Thought I'd have a go at a Tri-Fold card. Took ages to make, cutting all the bits to fit. affraid

I think you should have put a 'drool alert' on the title of this thread! It's lush!

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date Laughing

Made one of these a while back, got template from a friend. Bit of a fiddle, but effective.
The green, black and white is smashing.

Thanks girls. Mr Green Glad you like it.
I'm sorry, I don't have a template, but it's easy to make.

Take a piece of card 12 x 5 inches. Score at 2, 4, 8 and 10 inches.

Now, turn your card turn then cut 1 inches in from each long edge between the 2 and 10 inch score marks.

Fold as you see in mine above, valley, mountain, etc, etc. Then cut pieces to fit all the panels and decorate.

If you don't find it easy, I'll make another and photograph it, but I really do think you'll be able to manage from above instructions. They're really very simple.

That's brilliant!! I have seen these before and even received one as a Christmas card from a friend a few years ago and have kept it on case I wanted to use it as a template. It was different to this though as there was and extra fold and all the creases were down the middle (so if you looked at it from the top there were 2 W creases and 1 M crease as well as the edges - does that make sense? Not sure?) Anyway I like your version too Very Happy
