Tri Fold Cards for the ladies

We are going to see Johns Aunt Lois today for her birthday.  John had on file a photo of her when she was a little girl, she is now 72. I think she will be pleasantly surprised to see this photo on her birthday card! I don't know about you but I love those old photos of family!
I also had my 2 favorite crafty twins birthday cards to make.  Since I am loving the framelits and tri fold cards I made 2 more of them for these 2 great ladies.
I used 4 of my favorite elements on these cards: 1.Tri Fold technique 2.Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder 3. Antique Faceted Buttons 4. Framelits

Since my daughter is on a rare visit, I made her this card letting her know how glad I am to see her and how special she is.

I am loving these tri fold cards so much that I may never go back to 2 sided cards :)
If you want to try one, use a piece of card stock measuring 5 1/2" by 12" and score at 4" and 8" on the long 12" side.  Fold and do your thing!

I hope you are having a lovely weekend!
And as always please contact me if you would like to learn how to make your own lovely cards and gifts!

Be inspired to create!
