Fancy Fold Pop up Card Tutorial

Fancy Fold card
I had a ball incorporating pop up elements into this fancy fold card.
Fancy Fold card
This is how the card looks closed.This card is inspired by my friend Merry's zig zag card.Hers has more folds,a belt and is much more elegant than my fancy fold pop up card.

 Fancy Fold Card Tutorial
This is a super easy type of card to make and for those who make elegant cards..this has such a lot of potential. I unfortunately dont make good elegant cards perhaps because my assistant and critique is 6 years and almost all the cards we make are for her friends or teachers!!
Fancy Fold card tutorial
Choose a rectangular piece of card stock..mine is 6 x 12 inches
Any length  you fancy will work...easier if its a multiple of 3 as you will have to divide it into 3 equal parts!
Since mine is 12 inches long...I  first divided [scored] it into 4 inch segments.
Then score a line to halve the outer 2 segments as shown above.
This translates into Score at 2,4,8 and 10 inches if you have a scorepal
Fancy Fold card tutorial
Measure around 2- 2.25 inches above the lower border of the card at either end and join to the top of the 4 and 8 inch score lines as shown by the white arrows.Chop off the  outer triangles as shown.

Accordion fold as shown in the picture to make your Fancy Fold card !

I added a Santa and a truck on each of the inner folds of the card to make a double pop up card.
Blogger pals are the best and some such as Merry, Loz ,Helen and Hussena keep inspiring me again and again and I keep wishing to replicate everything they make!!.Thank you so much ladies!
Also a special Thank you to all my blogger pals for dropping by and constantly encouraging me by leaving wonderful comments.
