Impossible card? Not really.

Have you ever stumbled across a card tutorial, and gave it a wide berth just because of the name? I saw my first impossible card about a year ago and thought there’s no way. It’s a bit of a head hurter, but really, when you get into it, it’s not that challenging. You just need to wrap your head around how it works.

I love fun folds, and they can take your design from ho hum to WOW. This one is no different.

It literally takes one score, and three cuts to get this card made.

Start with a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of cardstock cut according to the diagram. You’ll also need: patterned paper (Earthen Elegance) cut 4 pieces at 1″ x 2″ and 4 pieces at 2 1/4″ x 2″. Basic White- cut two at 2″ x 3/4″, for the sentiment, and one at 2″ x 3 1/4″ for the image. Early Espresso cut 2 at 2 1/4″ x 1″.

Adhere the patterned paper to the base as shown. Stamp the image (Doggone Friendly from the January to April 2024 mini catalogue). Colour and adhere to one side of the large rectangle. The back will be used for the writing, so if you are using a dark cardstock, cut a layer that can be written on.

Lay the card on the table, and bring one of the large rectangles to the opposite direction of the other (check out the video). Stamp the sentiment on the white, and layer it onto the Early Espresso. Put adhesive on the edge of the Early Espresso, and adhere to the card as shown on the front and back.
