Double Trifold Card using Snowman Season - Video Tutorial

Good Morning! :o) I'm excited to share today's card - I like it a lot!

It's a Double Trifold card and is really easy to do. There are lots of mats and layers but the basic construction is simple.

I used the Snowman Season stamp set together with the coordinating Let it Snow Specialty papers. The three snowmen in the centre of the card were cut from one of the sheets of paper.

The cards fold flat and I created a Belly Band to keep them closed.

I used Real Red for the card base for this one and Coastal Cabana for all the layers.

This is the card I created in the Video. I reversed the colours, using Coastal Cabana for the card base and Real Red for the layers.

This photo shows you the shape of the card from above.

I added a panel to the reverse of the card so you can write your message.

Here is the Video ...


Coastal Cabana – Card Base                                                        12” x 6”

Position into the Trimmer with the SHORT side at the top and lining up right side edge at 1”

Cut down from 1” to 5” and from 7” to 11”

Turn the cardstock around and REPEAT for the other side

Place into the Score Board with the LONG side across the top:

Score down at 2”, 4”, 8” and 10”

Score down to the CUT LINE ONLY at:

1”, 5”, 7” and 11”

Turn the cardstock around and REPEAT for the other side

Belly Band:

Coastal Cabana                                                                           8” x 2”
Let It Snow DSP                                                                          8” x 1

Score at: 1¾”, 2”, 6” and 6

You will need additional Whisper White card for stamping, punching and die cutting and Coastal Cabana card for die cutting.
