How to make an Explosion card
Cut a strip of cardstock 30,5cm x20cm long. Make a fold line down the centre, and one at 5cm and 10 cm on either side. Fold the left-hand corner down to the middle line and score. Repeat with the right hand side. Once you have done this, turn it over and the other way round and repeat the previous step. If you look at the last photo you will see the fully folded card out flat. You need to squeeze the upper and lower small triangles together so that it looks like the shape above this text. This allows the front large diamond to pop out and be the front of your card! The 2 outside 5cm strips are then folded forward. Cut out different coloured design papers for each section of the card and glue in place. Decorate as you please. I hope this is clear for everyone? Any queries let me know and I will try to explain it another way......I hope!!
