Beautiful Blooms Tri-Fold




















For this tri-fold I used textured Very Vanilla cardstock cut at 8 1/4" x 5 1/2" divided into thirds, scored at about 2 3/4" on both sides. Front piece was punched with scallop square. Middle fold is punched with 1 3/8" square punch. I made a pencil mark so I could center it evenly. Image is stamped on very center, sentiment stamped in middle. I left the very inside blank but for the flower image and will stamp a nice verse depending on the occasion.

I clear embossed Bella Toile on outside and added some paper piercing. Stamped two-step flower using Pixie Pink for flower and celery for stem with markers. Flower center is Regal Rose. Pink grosgrain ribbon tied in a bow but not too tightly so this can slip on and off your card easily to open.
