2 Tri-fold Birthday Cards

Hello my blogging family and friends, I hope you are well. My my how time has F-L-O-W-N where does it go, I think there must be a TIME BANDIT who sneaks up unawares and takes a few minutes here and a few minutes there!

I have been in my craft room pottering, I have created a Laura Denison model - I'll show you when I have some photos - it has come out really well. A surprise for another time.

Today I have two cards that are both tri-fold cards to show you, here's:


Here is the front of my card when it is all folded together.

All the papers are from Echo Park - Sunshine Collection.

Here is the card opened up, I really like this style of card, once the cut and scoring is done, then the panels fold.

Here is a "helicopter" view of the opened card.

I just  love these wooden buttons - I have been holding onto them for a while 'cos I love them so much, then I thought this was crazy and that I should use them - so here they are - with a little black hemp string creating a bow on top.

Here is the central medallion made with scraps of card stock but using the Spellbinders Circle Delight dies.


Here's the front of my second card.
The papers are American Craft - Lucky charm collection.

Here is the card opened up, I cut out little butterflies from the reverse of the Echo Park papers to add as embellishments on this card.

Here is the second medallion, the central die is from Cottage Cutz.

The main ingredients that I used to make these cards:

So there you have it, two cards made using the tri-fold technique ..... Thanks for stopping by to read today's post ...
