Good morning everyone, what a beautiful day we have again here in Essex.
Today I thought I'd share with you all a really easy folding card.
The card fold is a tri fold there are many different ways of doing this fold, you can if you like cut the panel that stands out at the front right across the card, but I chose to just cut across the first 2 panels, I thought it turned out quite nice, hopefully you think so too and you'll give it a go.
This is what the card looks like from above. I have got a few pictures for you to see, hopefully this will make it a bit easier to follow.
The great thing about this card is you only need card, ink and a stampset, oh and of course glue.
The stampset I've used for this card is a beautiful stamp called Blossoms in Bloom that is coming in the new catalogue on June 3rd it comes with a die set but for this card you only need the stamps.
The first thing you need to do is cut and score your card base, I've used Blackberry Bliss for mine as I love the richness of this colour.
All measurements for all cutting and folding are in the diagram above.
Now with a piece of whisper white card cut to 26.8cm x 9.7cm you need to stamp all over it using one stamp and one colour at a time, the colours I used are above. I started with the large flower stamp first and then filled in the gaps with the smaller stamps.
Now cut your pieces as above, I started from the left and worked across, but it's not going to be any different whichever side you start from, as we've already cut the piece to the exact size for what we need. (You can if you like cover a whole sheet of A4 cardstock with your stamped images and then cut out what you need.
These are the 2 colours I used for the sentiment pieces which are:
Pumpkin pie cardstock
2pc - 4.1cm x 4.6cm
Whisper white cardstock
2pc - 3.7cm x 4.2cm
Now all you nee to do is glue all of your pieces in to place and that's the card finished. This card will fold flat and should fit in to a 4" x 4" envelope.
Hope you enjoyed this project any questions please do contact me, I'll be very happy to help you.
Enjoy the rest of your friday
Take care, stay safe and keep crafting
