Arrow Fold card featuring the gorgeous Boho Indigo product medley

My thanks go to my lovely friend, Satomi, for bringing this gorgeous fold to my attention and to Sam Calcott of Mixed Up Craft for creating it!  

I've basically followed Sam's tutorial, with just a couple of minor alterations that embrace our metric measurements.

I used an A4 sheet of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut it to 30cm x 10.5cm scored and folded in the middle to create a folded card measuring 15cm x 10.5cm.

Following Sam's tutorial, I placed the fold at the top and then made little pencil marks on each side at 3.5cm and 7cm.  I also made a pencil mark on the bottom edge at 7.5cm.  Then, having opened up the card so that I only scored the top layer, I carefully scored a line from the centre point on the bottom edge to each of the marks on the side and also to the top corners.  So that's 3 scored lines on each side, meeting at the centre point at the bottom of the card.

I then burnished the scored lines and folded as shown in Sam's tutorial.

To create the triangular layers, I cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock to 14cm x 10cm.  I made a little pencil mark in the centre of the bottom edge (at 7cm) and then carefully cut from each top corner down to that centre point.

For the layer of patterned paper, I cut a rectangle 13cm x 9.5cm.  Placing a pencil mark on the bottom edge at 6.5cm, I repeated the previous steps.

Instead of using the remaining triangles of paper to decorate the inside of the card, I cut rectangles 14.5cm x10cm for the Night of Navy and 14cm x 9.5cm for the Boho Indigo paper.

I then adhered a Very Vanilla label cut with one of the Painted Labels dies, stamped with a sentiment from the Four Seasons Floral stamp set.

I had so much fun and the fold is so gorgeous that I then set about making another!  This time I used Whisper White and Gray Granite cardstock, Peony Garden Designer Series Paper, Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder, Peony Dies and Petal Pink cardstock.  I used Basic Gray and Sahara Sand cardstock for the leaves.

I hope you've enjoyed these cards and I do encourage you to visit Sam Calcott's tutorial.

Next week, I'll share my square version of this Arrow Fold, which I've also adapted from one of Sam's tutorials.

Thank you for visiting.
