TNT Thursday


For my tutorial today I will be showing another folded card 
which was inspired by Linda Heller and Connie Stewart. 

**I realized after I had posted this yesterday to go live this morning, that I missed named the project. It is just a tri-fold , not an offset tri-fold!**

Let's get started

1. Cut the base pieces of the card. 
You will need 1 - 5 1/2" x 41/4" piece of CS / 1 - 5 x 8" piece of CS
2 - 1 3/4" x 4 3/4" pieces of DSP

3 - 1 1/4" x 3" pieces of CS for layering
3 - 1 x 2 3/4" pieces of CS for your stamped images 
** The solid Crumb Cake CS is not shown. 
I forgot to put it with the paper when I was photographing it!

2. Score the 5x 8 piece at 2" and 6", fold and score.

3. Adhere DSP centering it to the front of card. Stamp your inside sentiment. When that is complete, take the folded card and center 
that onto your 5 1/5" x 4 1/4" solid card stock.

4. Layer
 your stamped images.

5. Cut a 6" length of ribbon, I used the 7/8" Natural Ribbon. 
Fold it in half holding it together with a Glue Dot. Add another Glue Dot and adhere to the back of each stamped image. Place a Stampin' Dimensionals on either side of the ribbon and on the edge of one side as shown.  
This is the unit that will make up the Offset Tri Fun Fold.

6. Place each section to the front of the card staggering them 
as shown on the completed card below.
