Tri Fold Card

 I apologize for being so late in posting this fun card.  I created it this morning, but had an early appointment and didn't have time to post it and had to be gone most of the day.   Joan, at Joan's Gardens, has posted some of these cute stamp sets from Art Impressions, that create a tri-fold card.  There is not much to tell you about the card because you stamp the designs, following the very easy and clear instructions that come with the stamps.  I stamped on watercolor paper and painted with Distress Inks.



 You stamp the main image, which was the cabin in this set, on what will be the inside of the card.  Next you turn the card over and stamp the other two images on the side panels.  The instructions give you measurements on how far to stamp down.  I really thought this was going to be hard, but it was so easy.  Next you color your design then cut out the portion above the design, from each side.
 
 I used the "Lakehouse" stamp set.  There is a verse in this set that I stamped on the inside.  I used the Martha Stewart "Double Loops" punch set to create a frame, but you don't need to do that.  You will have an A2 size card if you use it as directed. 

There are some really cute animal/bird sets you can use to further embellish these cards.  I didn't have these sets, but wouldn't some of the little "critters" below look really cute on this card.  Be sure to go over to Joan's Gardens and see all the different Art Impressions  "Try'folds" sets you can be creative with.

This is so beautiful and creative. Love how you have coloured the scene and made it inter active with the folded layers.
