Fun Tri-Fold Greeting Card

August 24, 2017

I had so much fun yesterday playing around with this new-to-me Tri-Fold Greeting Card.  It might have another name but for now that’s what I’m calling it.

Tri-fold Card, closed

I wanted to make a few WOW cards for several people we met while traveling Rte. 66 during the past few weeks.  When I saw this fold on Pinterest I was hooked.  Make ’em.  Make several of them!  This card is for my new friend, Mary, who was first mate on the tour boat we took on Lake Powell in Page AZ.  To sum it up mildly, we really hit it off.  Russ too.  She’s a dynamite woman!  And her birthday’s in just a few days so it was inspiration to make this WOW card for her.

Lemon Lime Twist is my favorite of the 2017-2019 In Colors.  (I can prove it by my wardrobe!)  It’ll be around for two years so I’m going to enjoy the heck out of it while available.

Today’s card uses a 5-1/2″ x 11″ piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock that is scored at 1-1/4″,  4″ and 6-3/4″.  (<corrected!)  Do a mountain/valley/mountain folding on those score lines.  Or you could call it an “M” or “W” fold.

For the layering I used the ‘wow’ Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.

Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper, 144131, 40 12″ x 12″ sheets, 4 each of 2 double-sided patterns


The Designer Series Paper layers are 1″ x 5-1/4″ (cut two), 2-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ and 4″ x 5-1/4″.  And the inside (hidden) layer is also 2-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ — Whisper White card stock.

The embellishment was cut using the Layering Squares Framelits.

The greeting is from the way versatile Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

And finally, the flowers are from the gotta-have Daisy Delight stamp set.

This card will sit very nicely on your recipient’s desk or table or counter top–so everyone can admire it!  I laid another Whisper White layer over the one I’d already written on for the photo so it isn’t in ‘perfect’ position.


I hope you’ll try making this tri-fold card for yourself–or, rather, for your lucky recipient.  It’s easy.  It’s attractive.  You can use any Designer Series Paper and any greeting to make it fit your occasion.  For supplies, click on any of the links above (in red) to be taken to my online Stampin’ Up! store.  I’m always appreciative when you shop there.  (Be sure to select me as your demonstrator who’s always available to guide you when you have questions or needs!)
