My Tri-Fold Card
Good Morning Ladies,
Welcome to a new year of Challenges, I thought it would be fun to step out of our comfort zone and try some different card folds, shapes as part of our Monday Challenge. So here is our first card....
A Tri-Fold card, it is quite a simple fold, the hardest part is cutting the card, so here is my Tutorial for you, I hope it helps.
Cut your card at 9 3/4 inch X 6 1/2 inches
Put left corner on edge of trimmer and
Bottom right corner on 2 1/2 inch line & Trim
You end up with this shape, you now need to score at
3 1/4 inch and 6 1/4 inch, giving you, 3 equal sections
Now fold I section forward and one back, this gives you
The Tri-Fold look.
Cut your chosen patterned papers to same size, then trim
Down to fit each panel, this way you know that the angle will
Be the same along the top.
Remember to make sure you cut your decorative papers
The right way round for the base card, (the first one I cut I got the
Angle going the wrong way) Oops!!
Adhere your panels and embellish.
You don't need to use decorative papers, you could use stamps
To decorate your card.
Et Voila !!
Now, was that easy to follow? Is there anything I can make clearer, please don't hesitate to ask. I could do a video if you prefer, I will do that with future challenges.
I can't wait to see your cards, I will showcase them on Sunday as we usually do.
Have fun with this challenge ladies,
Bon Voyage Janet, I bet you can't wait to get back to Marigny, I look forward to your
International post, I do hope Dobbie hasn't forgotten the way ??
Love and Hugs to all,
