Metal Guitar Tent-Fold Card

Celebrating a birthday with music is the way to go. Making a Metal Guitar Tent-Fold Card?! Even better!

Even though this card looks large and will stand out, it folds flat to a 4 1/4 ” square and fits into an envelope. I didn’t need extra postage to mail it or anything extra!

The guitar is highlighted with the easel in the front, stamped randomly with lots of notes for a musical background.

Beyond just the cool color combo of black, gray, and red, the silver foil results in a a bright look that brightens up a card with a dark base.

Wanna learn how to make this fun-fold card? The hammered metal foil is easy to make and adds some fun to this rockin’ card.

Steps to make this Metal Guitar Tent-Fold Card:

A video showing how to make this card is below. Additionally, I took a few detailed images of the card so you can see how simple to make it really is!

Here’s a closeup of the easel:

The easel is able to be popped up and stand upright because it tucks on top of the sentiment, which is elevated with dimensionals.

While creating this style of fun-fold card, I find it easier to work with it flat. In the video, I’ll show it folded before we even start decorating for the visual. Here is an image of the Flat layout:

The silver foil looks so fantastic when it’s embossed! Additionally, the hammered metal is a perfect compliment to the guitar and “you rock!” stamp. Together, the result brightens up a dark card with a black base.
