Peaks and Valleys Fold Open

I ~love~ this fold I found on Tonya Allen’s blog here:
. Tonya found the idea on SCS by sheltyx1.

It looks difficult but is surprisingly easy to create. Tonya created a nice tutorial if I don’t answer all your questions….my version is:

•Cut a 5-1/2 X 12 inch piece of cardstock.
•Score vertically at 2, 4, 8 and 10.
•Cut horizontally 1-1/2 inches from the top and bottom edge from the 2 inch score line to the 10 inche score line.
•The top and bottom rows should be folded Peak, Valley, Peak, Valley.
•The middle row is creased Valley, Peak, Valley, Peak (Don’t use the bone folder on this one as each fold isn’t used).
•The middle row is covered by the 2-1/4 X 3-1/4 inch image mats (shown in polka dot on my example).
•Embellish as desired 🙂
I changed the height of the card also….My card is only 5-1/2 inches high, so that it will fit in a medium SU! envelope. That makes the center portion only 2-1/2 inches high rather than 3 inches, but it was still easy enough to use this way.

I hope this works…the site didn’t like my first attempt.

What do you think?
