Just yesterday, I was looking for different card folds online, and found this one, which I wanted to have a go at. It's a tri-fold card with a twist... The main pool party base has been scored into three, but then the outside squares have been scored corner to corner and folded back to create two triangles. It's a little hard to explain, but I'm hoping you'll get some idea of what I've done from the photos. I have attached some square layers to each triangle, so it looks like it's a square card, but when you open it up, there are some "surprises", which is quite cool. Then, I have stamped and attached an inside panel. I've sponged all the edges with soft suede to give it a "worn, vintage" feel. Hope you like it!
