Topic: Fantastic Folds
One group challenged a 'star card' and another challenged a 'triangle' card. I decided that a star card has so many triangles in it that I would use it for both challenges.
I've never done this structure before and now I can say I have done it many times. However, this is the only card that resulted as I had so many problems with the measurements that the rest of the papers were creased every-which-way and ended up in recycling. I STILL didn't get them quite right on this as you can see at the edges underneath the blue triangles. Those should be perfect 60-degree corners not open holes.
One other result was that this made the card too large to fit in a 6 x 6 envelope for mailing. I'll have to make my own envelope if I want to send this to someone.
Over all, I kinda like it. I'll have to dig out some truly ugly papers to fuss with until I can get those measurements right. THEN I can make one that doesn't need patchwork on the front to cover up the mistakes and it will fit in the envelope.
Here is a view of the card when it is opened. I did not do any decorating here.
Yes, you can see inside where I double-creased, trying to fix those measurements. Sigh. Back to the drawing board.
