365 Cards- Day 45 and Colour Create week 11

I have to say I am thoroughly enjoying Scor-It week at 365 cards this week, this sort of thing is right up my street. I love making anything a little different as those of you who visit my blog will know by now.

Today's challenge is to make a Tri-fold card, I must admit this isn't something I have done before but was looking forward to having a go, so this is my take on today's challenge

I used Mocha Bazzill for the card base which was cut at 12" x 4" then scored at 4" and 8" to give me the 3 sections. I then scored the outside sections across the diagonal to make the mountain and valley fold.

The paper I printed my self, it is Pink Petticoat Flourishes in Mocha and Double cream, I cut a piece just under 4" square and then cut that into triangles this was stuck to the outside corners of the card. The inside and outside images are the same digital stamp, I loaded this onto my label programme and added the sentiment in Dark Brown before printing this onto another sheet of Pink Petticoat Double Cream, this was then mounted onto Bazzill Java and one was adhered to the inside of the card the other to the outside of the card, before adding the one on the outside I added a length of ribbon to tie the card shut then only stuck the bottom left triangle to the outside otherwise you stick your card shut!

I am also entering this for the Colour Create challenge this week as the colours are

Chocolate, Coffee and Cream!

Hope you like it

Fantastic card Maz, I think I'd end up in a big sticky mess if I tried something like this design, I admire anyone who can produce such a gorgeous and complicated project like yours. Love everything about it. Chris x
