Metric Tutorial for Small Square Double Display Card from A4 card

Mens Cards 044

Finally – a tutorial as promised. Sorry for delay but it really has been one of those weeks! So now this counts as a MAKE IT MONDAY post…. whereas I thought it would be my first Fancy Fold Friday post….

So this is the Double Display card made from A4 card instead of 12x12.

This is also designed as a “Forgiving” version of the card…. as it covers up any slight inaccuracies in the cutting and scoring needed to make it.

I know a few of you struggled with that part & had to do a bit of trimming of the fancy fold sections to keep everything neat on the top and bottom - so then I realised  that it could be solved by having a front square panel slightly larger than the fancy fold back part of the card… so here it is….
