Fancy Folds

Wow there have been some pretty Fancy Folded projects so far this week from my fellow design team mates at The Beary Scrap Design Team Blog. Today is my turn and I also have a tutorial for you this week using the Scor-Pal.

Can you believe that you can win one in our
Beary Sweet Fancy Folds Blog Challenge.  

For this week I made my very first Tri-Fold Card. I have to admit this was pretty fun and very easy to make.

Here is a top view.
Here is what the card looks like all folded up.

Before I show you how to make this card let me give you my card recipe.
Bows, Prima Flowers, Flowers, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Stickles, Pearls, Spellbinders, charms, brads, buttons, Copics, and paper from Doodlebug Designs and of course a Scor Pal.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

The Burtonesque Dolls-Black Flowers and Skulls
Charisma Cardz Challenges-3D

Now how to make a Tri-Fold Card.

Now when I went internet surfing on how to make a Tri-Fold Card most were only 12x5 but I like bigger cards and it also gives you more room to decorate. So my card is 12x7

Now scor on the 2", 4", 8" and 10' lines.

Now rotate your paper a quarter turn and scor on the 1 1/2" mark but only scor from the 2" to the 10" scor mark see my red lines. Only scor in that area. Turn the paper to the other side and do the same thing.

Now on a self healing mat use a ruler and cut along the red lines (I only added colored lines for the tutorial).

Cut both sides and this is what your paper should look like.

Now use the next two pictures to fold your card the same way.

Here is how your card will look folded up.

I hope you liked my tutorial now lets see what you can make for our
