Trifold with a trifold center Paper Doll style

Updated: Jan 13, 2023

This variation of the Z fold card has pop out trifold center. It has a lot of wow factor but once you know where to cut 2 lines and score the rest falls into place. The card base can be cut from a single 8 ½ x 11 sheet of paper. You can choose to have the large or small side of the card be the front of the card. The card will have a different folded look depending on which you chose.

There is a SVG and templates for the 6 x 6 card base and the mat and layers below. You will also find a You tube video demonstrating how to put the card together. The Video also uses Diamond Press Paper dolls and a Gina K embossing folder to decorate the card.
