And, as Valentine's Day is just around the corner, we're asking you to create one with a Valentine's theme.
I wasn't exactly sure what a 'tri-fold' card was...but I was fairly certain that it should have three folds...until I Googled...and found SO many different card shapes all described as 'tri-fold', and very few actually having three folds! They mainly seemed to have three panels, so that's what I went for with my card, simply making my square card base as normal, and then folding the front panel back on itself. The image I've used is an adorable Whiff of Joy stamp called 'Henry Hugging Heart', and I coloured him with watercolour pencils...making him grey (rather than my usual 'mousey' brown) to match the grey card I was planning on using. I added Glossy Accents to the heart, before cutting him out with one of my Nesties. I've kept it really simple...thought it would suit a man better that way! lol
I used my 'Swiss Dots' folder for all of the embossing, and distressed the edges with my distressing tool.
Here's a view of the card 'open':
I mirrored the layout of the front on the inside, so that the message would be hidden when the card is closed. I used my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet for the lettering, and the heart was cut using the 'Concentric Hearts' die.
