I saw these tri fold cards at the Scrapbook convention this spring and they looked so neat I had to give them a try, so I saved my first time trying it out for my sisters card.
I used watercolor paper on this one, colored it with Distress inks, Distress markers and Spectrum Aqua markers.
Once again I had to use a paper clip to keep it closed to get this first shot, the card does not stay like this on it's own. I didn't notice this until I was cutting the last panel but I stamped the left side panel over to the right too far, it should have been up against the fold more, but I needed to get this out in the mail so I had to just let it go. The stamp set gives you the measurements of where to line the stamps up as far as up and down it was my fault I didn't stamp closer to the fold.
Here it is semi open.
And here it is all the way open, I like how you have an area at the bottom to add your sentiment to it.
I bought two of these type stamps, you may be seeing the other one in a couple months for my other sisters birthday :)
Art Impressions -- Cottage Tryfolds stamp set.
Water colored using Distress ink, Distress markers and Spectrum Aqua Markers
Stickles -- Shabby shutters on the flower centers
