Today’s Timeless Tuesday challenge hostess is Mona Pendleton. Her challenge is to create a Trifold card. There are a lot of different tri-fold cards to choose one. I selected the Triangle Trifold.

I created the base out of a 4″ x 12″ piece of white cardstock. A piece of  Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with the largest Beaded Square Nestabilities die  and cut diagonally. A 3 3/4″ square of Basic Grey cardstock  and a 3 1/2″ piece of Echo Park Yours Truly patterned paper were cut in half as well and stitched together. The layers were first adhered over the scalloped triangles, then over the card base fronts.

The sold heart from Fanciful Flourishes was stamped in Spun Sugar Distress ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut out. The flourished heart was stamped over the solid one in Fired Brick Distress ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder (Stampin’ Up!). The heart was adhered to another piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the second largest Beaded Circle Nestabilities die. Pink and Red Baby Bling were adhered to the beaded parts of the circle.

White Organdy ribbon was tied around the card base to keep it shut. The image layers were adhered above one part of the card front with dimensionals after parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl was adhered to the upper right and lower left of the card. A sentiment from Fanciful Flourishes was stamped in London Fog Memento Ink on a piece of cardstock, cut and embossed with a retired tag die. The inside part of the tag was sponged with Spun Sugar before the tag was adhered slightly under the heart.

The inside panel of the card base was decorated to match the outside. I hope you have time participate in the challenge. Like I said, there are lots of different trifold cards out there and they are all not hard. Thanks so much for stopping by!
