Love You Much Tri-fold Card

This was a fun card! It's always neat to see those cards that are just a little bit different. This one has a tri-fold. It's was pretty simple to make, although there are just a few little tips to making this card work out in the end. First of all when you have your card folded right the right side needs to be just a hair smaller than the left so that you'll get a nice flat fold. Otherwise, you'll have it bulk up in the middle (see below). The second little tip is to punch out your 1-1/4" Circle from your scrap of cardstock (this is Pink Pirouette) first, then punch your Scallop Circle around that circle. Then punch your 1-1/4" Circle in your right flap. Adhere your Scallop Circle right around your punch out. The next little tip is for your image inside your card. Usually I don't adhere my layers before I stamp them because I like that Stampin' Up!'s cardstock is opaque in case I make a mistake and need to flip that cardstock over. So you can lay your inside layer where it would go or even use a temporary adhesive so that it doesn't move on you. Close your right flap and make tiny pencils marks at the top bottom, right and left. Open the flap and stamp your circle image. You can gently erase the pencil marks when your ink is dry. Adhere your layer to the inside of the card. Now your image will show through your circle "window".

Check back tomorrow for another sample from the Love You Much Valentine's Bundle. Until then... happy stamping!!
