A Trapeze Card, my first attempt

A couple of weeks ago I noticed instructions for a Trapeze Fold card on the Trimcraft website. I love trying new card fold ideas, so when I saw that the latest challenge at CD Sundays is a Shaped Card, it seemed like the perfect time to try it.


I used paper and elements printed from the Debbie Moore CD "Crystal Dreams" and I've been trying to work out why my card looks more like a square-gone-wonky than a trapeze fold. It's only now, going back to the instructions on the link I shared with you, that I've realised I mis-measured the scoring points on the fold line of the card. But at least the trapeze shape in the middle still looks right!

  9. That's a new fold to me too. The miss measuring is totally what I would do, that's why I tend to buy dies for fancy folds. Cara x
