I wasn't sure quite what to do so had a look on Pinterest. I came across a site called Card Making Magic - and they had instructions for a fancy tri-fold card. Now, I liked the idea - but decided to add my own twist to it. So, rather than scoring for a tri-fold card, I scored 9cm from each end of a piece of A4 card. The front flaps still overlap - but not as much. I then scored diagonally down each flap, then parallel to the edge of the card, and finally so that the corners pointed out.
For my card, I have used an image from our sponsor called Cupcake. I kept the colour scheme simple. The Raspberry base card is from Papermill, with two blue papers from Crafter's Companion's Halcyon Days CD.
The image is coloured with Spectrum Noirs - IB1, 2, 3; PL1, BP2, BP6 and BP7. I cut it out with a Spellbinders Exquisite Circles die. Have never got the hang of using these with the circles dies - but like the star shapes they give. A larger die from the set was used to cut the raspberry mat. Two colours of ribbon and a few pearls finish the card off.
If you pop over to the Crafty Cardmakers blog to check out the work from the other DT members you'll notice it's a bit thin on the ground. A few of our wonderful team have had to step down - so keep your eyes peeled for a DT call very soon!! In the meantime get busy folding!!
