Creating unusual cards is artistically challenging and enjoyable, and equally fun for the recipient to open! This is one of those fun cards which can be just about any length you want it to be! The directions are for the shown card, but feel free to change dimensions and styles. Barbara has also created a video to show how to create Fan Fold Cards.
