"Thursdays" with Kim - J't'aime

Hi girls! I know It's not Thursday but I couldn't wait to show you my sweet card! I made this card for my hubby for Valentine's Day but I couldn't wait so I gave it to him this afternoon!

And off course I'll show you how to make this type of card! I'm not a tease! :) First let's start with a piece of cardstock measuring 5 1/2" by 12" (I used Basic Grey Designer Cardstock) score it at 2", 4", 8",  and 10".

Now turn the cardstock of 90 degrees. Along the long edge, measure in 1 ½". Now make a cut between the score marks at 2” and 10”. Repeat for the other long side and you should end up with something that looks like the following:

Now fold your card like this:

Here's a close up so you can see better better.

Cut your papers into the right size and of your favorite patterns. (I used Bittersweet from Basic Grey)

I inked and distressed the edges of my card and papers. Don't forget to ink the folds!

Add glue or tape, embelish as you want and voila it's done!

This is how your card should look like once opened:

and now closed:

Hope you'll like this quick tri-fold card tutorial! Hugs and kisses...
