I have had many ah-ha moments lately. The latest one was about the Cut-Above kits that I have stacked on my shelves from the CTMH Scrapbook subscription. What might this ah-ha moment have revealed to me? That just like the “done” pages I have from workshops with no photos, these kits are perfect for creating layouts quickly. They have some advantages over the workshop pages as nothing is assembled so it’s even easier to incorporate my photos with the papers & die cuts.

I didn’t like making these cards in the past because it always seemed like a struggle to decorate the front. Then, as I was creating my sample to familiarize myself with the fold I had an ah-ha moment. If I cut a 5 1/2 ” square of the pattern paper, cut it in half, and then trim the corner just like I did with the card, I would have the pieces I needed to decorate the angled parts of this card!
Here is a process video showing you how to create this card (Which I do consider a fun fold now)
Diagonal Trifold Card
Start with a piece of cardstock 9 ¾” x 5 ½”
Score at 5 ½”
Fold the corner of the 5 ½ x 5 ½ section in half diagonally.
With the corner folded down, trim the card to 4 ¼’ width (you should only be removing a small corner of the folded square and matching the width with the “back” of the card base)
Cut a 5 ¼” x 4” (or smaller if you want) for the “Inside” If you cut a 5 1/2 ” square and cut it in half, you will have the correct angles for decorating your card frong.
I’m excited to share a new CTMH Maker & YouTube Creators collaboration group Makers with Heart! We have joined our talents together to provide one place to find a variety of projects & ideas all featuring close to my heart products & tools.
To start off this party, we decided to highlight the new paper Smarty Pants from the New Core Catalog.
