Boughs & Blossoms - Miura Fold Card - Video Tutorial

Today I'm sharing another Fancy Fold Card. This one is called a Miura Fold Card. The basic design is very easy to create - but the decorating does take some time.

I used the Boughs & Blossoms stamp with the coordinating Bough punch. I also used papers from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper pack. This paper pack is only available to buy with Hostess Rewards - which you earn when you host a party or place a larger order (£150).

The paper pack is a great price for 48 sheets of double sided 12"x12" papers. One side has Black and White designs and the other side has lovely bright colours.

I kept with the monochromatic look for my first card. I learned a lot while creating it too.

It's best not to measure the papers to try and get the angle cuts correct. If you are out a little with the scoring this can make them 'way off' in the fit. In the end I positioned the paper, marked it with a pencil and then cut it.

I used three strips of paper - one for each panel. Each strip was 3⅞" wide because I like a narrow border around my card. If you would like a wider border showing, just cut the papers 3¾" wide - or even less.

On the back there is a panel to write your message.

The card will fold to 6" x 4" and will fit into our standard C6 envelopes here in Europe. It will not fit into the US standard A2 envelopes though.

Here is the card fully opened out.

Because I made this version of the card quite bulky with all the decoration, I created a Box to hold it. You can find the instructions for this size Box HERE.

And here you can see what the card looks like using some of the reverse designs in the same paper pack. I love the bright colours!

All the stamped images were cut out by hand. This was really quick and easy to do for most of them. The two Crushed Curry fronds on the front panel were the only fiddly ones!

The Basic White circle has been embossed using one of the Stripes and Splatters 3D folders.

Again ... the back view - where you would write your message.

This is such a pretty card. I love how the top Flower peeks out onto the front when the card is closed.

And ... fully opened.

I created a Box for this one too :o)
