Guest Design Card for Creative Creases: Double Tucked Corner Fold Card

I have the privilege of being the Guest Designer for Creative Creases Challenge #50! Debbie, congratulations on your 50th challenge! That's quite a milestone! I love fun fold cards and have found lots of lovely card designs and inspiration at the Creative Creases Challenge. If you enjoy making fun fold cards, please share your creations here:

The idea for this card design comes from Iced Images on YouTube. You can view the video about this card style here: 6x6 Double Tucked Corner Fold Card - YouTube. I modified the measurements in the video slightly and created a cut file in my Silhouette Design Studio software so that I could cut out multiples quickly. I made several similar cards for the shut ins I send cards to regularly by using the cut file I created for this card. 

Last fall I become a hobby Stampin' Up! demonstrator under Debbie Mageed, and in January, Debbie generously gifted me my choice of a SU! bundle for being in her downline. I chose the Framed Florets bundle, and since Sale-A-Bration is currently going on, I was able to also receive a free set of gorgeous design papers along with the bundle. (If you are interested in any SU! products, now is a great time to purchase them since you can receive free paper or stamp sets with every $50 you spend. Here's a link to Debbie's blog where you can find more details about Sale-A-Bration:  Host Code ( I mention all this because I decided to use some of the stamps and dies from the beautiful Framed Florets bundle along with some of the lovely Sale-A-Bration design papers for this card. Here's a link to the Framed Florets bundle if you are interested in this beautiful stamp and die set: Framed Florets Stamp & Die Bundle by Stampin’ Up! (

After cutting out the card base and layering pieces, I chose a scripture word art for the focal point. I purchased the word art from the Silhouette Design Store, and since it didn't come with the reference, I added that to the word art and sized it to fit within the frame I wanted to use before doing a print and cut with my Silhouette Cameo 4. With Valentine's Day around the corner, I thought I'd choose a verse about God's love. What a comfort to know the Lord's love never ends! It's infinite! And thankfully it's not dependent on our actions but on who He is! Praise God that we never have to worry that He'll stop loving us no matter what we've done or failed to do. 

I used several stamps and dies from the Framed Florets bundle to frame up the focal point, stamp and die cut a floral spray to the top right and left inside the card, and frame up and decorate the sentiment on the back of the card. I colored the stamped images with Copic and Chameleon alcohol markers. Final touches were adding 3 adorable puffy heart stickers around the focal point and tiny gems to the stamped flower centers inside and on the back of the card.

  18. any chance of measurements?

  19. Hi, Carrie, I absolutely love your creation, from the folds to the message. It's so unusually striking. I don't have the equipment to make a file, so I'm wondering if you would be so kind as to share the measurements of where to cut and fold. I'd be so grateful, as would my card's recipient, I'm sure!! Thanks in advance.

    1. Diana, I’ve linked the video tutorial I followed for this card in the second paragraph of the blog post. Iced Images explains all the measurements and instructions in the video. Hope you’ll give this card design a try!
