I have a fun fold card for you today. This is a triangle trifold card, and it is super cute! It looks tricky, but the Simply Scored makes it so easy.
Stamps: Packed for Birthday
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight
Card Stock: Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Other: Tempting Turquoise ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon, Simply Scored, Simply Scored Diagonal Plate
Because they are so fun, and I think you would enjoy making one too, I put together a tutorial, so you can make your own.
3 ½” x 10 ½” cardstock
3 ¼” x 3 ¼” cardstock (for inside if desired)
3” x 3” cardstock for front
17” of ribbon
Simply Scored score tool
Simply Scored diagonal plate
Ink and stamps to decorate
Score the card base at 3 ½” and 7”.
Switch to the diagonal score board, and score each of the outside squares. Make sure that the scores are going in the same direction.
Fold each side in towards the middle, then fold the triangles out.
Fold the card up, and tie the ribbon around it, with the bow on the right hand side. Glue your front square on top, being sure to place the glue only in the top left corner. Continue to decorate as desired.
When the card is opened, it will look like this:
