Tri-Fold Thank You

Today's card is a clean and simple card I created for a class.  I've learned that unless you have experienced stampers in a class, keep the projects easy and not too time consuming.  I used two challenges for this card:  The Paper Players Challenge #45 and the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #92.

My card is a tri-fold.  The Poppy Parade base was cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored on both ends at 2" and 3-3/4".  I added a piece of Sunny Garden designer paper to each side of the front.  The bird parts were punched out of Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz card stock and Sunny Garden designer paper with the Two-Step Bird punch.  I sponged around the edges of the bird with Poppy Parade ink.  I attached them to a piece of Peach Parfait card stock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  The edges
were sponged with Poppy Parade ink.  I matted this layer with Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, and Poppy Parade card stock.  It was attached with dimensionals to the left panel only so that the card can be opened.  A piece of Peach Parfait was added to the inside.  I stamped a sentiment from the Thank You Kindly
stamp set inside.  This is a quick and easy card but makes a lovely way to say thanks to someone.  Enjoy your weekend.

This came out so pretty, Patti! I love that paper! I think I have it...I should use it, lol! Thanks for your kind comments on my cards. I got that paper ribbon idea from PattiStamps, I believe. You just use twice as much length as your card is wide. Soften it up with your bone folder on both sides (like you're curling a ribbon), then stick down with sticky strip. Super easy and you have a color to match each project! Have a happy day! ~Chanda
