Video Tutorial: How to Make a Tri-fold card!


I am so excited to share this fun AND EASY tri-fold card with you today!

WATCH THE VIDEO below in this post for all the instructions plus bonus tips!


All of these adorable elements were cut or punched out of the Home for Christmas designer paper in the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog for 2015!!

Being a former Structural Drafter... here is how my brain works... some of you will relate... if you don't, that's ok too... the video will help :)



 Below... what the card looks like when you open it..


I embellished each punched tree with candy dots and a punched gold glimmer star!


Compare the difference... the trees above were punched out of the Home for Christmas tree patterned paper, and the trees below were fussy-cut individually out of the paper.... the punching is quicker, but the hand cut ones are so super pretty!!



The Santa and reindeer (or Bambi as I like to call him) are also cut out of the printed paper from the Home for Christmas package.  I added the smallest rhinestones onto the tips of each candle on the trees.. so pretty!


The perfect touch to finish off this card was a Wooden Snowflake embellishment with an Iced Rhinestone in the center!!  As I mentioned in the video, I colored the center of the rhinestone with a red Sharpie Marker. :)

Here are 3 versions of this Tri-fold Christmas Card - the video will show you how to make them!  Later this week I will post close up photos of the snowflake card (designed by Susan Adams).
