Birthday Tri-Fold Card

Hi There!  Welcome to the TRC blog!

Today I have a fun Tri-Fold Card to share with you that I made with the December Wish Big Creative Cafe' Kit and the add on stamp set, Birthday Wishes.  This card was a lot of work but it is amazing when it's done and the recipient will LOVE it!


 

Start with a 11" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock and score at 4" and 7 1/2".


Measure an inch away from each edge and and inch and a half from each side of the 7 1/2" score.


Score and cut on the line as shown in the picture below.


Measure each of the panels and then create paper panels 1/4" smaller to cover the panels as shown.


Then decorate the panels.


Here is a closer look at the front of the card.  I stamped the banners with pink ink on yellow paper and then fussy cut them out and adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares.  I stamped the owls on scraps of white cardstock and colored with copic markers before fussy cutting them out.  I stamped the balloons two times on white cardstock and then two times on three different patterned papers which I used to paper piece the balloons.


For the finishing touch stamp extra owls and cupcakes on white cardstock, color and fussy cut out.
Adhere them to the card with 3D Foam Squares.


This month's kit of the month is so fun!  You will love all the bright colors and adorable stamps and sentiments.  I hope this card has inspired you to get stamping!
