Friday Focus – Folded Card #2

Morning, all!

For today’s Friday Focus, we’re continuing with another folded card idea from Folding Ideas for Cards and Envelopes. I was intrigued by the simplicity of this card idea. It’s basically just a dual-fold card with a locking device. In the book’s example, they had a flower as the locking device, however I used a large punched heart.

I used My Mind’s Eye’s Lost & Found Sunshine 6×6 paper pad, two heart punches from Stampin’ Up! (Full Heart and Heart-to-Heart), and letter stickers from Prima to create the card. I just love the colors in that 6×6 pad. :)


Many of you requested it, so I’m putting in an Inlinkz area at the bottom of this post. If you make a dual-fold locked card like this one, feel free to post it on your blog or in a gallery and come back here to leave a link. Can’t wait to see what you guys do! :)

Anyhow, enjoy!

  2. Hi Kristina!
    Again, a beautiful greeting card out of your hands.
    I like to look at all your videos and I must admit that I am impressed by the ease with which you make your products. THAT is close to me, very close. Always find the best possible solution.
    Still I will follow up and follow your directions. Thank you.

  3. I have to try this technique TODAY! You always inspire me. And I am so glad you get something for your referrals …. that only seems right as you direct us to the best stuff! Thanks for taking the time to share your love of card making to all of us that aspire to be HALF as good as yoU!

  4. I am loving your Friday Foscus folded card series. PLEASE keep it up. I LOVE this card. I have seen it before but watching you make it helps so much!
    So, again, PLEASE keep making the folded cards!
    Thanks for sharing

  5. Such a great card… And I tried to do my own! :)

    • By the way, I didn’t have a scoring board at hand and it makes such a big difference! :(

  6. Thanks for this lovely card! You are definitly the best!!

  7. Hi Kristina,

    thanks for sharing this idea. Your style inspires me (although I’ll never be able to create something that nice).

    You’ve definitely found a good replacement for Finally Friday. Thanks again.


  8. Thank you for this! I haven’t been able to create anything all week – just couldn’t “find it” in myself – until I saw your video. Loved the fold and thought I would give it a try – something new… Well, I have 5 different thank-you cards now, all using this fold. I’m going to take photos tomorrow in the daylight. Thank you again for your inspiration and your great work!!!

  9. It was fun designing a card using this fold. I made an origami tatos, Japanese for self closing paper pouch, for the closure. I wanted to post the card on your blog, but the system kept telling me it wasn’t a “direct link.” I’m new to blogging, so I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Anyway, thank you for sharing.

    • I just replied to your email. Hopefully it will help. :)

      • It worked! Thank you very much. I didn’t know that clicking on the title of my post would give me a specific address. I love learning something new everyday – LOL! Blessings.

  10. Love your card and your vids. thanks for the ideas.

  11. Oh my gosh! I totally love this card! I bought a MS Scoreboard on the weekend, and I think I have to try a card like this now! Love, love, love it! TFS!

  12. Love this card.
    i don’t know how you come up with all these great ideas!

  13. I have enjoyed the folded cards the last two Fridays. The book looks like it has good diagrams in it. Does it have the measurements on where to score, paper size, etc. Or are you just estimating that? I think I would enjoy the ideas from the book, but afraid I would have trouble figuring out the measurements if it isn’t in the book. Thanks for sharing.

    • No measurements. For the cards I’ve made so far, I did “tester” cards with scrap paper to make sure my measurements would work. You can print out the PDFs from the CD, though. The measurements aren’t marked, but you can use the printouts as templates. :)

  14. I’m soooo loving this series you do on Fridays! Thanks for sharing such awesome ideas!

  15. I am loving your idea of using that book to inspire you, it inspired me as well! Right after I watched your video, I jammed on it, and made a card, thanks so much!

  16. Love this new series! I am adding that little book to my next Amazon order.

  17. LOVING this fold series! And I love My Minds Eye–they’ve always been my fave paper company. Wish I could participate this week (thanks for adding the inlinkz). I just got a full-time job and forgot how little time I have when I get home at night lol. Readjusting.

  18. This is such a cute idea! I can hardly wait to try my hand at it!
    Thanks for the idea!
