Tri Fold Cards

Yesterday's TLC challenge was to make a tri fold shutter card. I just love seeing interesting folds on cards. Now that I have my new laptop, I can sit in the art room and review the steps from online tutorials!







This is a great card for fairies and origami paper!

Incidentally, I whipped up a trifold card yesterday morning before Church...to greet the boys when they arrived home from their Father/Son Camping Trip in Ohio. Starving Artistamps' Doodlefactory images are great for paper piecing. Stamp, emboss, trim, glue...presto magic!!!

















Although Ken only found out at the very latest moment that he could go, once the boys got to camp, they had a blast with Grandpa and Uncle Jordan. Jordan who teases my kids in fun. Only the fun is going to be on him. By the time his little ones are up and walking about, my kids are going to be teenagers...then we'll see who gets teased! haha. I'm so grateful for strong, thoughtful men who are willing to take time out of work and play to teach the young boys how to grow to be strong men themselves. Next week, the boys are sleeping on a SUBMARINE!! (Yes, DD and I will have to come up with something just as fun to do ourselves.)
