Trifold card

This week's workshop wow challenge was Cami's trifold card. This was a fun and easy card! The card is 4 X 11, scored at 3 1/2 and 7.
TIP: Score just short of 3 1/2 to make the card lay flat better.
Next time, I may make this card taller. You could use up to a 5 1/2" wide piece of cardstock for a 4 X 5 1/2 finished card size.

Here you can see that you punch with the slit punch on the 4" section of card which is the back of the card.
TIP: Fold the card closed before punching so you can line the slit up perfectly!
Then punch a small hole in the slit to thread the ribbon through.


To add the wow factor to my card, I embossed all of my images in black and colored them with markers. I used the scallop oval punch to punch the hole in the middle section; this becomes the front of the card when closed. I stamped the bee onto a piece of white cardstock and punched it with the wide oval so it would fit into the scalloped oval window.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Flores Suaves, Perfect Punches; Paper: Whisper White, Bashful Blue; Ink: VersaMark, Markers: Sahara Sand, Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette, Marina Mist, Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi; Accessories: black EP, heat tool, scallop oval punch, wide oval punch, white taffeta ribbon, slit punch, hole punch
Happy stamping!

Very pretty card, I'm sure with the black embossing really makes it "pop".

Thanks for sharing,
