Tri-Fold Card Tutorial

Well I will warn you there's 9 pictures altogether but I think each one will spell out exactly how to make this adorable Tri-Fold Card.
First off gather all the materials your need:
A 5 1/2 by 12 inch piece of cardstock
Scor-pal or other scoring tool
Pattern Paper (Mine is Tea Party by SU)
Ruler, Bone folder, Paper Cutter, Ruler, Glue, Images, Accessories.
Start by scoring your paper at 2, 4, 8 & 10 inches
Then very carefully measure in 1 1/2 inches from each side then cut with an exacto knife of cutter from the 2 inch score to the 10 inch score line.
                      
You want to fold the middle opposite of the outside folds. Use your bone folder to crease your fold (that is very important for crisp folds). Then comes the fun part decorating the card.
You can layer it all or just some of the sections but I included the section measurements. I usually leave the center where I put the Hawaiian flower for a big verse or where someone can write something in the card. I also use a large die cut for the front to cover the other sections.
On this card I used SU Tea Party DSP, and Digital images from 3 of Deedee's sets 'What's Shakin, Sweetest Flower and The Right
Flip Flop".  I used metal flowers, a purple button, a mini metal butterfly, a metal dog tag that says Love You, Prima flowers, brads and a scrap of cork board paper.
Embellish to your hearts content and have fun, layer as much or as little as you want just have fun. I also have used a piece of card stock 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 to stabilize the card placing it on the back of the card if it's the same color it won't show through or not!

Now I had a great time with this card, I loved decorating it and I loved showing all my friends how to make it.
If you enjoyed the tutorial leave a little comment so I know you enjoy it and I'll do more.  Now let's see what you can do.....
I dare you!
God Bless,
Jeanine
