Today continues Christmas in July, so thanks for joining in! All this week I’m sharing projects made using our upcoming July-December 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog. Today, I have a fun arrow fold card to share. This card design is perfect for clearing out some of your paper stash, and if you’re a papercrafter, you probably have a big one! Because of this card’s size, it’s also perfect to slip directly into a Christmas or birthday gift. No envelope needed is needed, or you can create your own if you like. Let’s take a look at how to make this neat card.

How to Make An Arrow Fold Card
Below is a list of measurements and materials you’ll need to make today’s project.
- 6″ x 12″ Piece of Designer Paper – I used a piece from the Painted Christmas pack
- 5″ x 5″ Cardstock
- 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ Cardstock
- Holly Jolly Stamp Set
- Seasonal Labels Dies
On your 6″ x 12″ base, score on the long side at 6″. Make a mark at 3″ on the side that will be the bottom edge. This is the center of the arrow. Next, along the sides, make marks at 2″, 4″ and 6″. Score from each of those marks to the 3″ center point.
Lay your paper so the inside of the card is face up. Begin by folding in on the 6″ diagonal score line, fold the 4″ score line out and the 2″ score line in — accordion style. You can see how I did this step in the picture below. A bone folder is nice to have for this step to get crisp folds. You can use some cardstock to finish off the inside of the card and decorate the front as desired.
