You Will Need
1 piece of card stock 11 3/4 Inch x 5 1/2 Inch
2 panels of patterned paper 1 1/2 inch x 5 Inch
1 piece of plain paper 5 Inch x 3.5 Inch
1 piece of patterned paper 5 Inch x 3.5 Inch
Scoring tool
Glue/ double sided tape
Paper trimmer
Ruler

Embellishments of your choice

I Used

Torn Edge Nesting Dies 
Big Shot
A class Act Stamp and Die set by Clearly Besotted 
Hunkydory Score Board 
Spectrum Noir Tri-blend Markers
Papermania Embossing powder (In Superfine Silver) 


Instructions 

Begin by cutting your card stock to 11 3/4 Inch by 5 1/2 Inch
Score at 2, 4, 8, and 10 Inch along the length 
Place a tiny mark at 6 Inch on both edges and using your ruler score from the middle point of the middle column to the corner of the first score mark (see picture below)
 
Trim 1/4 off the 1st panel

Fold the original 4 score lines, the vertical ones as valley folds

The diagonal score lines then want to be folded as mountain folds.
Cut 2 panels 1.5 Inch by 5 Inch and stick these to the outer columns with the glue of your choice

In order to cut the 8 triangles, first cut a piece of plain paper stock to 5 Inch by 3 1/2 Inch. Mark this at 1 3/4 Inch on the short side and 2.5 Inch on the long side. Draw a diamond 

Cut the diamond out and keep the 4 triangles from the edges. Next cut the diamond into quarters.

Stick these to the triangle panels on the card 

Cut another piece of patterned paper 5 Inch by 3 1/2 inch and mark in the same way as you did with the plain paper. Cut down the diamond and apply to the front panel

Then embellish however you wish. I used the big shot to die cut 2 different sized torn edge rectangles.
I stuck one vertically
I stamped, coloured and die cu an unbranded teachers set I had and used these on the front panel. I then heat embossed the 2nd torn edge rectangle horizontally with the sentiment 'teacher you are a class act.
 This card can be adapted to what ever you have in your stash and is super quick to make but a real eye catcher. Hope you have as much fun making it as I did creating it
