3rd Anniversary

So weird to think my daughter will soon be married for 3 years, I wanted to make a special card for them.  On Mothers day Hot off the press was having a sale so I decided to order the cd called Amazing Folded cards, it has 52 different folded cards to make and I picked the trifold card with hearts for their card.  The cd has patterns for the cards and video on how to make them.



I will have to say I made a little mistake but I fixed it and it doesn't look too bad, when I drew around the template for the heart on top I did it backwards so I had to do a little trimming to get it to work, but I think it turned out all right :)  I could not get it to shut totally to take a picture.

This is what the card looks open to the first fold.



Here it is fully open, I will write my message on the inside here.


Here I leaned it up against the back of my board to see if I could get it to close a little more, with not much luck.


The ribbon matches the color of the card better in real life.

Hot off the press -- patterns for the tri fold card, Amazing folded cards cd
DCWV -- Rustic Stack paper
Diamond Mesh
Jo-Ann -- Scrap Essentials, emotion pack vellum quotes (inside saying)

11 days and counting until I see my daughter, getting so excited :)
Hope your week is going well and your enjoying beautiful weather,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

Connie

How fun! 52 folds? Wow! I love the design on this one, the way it folds up with the two hearts. Gorgeous, Connie, and I don't see any flaws at all!
