Directions:

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
flower shapingAs far as cutting the cardstock and designer paper, I followed the template and then assembled the card.
