Photoplay DIY Home Edition Masculine Card Tutorial for Make & Take Tuesday
Hello, Friends! Today we’re taking a little break from holiday creations to share this cute Photoplay DIY Home Edition Masculine Card Tutorial with you. Welcome to Make & Take Tuesday! Our “soon to be” son-in-law just had a birthday, and this collection could not be a more perfect match! He’s a really clever, handy and handsome fella with no end of good ideas, talents and abilities. I had so much fun creating this special card for his birthday that I thought you might like to see how it came together.
This 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ double Z-Fold card base calls for a bit of paper engineering and “out of the box” thinking. But no worries! I’ve done all of that for you! I started with Photoplay’s new Easel Card Kit. Instead of making a standard easel card, which is one of my favorite designs, I saw how easy it would be to change up the fold just a little in order to make a fabulous fun fold card folio. I’ll show you how in the video tutorial below.
Hidden Pocket Card Folio
The cool thing about this card design is the addition of a hidden pocket/flap feature on the inside. This makes for a fun surprise, and also adds room for more fun “stuff” inside the card.
Chris chuckled when he saw the “I’ve got the tool for that” ephemera on the hidden pocket insert. “That’s true,” is what he said. Did I feel like I was winning? Oh, yes, I did!
Two Pockets Are Better Than One!
In addition to the hidden pocket/pull out page, I created a little gift card pocket in the center of this card folio. You can never have too many pockets, right?
This is such a great masculine paper collection, especially when you have a handyman on your card making list! And, you can use the engineered card base with any collection from your stash to change up the theme. How great is that?
