My First Tri-Fold Card

I don't know about you, but I'm horrible at following written directions! I'm a visual learner and usually have to see how something is done before I can do it myself. When I couldn't find the tutorial I had saved for this card from Splitcoast Stampers, I was so worried that I wouldn't be able to make it. I had to revert to my memory (an even scarier thought!) and after a few tries at the folding, I decided that the finished project didn't turn out too shabby.

I created this card for the Freaky Friday challenge over at AC Bailey Designs. They challenged you to use multiple folds in a card project so I created this tri-fold card.

(And yes, I know it's {technically} Tuesday, but since Friday, I've had to leave town for a memorial service, come back for my son's baptism, go out of town to deal with our rental property, and come back to town for birthday festivities. And this was just this weekend!)

After all was said and done, this was a pretty easy card to make. I'd tell you how, but you'd probably get confused, so instead I'm going to refer you to where I saw it originally - at Splitcoast Stampers. Their step-by-step tutorials are great!

The end product is a 4"x6" little bundle of love created primarily with Close To My Heart products, including the new FaLaLa paper packet and glitter(!) rub-ons.

In fact, the only things that aren't Close To My heart is the stitched ribbon (Stampin' Up), the blue glitter for the snow swirls on the front (Martha Stewart). and the orange for the carrot nose (courtesy of Crayola)

As always, thanks for looking!

Looks Fabulous! I was the same way and so excited when I made the card work a few weeks ago. Great job.
