*Triangle Trifold*

I've seen this style of card on several blogs lately and decided I would go print off Beate's tutorial and give it a shot. Much like my friend Tracy, I wasn't sure how difficult it might be so I was more doing a trial run before using stuff I really love. But, much like Tracy, I love the card I came up with!

This card is super easy with such amazing results. I did discover that I made a little mistake.... i attached my ribbon to the back of the card with double sided tape and also stuck it down under the bottom left corner of my focal image, which then does not allow the card to open up fully. But it's still OK.









It's hard to see, but the inside of the card is stamped with the flourish from Doodle This and then with the sentiment Thinking of You in Almost Amethyst Ink.


I'll be playing with this card design some more I think as it went together a lot more easily than I thought it would. Thanks so much, Beate, for posting the tutorial for the rest of us!

items used:
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Almost Amethyst and Always Artichoke from Stampin' Up!
Ink: Almost Amethyst Classic and Whisper White Classic from Stampin' Up!
Patterned Paper: Heidi Swapp
Ribbon: Texas JodiLynn's Ribbon Share
Images: Stampin' Up! and Impress Rubberstamps
Flowers: Primas
Bling: self stick gems (come as a word) from Michaels

Great card Nancy. I was noticing all these trifolds on blogs as well. Definitely something I need to try but first I have to cut out all the cardstock for my wedding invites!

Nancy that is super awesome. My daughter gave me mini scrapbook made similar and I am going to give my hand at one for a Mother's Day giveaway. I don't have many visitors to my blog, but hoping that "If you build it, they will come"

Nancy, you did a lovely job on this card. Beautiful choice of colours, DP, stamps and gotta love the primas! :) I've spied both Beate's design and Tracy's...I've gotta try this! I like making cards a little different from from the norm.
