Magical trifold

Magical trifold

Thanks to Top Tip Tuesday I was able to make this trifold card. It was for my brother and family. There will be a new addition to the family this year so I wanted  their card to represent each of them at this point.

 I designed the papers on craft artist. Each section has the appropriate name (blurred for privacy).

I used this LOTV die cut for my brother who enjoys mountain biking. I made the background using Versamark dazzle and Perfect pearls.

This second LOTV die cut was for his OH who loves baking and made our wedding cake last year- background as above.

The last image is for my nephew who loves Harry Potter.

I coloured with Promarkes and used Versamark dazzle and perfect perals to make the background.

Yep it’s my first attempt at a tri-fold card. Many thanks to the Top Tip Tuesday team for the great tutorial and inspiring DT cards. I’m really happy with this card as I managed to use lots of freebies from my stash so it was inexpensive but doesn’t look it!

I’ve used a Lili of the Valley die cut with lots of added stickles and also glossy accents on the robins and poinsettas. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and I added stickles
TIP: It is easier to put stickles on your craft mat and catch the edges of the petals in it rather than applying the stickles direct (I find I use less this way too!)

The robbins, holly leaves, pressies and trees are all chipboards from a Forever Friends set free with a magazine and the papers were also magazine freebies.
