TRIPLE FOLD CARD INSTRUCTIONS
Here are the instructions for the card base I used for
and THIS CARD
There are LOTS of different ways to make a triple fold card and I am sure there are easier ways......
but this is how I did mine :)
First start with a 12" x 5 1/2" piece of card stock.
Score along the long edge at 4" and 8"
Cut out whichever shapes you want on each of the 3 panels.
You will need to either create a frame or cover where the glue dots go in the next step - so choose shapes that you have the next size up for (e.g. some Stampin' Up! framelits)
Here is how to cut 'frames' for the card - to cover the glue dots.
You will need 3 frames and 6 shapes - here I have ovals. You need 3 for the front of your card
and 3 for the back....however you will see 4 of those shapes at some point in the card opening and closing, so although I have 3 white and 3 designer paper - you do actually need 4 designer paper and 2 white. (I took these photos on retreat - so allow me some leeway with mistakes :P)
At this point, if you are going to dry emboss your card - you should do it now.
Next put a glue dot at the top and bottom of each of the shapes you have cut and adhere a piece of Bakers Twine in each space.
Snip the end tails off the Bakers Twine close to the glue dot and put another glue dot on top to make it more secure
Adhere the frames you made tot he front of your card - covering the glue dots!
Turn the card over and adhere your Designer Paper shapes to the Bakers Twine. You want the 'wrong side' of your Designer Paper to have the Bakers Twine stuck to it - e.g. the side you won't see. I used double sided tape.
Now put double sided tape across the middle of each oval horizontally. Fold your card slightly so you can get each of the ovals to touch and adhere a piece of Bakers Twine along the middle connecting the ovals together.
Now adhere the 'front' ovals to the card on top of the others - sandwiching the Bakers Twine in between the two ovals. This is the 'back of my card....when the card is closed you will see the Gingham DSP on the FRONT.
And this is what the front of my card looks like.
