Crazy fold card

Does anyone know what this card fold is called? Because I don't.

And I have to confess that it is a blatant CASE (copy and share everything) ... if only I could remember where from....

.... ah yes, it was from a lovely blog called A New Song by a US demonstrator called Amy. Now don’t get excited because we don’t have many of the products you’ll see on her blog in the UK catalogue – fingers crossed that some of them will be they’ll be winging our way on 1st October.

The card looks complicated but is actually very simple – it’s just a piece of 12x12 cardstock strategically cut and scored. The measurements are all there on Amy’s blog so I won’t repeat them. It fits in a standard C6 envelope, by the way. At some point in the future I will try to convert the card to make it from A4 cardstock, which should still fit in a standard envelope, but it means you'll be able to mass produce them cheaply if you want to. But remember the old saying: don’t hold your breath!

    I like the warm colors you chose. It's not already starting to feel like autumn over in England, is it?
