I’ve been playing with upcoming new products again. And I learned a new fun fold – the arrow fold card! It’s a classy looking card that’s easy to put together with just a few angle folds and cuts. This fold was introduced to me by fellow demonstrator, Verla Carpenter who shared this how-to video by Samantha Clayton at Mixed Up Crafts. I altered Samantha’s measurements to work with a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card base size so the card would fit into one of Stampin’ Up!’s medium envelopes.
Because some projects and cards are easier to explain with a video, I shared this card this past Wednesday during my Facebook Live Online Paper Crafting class. I then uploaded the recorded version of my Facebook Live video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), check out the products list below, scroll through the close-up photos, and then let me know if you have any questions.
As I mentioned in the video, the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set, the Magnolia Memory Dies, and the Magnolia Lane Designer Paper are only available to current demonstrators or those getting the Starter Kit right now. (Click here if you want to purchase them in a Starter Kit.) Then on June 4, 2019, they will debut in the 2019-20 Annual Catalog. Yay!
Products I used… See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store. Again a few of the products are not available quite yet. Those links will not work until June 4.
- Whisper White Cardstock
- 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored at 4-1/4” and folded in half
- Scrap for stamping and die-cutting large magnolia
Mark the bottom front of the card at 2-3/4″. Mark the each of the sides of the front of the card at 2-1/8″. Then follow the directions in the video for connecting these points and the top corners of the card front to make your score lines.
- Magnolia Lane Designer Paper (new)
- 5” x 4”
Mark the bottom of the designer paper at 2-1/2″. Then follow the directions in the video for cutting from this point diagonally to the top corners to make your three triangular pieces.
I hope you enjoyed what I had to share today!

ANNUAL CATALOG NEWS
Due to recent supplier issues (and other factors), Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current die-cutting machine and trimmer: The Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer are retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the opportunity to research and explore replacement options. But there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available. You will not see these items in the upcoming 2019-20 Annual Catalog that debuts June 4, 2019. Click here for more information.
