Tri-Fold birthday card...

Hello crafty peoples!

This makes a nice change...I find myself blogging quite early in the day! (Not at 2 o'clock in the morning like usual!)

I am on a bit of a card making spree at the moment, and the spree is 'new techniques' I am trying to make a different shaped card, or use a technique I haven't used before at the moment.

The technique for the moment is 'Tri-Fold' There are LOADS of video tutorials for a tri-fold card on YouTube.

So I had an attempt and this was the result:

The front:

The Card when it is open:

Really cute cupcake! (I love these stamps!)

Close-up of some of the embellishments.

I think it turned out really well! I will definitely be trying this technique again! Now cleverly I have managed to make this card, so that it covers a few of the competitions that I like to enter. They are:

  • Shabby Tearoom - Challenge #54 - 'Bingo' (I chose, buttons, brads and dies/punches)

  •  Papertake weekly - Challenge 'It's a Mum thing'

  • I love promarkers - Challenge #58 - Theme 'Go Dotty'

  • I will have a new update soon, I have many projects in the workings at the moment.
