Tri-Fold Technique Balloon Celebration Card

Balloon Celebration Tri-foldHi Everyone! Balloon Celebration Bundle was used in this angled Tri-Fold Technique card. I found Patty Bennett's holiday version and had to make a birthday version! Such a fun, interactive card that folds out and stands on its own for display. It's one of my 3 cards that features a core group of items from the It's My Party Suite and Balloon Celebration Bundle.

What's awesome is that you can make 2 tri-folds out of 1 6" x 12" piece of card stock!


With pencil, mark 1" up from the 6" side on the left and mark 1" down from right. Take to your Stampin' Trimmer and line up the dots on the cutting track. (line below is just for a not draw a line.) NOTE! Score first THEN trim. See general instructions below.


Mark at 1" as noted above.  DSCN5870

Take to Stampin' Trimmer and line up the dots. Paper will be at an angle.


Close guide and cut!


DSCN5873Don't worry if your cutting is slightly off the mark. Very forgiving so don't stress my stampin' friends! And presto! You have 2 Tri-Fold elements!!

12x6 Whisper White Cardstock. Score at 4” & 8” along 12 side.
5-1/2 x 4-1/4 Melon Mambo
