Graduation Tri-Fold

Hi, everyone! I am doing a second post to day, because I was asked about this style of card, which I posted earlier as a St. Patty's day card:HERE

                            DOUBLE TRI-FOLD

Using one sheet of 8 ½" x 11" card stock, cut two card bases ( 8 ½" x 5 ½" ). Score at 4 1/4" on both and also 2 1/8" on the second piece (This will be your insert panel). On the other end of the second piece, cut off 2 1/8". (This will give you three equal panels on the second piece.)

Cut out a window on the first piece. This will be the actual card base. My window was cut in 1 1/4" from each side.

Crease all of your scores.

Place sticky tape on one of the insert end panels. Then line the edge up to the center fold of the base card and attach.

Cut a piece of card stock to fit through your window. Mine is 2 1/8" x 2 3/4". (This can be cut from the piece you cut off of the insert.) Place a piece of tape on one long side. Lining up the insert and the cover, attach it to the inside of the insert edge, making sure it will fit through your window.

Cut designer papers to frame the cover window and place on insert panels. You can add or subtract how many panels are covered. I did the back two panels on the insert, leaving the card base panel, and the two first of three panels on the inside of the insert.

 Decorate your window piece and the back base panel as desired. You can also add any other embellishments to the other panels if desired. I chose to leave mine simple.

NOTE: when choosing your DSP, you will need three coordinating designs as they will all be visible.

Have decided that black wasn't the best color to choose for a tutorial, but hope this works for you. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Have a great day!
