TRI FOLD CARD

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the mom’s out there hope your day is filled with love and laughter… 

TRI FOLD CARD..I really liked this card because it had this quirky opening …however you might need to put a little note in with the card that tell them how to open it….I have friends who only receive cards and aren’t involved in making them they may not be able to figure out how to open it…  ANOTHER HINT…When you put the piece be it oval or circle or rectangle don’t overlap it too much ie too far down on the bottom flap because it will make it harder to open and in the end they may accidentally end up tearing the card ….of course you can simply fold the flap inside the card and then it will be easy to open but folding it over the top to hold the card closed is more interesting…as long as they can figure out how to open it…

I also like all the layers both on the front and on the inside but again don’t make that piece that is what holds it close too many layers or again it will be so stiff that the bottom won’t want to fold out easily.

Although Dawn made a wonderful card for her husband or a man card using her motorcycle stamps ….I just want to suggest that MOST men would not have a clue how to open this card…and it would definitely end up being destroyed.  Now her husband would not have a problem because he also makes cards…

I also think that the penguins would work really well with this card as would flowers and also the punch out owls… So just a few suggestions about this card technique…so have fun and GO MAKE SOMETHING… AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY…wire headed cyber toad aka kath
