Tri Fold Card

My first try at a tri-fold card and I love the way it turned out. Other than the sentiment stamping, all other items are made with punches:

In order to create a tri-fold card, follow these directions. Start with a cardstock piece measuring 5.5" x 10.5". Score folds at 3.5" and one at 7" on the long side. Using a pencil, draw a small line at 1.5" on the edge of the short end of your cardstock. Using a ruler and a pencil, start your line at the 1.5" line you just drew and end at the 7" score line at the very top. Use your paper cutter to cut the diagonal line you just drew as a guide. Your line will be a diagonal cut to look like the picture below:

All of the items I used to decorate my card are from the "Build A Blossom" stamp set and the "Blossom Petals Punch" in the new "Occasions Mini Catalog". How quick and easy to create all the flowers you want in all the colors you love:
