and from the bottom of the 7" mark to the top of the 10 1/2" mark.  These are the dotted diagonal black lines on the template. These will be valley folds.

Now, fold to look like this:

You may have to play with this a bit but it should fold relatively easy.

I then decorated my center panel and added some fun stuff on the ends. Everything was fussy cut and the two end pieces were layered to make them pop more.

You can cover the triangles of the folds if you desire but you'll have to play with the sizes.

I hope you give this a try. It looks intimating but if you take your time and pay attention to the template it is pretty cool.
