Good morning! Sure hoping you are having a great summer, enjoying the warm weather and all that comes with it. This week I am revisiting the Tri-fold card with a new design. I made this card for a dear lady that you probably know; Audrey from Cute And Some. She has been busy taking care of an ill family member for the last couple of months and has been away from crafting and blogging. All that know Audrey, know that she is a special lady that always has a sweet word of encouragement to those around her. So I had to come up with something special for her.
I absolutely love the Tri-fold design on a card as it is so unique, almost like a shape card on steroids so I had to do another! This design is similar to Amy at The Stamping Tree, I scraplifted a card that she made from my Gone Fishin' Shark Card. Amy did a wonderful design and I have been wanting to give it a try ever since I saw it.So grab a cup of coffee, turn on your Gypsy and let's get to work.
Now see with this easy template it is very each to make a card of your very own. Click HERE to down load the Tri-Fold template.
I wanted you to see the steps I take on some of these cards to make them stand out, expecially those with the old cuts with no layers.
See how nicely this card comes together. I ready all the little pieces first and then assemble it. I used a lot of different ink from Close To My Heart. I reuse the daubers but keep them in there own little case that is labled thanks to Ian over at A Newbie Crafter. Ian designed the lable with all the Close To My Heart Ink names for the dauber case and I love it.
I just love the inside of this card. I had plenty of room to write a little note to Audrey and I sure hope this card put a smile on her face.
With this close up you can see the little Micro Beads on the moon, isn't it awesome?
Here is what my finished cards look like. You can see I added a couple of hand drawn stars with a gel pen on the one on the right and I really like that. I hope you like today's post. I sure had fun making and designing this card and I am sure Audrey will love it, don't you? I hope you have a great week. I challenge you to make a card of your own this week and link it up. Click HERE for the template and HERE for the Coyote Card file and be sure to link up your card!
Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. Your comments inspire me to continue sharing with you. Have a blessed week.
