I like to add some stitching to my cards so I am either making window cards to put my miniature stitching in or just glue them to a piece a cardstock to decorate my card with.
Today I will show you how to make a tri-fold card.
An envelope, approximate size 3 3/8" by 5 3/4",
A decorative cardstock, approximate size 5 1/2' by 11"
Divide your cardstock to 3 even parts and fold sides to the middle with a help of ruler. Fold all 3 sides and check if you need to adjust the size of card. I am usually trimming cards as needed to be perfectly rectangular.
With pencil and ruler, find the center of the middle section on the back side of the card and mark it. Place your cardstock on a protective cutting mat with the back side facing you. Place your oval template so it is centered over the center point. Cut the shape with your exacto knife, then turn your card to the front and see if you like how it turned out. If it needs some adjustments make it with your small needlecraft scissors.
