Three Fold Card Tutorial

I have been asked to do a tutorial on this three fold card I made last month. This is my FIRST ever tutorial so, I hope you will be able to follow it! Here goes!

Choose double sided paper for your card base -- 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". I used heavier paper by K&CO. The outside needs to be a lighter pattern so that you can see the stamped image when you stamp on it. Fold the 2 ends into the middle where they will touch.

Choose another piece of double sided paper that will compliment the base card and will be light enough to see a stamped image on. Cut it to 4 1/2" x 9 1/8" and use a border punch to punch one side of it. Then starting at the straight end, score this piece at 5 1/2 ".

Glue the long piece you just punched, to the back of your card base, leaving the top flap up. That will be folded over the front of the card.

Fold down flap over the front folds, decorate card with stamps and finish with embellishments!

I hope you enjoy making this card.
