There are several ways of making a trifold card and you can make it as simple or as fancy as you wish. Of course, I went for an easy version. Partly because I'm feeling lazy... and partly because I want some mail-friendly cards in my stash. Traditional Christmas colours? Got to be red, green and gold...what else?! Here's my festive contribution... hope you like it!
|My card base is red and the papers are from Bo Bunny's Mistletoe 6x6 pad.|
|My trifold card is a simple one, with the 2 flaps overlapping. To jazz up the card, I've thrown in 3 gold brads, red ribbon and did my stitching in gold embroidery thread.... it is Christmas after all!|
|On the inside, this is what you see under the top flap...|
|... and this is what you find under the 2nd flap. The greeting is from the same Chocolate Baroque set, stamped in Memento Rhubarb Stalk.|
|All closed up the card looks like this. I used Xcut's Leafy Lace Decorative Border Punch on the top flap.|
This easy peasy tri-fold card folds down well and isn't bulky for posting. The sketch for this card is from Tuesday Morning Sketches #186 and ideas came for these challenges: 365 Cards #52 "Fussy Cutting and Stamping"; Paper Crafter's Journey Bingo - Gems + Embossing + Twine; ABC Christmas Challenge: D for Designer Paper; Holly Jolly Christmas Card Challenge "Tic Tac Toe" - Designer Paper + Brads + Embossing; Crafting by Designs "Anything Goes" and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra - Feb.
That's all from me today. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Sunday. This is a scheduled post, so I'll see ya when I get home!
