Inspired Stamps Snowmen Double Tri-fold Card

 Aren't these the cutest little snowmen you've ever seen?  They have 8 more "brothers and sisters" and a sentiment in the Inspired Stamps set 1" Snowmen.  The entire set is only $7.99!  Just imagine all the adorable cards and projects you can create for winter and Christmas.

The Design Team's assignment this week was to create a fun fold card.  Be sure you check out the great cards by the rest of the team-their links are on the side.  For my card, I chose to make a new fold to me-the "Triangular Trifold Card".  It was quick, simple and economical-you can make 3 bases from 1 sheet of cardstock!  Here's the card opened:
 Would you like a quick tutorial?  Here you go!  Start with a 4" x 12" sheet of cardstock

Score the cardstock at 4" and 8", then fold.

Now fold the left panel's bottom corner up.  On the right side,  fold the top corner down.

Cut out a 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" piece of patterned paper and then cut it in half diagonally.  Adhere to the 2 triangles you just created on the card base.

 Wrap a ribbon or piece of twine around the card.  To secure it on the back, adhere a strip of paper over it.

(No Photo)  Adhere a shape base to the front left ONLY and OVER the ribbon/twine.  Embellish as desired. Tie ribbon/twine on the side to close the card.

Here's the completed card again:

  1. Cute card. The fold is fun and thanks for pointing out how many cards you could make from one sheet of paper. I forgot to point that out on my blog because once you learn how to fold the first few, you would be on a role and have a stack of Christmas cards completed. Yea! Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

  2. Cute card! Love that tie on the side.
