Tri-fold Father's Day Card


I found a video on-line that showed how to make this wonderful Tri-fold card.  The hardest part of this was getting the fold correct so the front would lay flat.  It took a while to figure it out but once I did I really loved the look.  There are many great tutorials out there in web land and I watched several  Just search "tri-fold cards" and many options will come up for you to look at.  I have to admit, the first spray glue I used "an Elmer's spray glue" did NOT work.  After a few days the paper sections started coming off.  I took all the paper back off the card and resprayed with my 3M paper safe spray glue (love it) and it has stayed tight with no hint of coming off!  Hooray!  Here is what I used on this card:
  • Cardstock: core'dinations in dark brown, patterned paper by K&Company (love their paper)
  • VersaMagic chalk ink in Jumbo Java
  • Ribbon...and one metal button by Heidi Grace
THAT'S IT!  That is why I said the hardest part was the folding!  This card has been entered in the following:
thanks for checking my blog out.  I am just happy I found a moment to get a card done this week!  Summer is crazy time, isn't it!!!   Have a great weekend everyone!   Would love your comments and more followers!

Wow, your card turned out quite lovely.
The color scheme & that fold are just outstanding.
The ribbon seems like the perfect touch to tie all those pretty elements together.
