Tri-Fold With Circle

A Huge Shout out to my Stampin' Up! demonstrator friend for the directions to this amazing card!  IT is so simple to put together and even more fun to give away!  Pick your colors or stay with a white card using vellum and one bold color to make the flowers POP!

1. Start with a  cardbase that is 4 1⁄4” x 11”. Score & fold on the long side at 4 1⁄4” and 8 1⁄2”.
2. With a 2” circle punch, insert all the way on the 8 1⁄2” fold line and punch out. Save this circle as you will be using it later
3. Cut a 4” x 4” piece of the white background designer series paper (DSP). Adhere to the lower part of the card with snail adhesive. Cut a 4” x 2 1⁄4” complimentary piece of the designer series paper and adhere over the top portion taking care to avoid putting the snail adhesive over the cut out area from the
4. Now with card open, use the 2” circle punch to punch out the DSP that covered up half of the hole.
5. Stamp greeting of your choice on Whisper White cardstock  and punch out with 1 3⁄4” circle punch. Adhere to the 2” circle that you punched out in step #2
6. Adhere this circle to the card. I suggest using Fast Fuse or a stronger adhesive. The easiest way to adhere this circle to the card in the correct position is to have the
card closed and adhere through the bottom half of the circle as shown.

7. Using Flower Flair thinlits, cut flowers of your choice to adorn outside of card as shown. Use Iced Rhinestones to accent centers of flowers.
8. Adhere a 4” x 4” piece of Whisper White cardstock to the inside of the card. Decorate with die cuts, stamped images and/or a piece of designer series paper. 
9. Have fun using the special fold design over and over again with Stampin’ Up!’s 2 sided designer series paper. This card design is perfect for that! Imagine the smile on the face of the card recipient when they not only get a hand stamped card but, a card with a special fold like this!
