Woodgrain Birthday Bridge Card

Bridge cards are so easy to make and they’re more than just a card.  They become a piece of home decor!  The stand up beautifully when displayed, but the best part is that it folds flat to fit in a standard A2 envelope for easy mailing.

This fold has been called both a “bridge” card and a “U” card.   As you can see by looking down on the card as it stands, the silouette is a “u” or a “bridge”.  It is important that once the card is assembled, the corners are 90 degree angles;  otherwise the card won’t fold properly to fit in an envelope.  See the video below for details.

The second panel was left blank so the sender can sign the card there.  See video below for more details.

The center panel has the focal point (the balloons) stamped and assembled.

The right two panels are also mounted with woodgrain paper.  See the video below for details about the strap that holds the card together.
