Fun Trifold Cards

Today I have a couple of fun trifold cards for you. They are a great way to showcase your Designer Series Paper. My thanks goes to Patty Bennett for the inspiration.

Card 1: This uses the Ever Eden Specialty DSP with the Blessings of Home Stamp Set and matching Flowers of Home Dies.


Card 2: This card uses the Pansy Petals DSP and matching Pansy Dies.

  • Supplies:
    • Cardstock:
      • Base Colour – 21cm x 14.8cm, 12cm x 8cm
      • Contrasting Colour – 2 pieces 6.5cm x 9.5cm
      • Neutral – 7.5cm x 10.5cm (I used the largest Stitched So Sweetly Rectangle Die.)
    • Designer Series Paper – 10cm x 14.3cm, 2 pieces 6cm x 9cm, 2 pieces 10cm x 7.5cm
    • Die cuts from DSP or cardstock for front decoration.
  • Instructions:
    • Score the 21cm x 14.8cm piece (card base) at 10.5cm on the long side. Burnish the score line.
    • Measure down 6.8cm from the top left hand corner and cut across to the 10.5cm score line. Cut from the top of the 10.5cm score line down to 6.8cm. Discard the 10.5cm x 6.8cm piece (save for another project).
    • Score the 12cm x 8cm piece at 2.5cm on the long side. Burnish the score line. Attach to the lower right hand side of the card base along the 2.5cm score line.
    • Attach the largest piece of DSP to the right hand side of the card base (it will cover where the right hand piece is attached). This is the inside of the card.
    • Add the 10cm x 7.5cm DSP pieces to the outer side of the bottom flaps.
    • Attach the smaller pieces of DSP to the contrasting pieces of card stock.
    • Attach the neutral cardstock in the centre of the DSP on the inside of the card.
    • Close the right hand flap and attach the contrasting cardstock/DSP so that it is centred over the neutral cardstock.
    • Close the left hand flap over the right hand flap and attach the contrasting cardstock/DSP so that it over the top of the piece on the right hand flap.
    • Decorate front of card, right hand flap and inside of card as desired.
