I love CardMaps because they are such a great start for a
quick & easy card that ends with a beautiful result. I started with a
sketch from the CardMaps website from June 2013.
I grabbed my collection pack
of Cold Avocado Soup from Jillibean Soup and a bit of ribbon and gems. In
minutes, I had this simply sweet card that was ready to go.
After I was done, I wanted to see what this card would look
like if I would change the card base to a tri-fold card. It worked PERFECTLY!
I started both cards with a piece of Bazzill Card Shoppe
cardstock that I cut in half to measure 4.25" x 11". The basic fold
card was simply folded in half to create a standard card base that measures
4.25" x 5.5".
For the tri-fold card, lay the cardstock base horizontally
and score at 2.75" and 8.25".
Fold both of the smaller
panels in, towards the center to create a tri-fold card base.
I used the exact same pieces to create the tri-fold card as
I did for the basic card. On the right fold, adhere the grey pattern paper
strip and gems, as shown.
On the left fold, layer the different elements just as you
would have on the basic card.
By making such a small change, you can create a much more
dramatic card. Give it a try the next time you sit down to create some a
card! If you make one this week, be sure to link us up in the comment section below. We would love to see it 🙂
