Hi all, this is Vickie. Our assignment for this month was to make a Trifold Card. I have always sort of shied away from this sort of card, but Cathy passed on a site that has exact directions. It even has a template that shows all the paper cuts for the whole card.
I used Designer Paper from Stampin' Up. It came in a pack and was double sided. It made my job easier because it was all meant to blend together. I distressed many of the pieces. I just love Distress Ink and how it makes the edges look softer.
I also cut some flowers from my Designer Paper to give the card some dimension. You do have to be careful about placement so that the card can be folded flat. I used my flower shaping tools to give the flowers some shape
As far as cutting the cardstock and designer paper, I followed the template and then assembled the card.
