How to Make a Tri Fold Card Tutorial


Photobucket
Start off by cutting your cardstock to measure 12" long by 6" high, then mark 3" in from each side (top and bottom)


Photobucket

Score your marks, I use my enveloper but any other score tool will do just as well.

Photobucket
Push down on your score marks with your bone folder to give a nice crisp edge

Next you are going to cut inserts for both inside and outside flaps. Do this by taking measurements of one fof the flaps on you card and then cut cardstock to the size you require.

Photobucket
You need to duplicate these four times and also cut another set for the middle of the inside

Photobucket
The next step is to cut out your image and make a mat for it. If you do sewing on your cards remember to cover the back of this part!! Half of this image is can be seen when card is open!!
When you have all parts assmbled, glue them onto your card. You have now got a beautiful tri- fold card!!
