Tutorial: Downton Abbey Ladies' Card Fold

jo1

Recently design team member Jo McKelvey made a fabulous 'Ladies' Card' and we've had several questions about hwo she did it. She shared a tutorial on her blog and allowed us to re-print it here! Make sure you pop over to her blog to see more pictures of this ladies' card and the masculine version she created!

Supplies (used on the card above and to demonstrate the fold in the tutorial below):


Jo's directions:

Step 1: Take a piece of A4 card and using your Ultimate Pro, score lines for a gatefold card.

Step 2: Turn the card and trim some away - I never measure this I just decide where to cut by eye.
