Tri fold card tutorial

As promised here are the instructions to make a tri fold card like the one I posted the other day here and below. I know there are lots of different styles of this fold card and tutorials out there in blogland, but I wanted to come up with one that involved the minimum amount of cutting and faffing about and this one uses an A4 sheet of card as it comes without any trimming. All measurements for this one are in good old fashioned inches.

All you need to create the card is one whole A4 sheet of cardstock, a ruler and/or scoring board, pencil and craft knife.


I have tried to make the picture as clear as possible, but you can always click on the picture to get a closer look if any of the measurements are not clear enough. Hope you find this easy to follow, but any problems please do ask me (e.mail on my profile page).

Your card is stunning - of course! - and thanks for the details of the method - now I have to have a go. (but not during the match, lol! think I'd better stay away from the craft knife at that time!)

I love your card, and I just made one. Thanks for sharing. I have a problem though....mine doesn't fold flat. Have I done something wrong? I keep looking at yours and comparing mine to it, and it looks the same.
Thanks again,
Babs
