Tri-fold cards create the illusion of a normal card upon receipt, but open up to reveal several panels that help the card stand up for display.
I had a great deal of difficulty finding a really good tutorial for this card, so I am going to do my best to walk you through it.
- The Cardstock Base is cut to 5.5 x 12in.
- Using a scoreboard, score at 2, 4, 8, and 10 inches.
- Using your paper trimmer, cut at 1.5 and 4 inches from scoreline to scoreline.
- Fold back and forth several time to create a good crease. Your final folds should be mountain/ valley style.
- B&T paper is cut as follows:
*1.25 x 1.75in (cut 4)
*2.25 x 1.75in (cut 2)
*1.25 x 3.75in (cut 2)
*2.25 x 3.75in (cut 1)
For mine, I used the retired Skylark paper. This paper has some writing on it that I wanted to feature in my card. It was sort of a paper waster to cut out the words and phrases, but I really liked what they said.
My final embellishments was stamping using several retired stamp sets. I kept the whole thing relatively flat, because these cards would be mailed. But, the stamping still creates a big impact.
