Angled Tri-Fold Birthday Card

This is one of the tri-fold cards we made at class this weekend.  The ladies really liked it and were surprised at how easy it was to make.

Begin with a piece of cardstock cut at 5 1/2 x 10 1/2.  With the long side along the top of your scoring  board, score at 3 1/2 and 7.  With the cardstock laying flat, make a tic mark 3" up from the third panel.  Line up that tic mark with the top edge of the first panel on your paper cutter.  Cut from the top corner to the tic mark -- that makes the angle.  Fold the card stock on the scored lines accordian style and the base of the card is made!  To make the patterned layers, cut your patterned paper 3 1/4" wide.  With the card base open flat, position the patterned paper on the first panel.  Make tic marks along the angled edge to mark where the paper  should be cut.  Do the same for the third panel as well.  Attach those pieces to the card base.  Turn card base over, and do the same process for the middle panel.  DO NOT CUT A PATTERNED PIECE OF PAPER FOR THE MIDDLE PANEL ON THE FRONT OF THE CARD.  If you do, the pattern will be on the the  back of the  card when you fold the card!  The paper for the middle panel must be attached to the BACK of the card.

The balloons were stamped and cut out using the Celebrate Today stamp and framelit bundle.  A little piece of baker's twine was used for the balloon strings.  Of course, I added a bit of bling on one of the balloons.

As always, please contact me if you have any questions about this project.
