My Version of the Flexy Fold Card

Claire for Scrap My Way called yesterday to see if I might have the Score, Fold Create book. There is card in there that she had seen on a blog. I did not have the book. After looking at a few sites that had completed Flexy Fold Cards it appears that the card is scored and cut into 3 sections. I thought why not just make a SVG template for the card. Now making a template I was limited to the width of the card. I do think that mine is maybe a little over a inch smaller in width. That's fine with me at least I want have to glue the sides to the back.

I really like the style and how the card bows. This is done by the slits that are in the panels. That was another reason I would prefer to have a file and not have to cut these slits by hand. I'm not sure if there are slits in the original card but it sure looks like it from a pic I was able to find of the pattern in the book. My file also contains all the panels and they too have the slits. I added the top border to smaller panel, this is welded.

You could decorate it anyway you choose. The file does not contain the flowers etc. Just the card base and panels. If you would like the files just let me know and I will email it to you. Use the contact me section at the top.

Here it is. Makes me think of spring. All pure and clean with the pretty little birds.
