Fun Fold: Trifold

Today's fun fold is a trifold card. Let's face it, this isn't genius on its own. You cut a piece of 8.5x11" paper to 8.5 x 10.5" and score it at 3.5 and 7. Easy enough. What makes this card special is the angle and the fussy cutting. (CASEd here.)

To make the angle, I put one corner of the paper on the "ditch" of the trimmer. I lined up the opposite corner at 4"--you have to finesse it a little. Then, slice. I stamped a flower from In Full Bloom (SU) (retired). I fussy cut along the flower edges. The flowers are colored with watercolor crayons.

This would make a lovely card for mother's day or an anniversary or a get well card...say your favorite crafter spent most of the day in the garden pruning roses and clematis.

Another adorable card Nikki. Sounds to complicated for my old brain.

Beyond my abilities, but it is beautiful.

Very, very pretty. My craft partner is a passionate flower grower - she would love something like this.

Very effective with the cut petals.

Lovely card. I like the fancy edges.
