Today’s sketch challenge will be to make a file folder card.
For those of you that haven’t made one yet, I wrote a quick tutorial.

- Paper cutter with scoring tool
- Corner rounder
- 5 1/2″ x 7 1/4″ piece of cardstock
- 3″ x 5 1/4″ piece of patterned Paper (0ptional)
Score the long side of your cardstock at 4″.
Line the shorter scored side of the cardstock up at 3/8″. Cut from 4″ x 5 1/2″. Cut that part off.
Turn cardstock 180 degrees. Line the wider scored side up at 3/8″ and cut from 1 1/2″ all the way to 5 1/2″. Cut that strip off.
Take of the guide of the corner rounder and use it to round the corners on the short edged sides.
Put the guide back on the corner rounder and use it for the other corners.
Your file folder card base is now complete.
Step six (0ptional):
Cut your patterned paper to match your card front by cutting 3/8″ x 1 1/2″ off the top right.
Use your corner rounder like in step four and five to round the top three corners of your patterned paper.
Tape your patterned paper to the card front.
Decorate your card.
Add an insert if wanted.
