I love experimenting with different card shapes especially ones with dimension and have an element of surprise.
I recently filmed two videos for Trimcraft showing how to use really simple folds to create a card with a difference.
At first glance, they look like standard 6×6 cards but once opened their secret is revealed.
The exploding box card requires two 12×12 papers as the cover and interior are created separately. I have stamped on the inside of mine but you could choose other embellishments or designs.
The second card is made from a single sheet of 12×12 paper and a band wrapped round the outside to hold it together. Again the folds are simple but the finished card is very effective.
