Welcome to the Creativity Abounds Blog Hop. We are international group of Stampin' Up!® demonstrators who have come together to share our ideas with you. We blog hop on the the 3rd Wednesday of the month and this month our theme is the Dandy Garden suite. Thank you for joining us today and please enjoy the hop!
This is a fun fold called the Impossible card. When I first saw this fold it did indeed look impossible but it actually s very easy once you understand how it works.
- Start with a 4-1/4' x 5-1/2" piece of cardstock
- Find the midpoint of the 4-1/4" side and score. This is the red dotted line in the picture above.
- Starting at the fold find the middle (2-3/4") and cut a slit from the fold to the outer edge.
- Starting at the fold measure 1-1/4" from the fold and cut a slit to the outer edge. Repeat along the other edge
Note: The 1-1/4" measure is what I used so that I could use the dragonflies to connect the 2 panels. You can change the dimension to fit your project.
This what your card will look like when all the scoring and cutting is done.
The easiest way to assemble is to hold the 3'' panel in one hand and with your other hand flip one of the 1-1/4" pieces to the other side. If this is confusing don't worry I have a short video below that shows this step.
Check out the video below. You will be amazed how easy and ingenious it is and that it isn't really impossible.
Isn't it amazing how simple it is?
I connected the panels with stamped and punched dragonflies using the Dragonfly Garden bundle. You do not have to connect the panels. I like to do this as it makes the card very stable. The panels are decorated using the Dandy Garden 6" x 6" DSP. Behind the center panel I attached a piece of Basic White CS so I can write a little note.
I hope you will make your own Impossible card, now that you know that it really isn't impossible.
