I'm Giving 'Tri-Fold' Cards a Try!!!

Happy Saturday All! I am up bright and early today. It's a gorgeous day outside and I am loving it! I love to wake up to the beautiful sun shining in my window! As you know, my husband and I are currently in Alabama visiting family. Well last night, my little nephew spent the night with us. He and Brandon slept in the room adjacent to mine. They were so cute laying there all peaceful and sleeping this morning. I just had to take a few pix. It was so sweet. But after I did that and woke up I realized that today is Saturday and that means another wonderful tutorial from Sheila over at "She's A Sassylady!!!" Today, Sheila is sharing with us how to make a tri-fold card! Believe me, these are so much fun!!! If you'd like to see the video's and give these a try, go HERE for the direct link.

Here is my first try on the card design. I have already designed another one of these on my Gypsy and am hoping to make that soon. Maybe today, so stay tuned! :)

"Give A Hoot" Tri-Fold Card
Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio
Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Die Cuts With A View
Ribbon: Ribbon FX (Hobby Lobby)
Glitter Glue: Stickles (Ranger Industries), Crystal
Pearls: Queen & Co.
Electronic Cutter: Cricut (Provo Craft)
Cartridges: Plantin' Schoolbook, Hoot N' Holler
Software: Gypsy (Provo Craft)
 As you can see, my card opens on the left hand side first. Once open, it reveals an owl.
 Then you open up the right side and it reveals a house. I added a block near the bottom in order to have a place to write my sentiment, note, etc.
 The back of the card is the back of the house. I thought about adding windows and doors, but I did not. Maybe next time. I just added my stamp to finish off the card.
 Up close of the front of the card. I used patterned paper from 'The Green Stack' for my branch, leaves. I love the bark looking paper in that stack, so natural. I used it on the branch. I tied a bow on the left hand side and attached that with my Liquid Scrap Dots. I also added a bit of glitter glue to the word 'give' and to the 'eyes' of the owl.
 To show a bit of the dimension...
Again, I hope you'll hop on over to "She's A Sassylady" and play along with us this week! I can't wait to see all the takes on this type of card!!!
As always, thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you all have a marvelous weekend! Enjoy time with your friends and families! And Happy Scrappin' to ya!
Pin It!
