I saw this Star Fold card on pinterest and knew I just HAD to figure out how to make it. This is the second one of these cards I have made. The first was a baby shower card. Who wouldn’t love getting this card?
This card either fits in a 6 inch square envelope (best fit) or an A7 envelope in a pinch. I made my own with the baby shower card and it was a nightmare. I hate making envelopes! Either way the card is impressive looking open or closed.
The Christmas star fold card paper needs to be two sided so a solid color works best. Patterned paper adds a nice touch for the slanted rectangles and the triangles but it would have to be a subtle pattern. Gold foil for the embellishments adds that extra bit of bling but patterned or solid paper would work too.
This card uses my font CMV Pinstripe. It is one of the fill in fonts I created just for design space. If you want to know more about them, check them out here.
Cutting the Card
The little holes in the embellishments are sometimes hard to get out. Make sure the Cricut cuts all the way through. If you need to, cut it a second time by pressing the C again before you remove the mat from the machine.
Keep track of the little red circles. I lost a couple but it looks fine without them. Also some of the pieces are very thin so be careful taking them off the mat
Assembling the Christmas Star Fold Card
First you need to re-crease all the folds on the base card. Open and close it a few times to make sure it works.
Next glue the embellishments to the triangles and rectangle like pieces. Be very careful to get the trees and the bells right side up. I screwed that up with the bells but it looks ok.
Then glue the shapes onto the base card. Make sure you stay between the fold lines so the card works properly.
And you’re Christmas Star Fold Card is done. Enjoy
