Fun Fold Friday – Ready to Ride

Happy Friday! I made this card with friends earlier this week and I LOVE LOVE this fun fold. I hope you do as well.

Here’s the card “opened”:

And here’s a side view of it opened:


Paper Measurements:

  • Black Cardstock:
    • 2 each @ 4-1/4 x 8-1/4. Score each the same: along the long side @ 2-1/4 + 4 + 6-1/4
    • 1 @ 4-1/4 x 8-1/2. Score long side @ 4-1/4 Fold in half, burnish.
    • 1 @ 4-1/4 x 4-1/2. Score on 4-1/2 side @ 2-1/4 Fold in half; burnish.
  • Pumpkin Pie:
    • 4-1/8 x 4-1/8
    • 2 each 2-1/8 x 4-1/8
    • 2 each 1-5/8 x 4-1/8
  • Designer Series Paper (DSP) :
    • 2 each @ 3-1/2 wide x 4 high. Cut one on 3-1/2 side @ 2 and other on 3-1/2 side @ 1-1/2 (Note: you can cut both on 3-1/2 side @ 2… depending if you have a pattern or not.)
    • I also used DSP pieces from the Ready to Ride panel sheet and a motorcycle I die cut out of the Ready to Ride motorcycle sheet to decorate the cover and the inside cover.
  • Very Vanilla: 4 x 4


  • With your 2 main pieces, fold each Mountain, Valley, Valley. Fold the right panel back on each and put an X on that panel (see above).
  • Keeping the X panel folded back, turn the bottom piece 180 degrees so that the first layer has the Mountain fold on the left, and the 2nd panel has Mountain fold on the right and the two X’s butt up against each other. Then add Tear & Tape going across the two X panels like so:
  • Flip over the base, and adhere (using any glue) the 4-1/4 x 4-1/2 layer (that is scored at 2-1/4) on the back layer, centering over the gap that was left from the X panels. This is your back side. Flip back over.
  • On the front, remove the protective covering of your Tear & Tape, add more adhesive, and adhere the folded 4-1/4 x 8-1/2 (scored at 4-1/4 and folded in half) on top of the two X panels with the fold at the top. NOTE: your mini card will be wider than the 2 X’s put together. Just be sure to center your card over the two X panels, and between the two closest score lines.
  • The end! Add all of your layers: DSP layers (which I also layered with the Pumpkin Pie) as well as decorate your front and inside.

If time allows (ha! maybe someday) this is one I’d like to do a video on. Until then, I hope these directions and photos are clear enough if you want to give it a try.
