To know me is to know that I LOVE cards that have a special fold! I guess it's the drafter in me! I have always wanted to make a Tri-Fold Angle card but I found it intimidating. I was not sure how to adjust the measurements for the layering pieces of designer paper and I was a bit overwhelmed. Then I decided I needed to put my big girl panties on and figure it out! After all, I was a drafter for over 20 years and I'm not afraid of a ruler! LOL
In this first video, I show you how to create the Tri-Fold Angle card using a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock. This is the easiest way as your card base has to be divided into 3 equal sections (4", 4", 4" =12"), Piece of cake!
I am also using the High Tide stamp set that will soon be retiring. I will miss this set so much as I love the coastal inspiration it gives.
Here is a picture of the dimensions I used when creating with the 12" x 12" cardstock. The dimensions for the designer paper are written in red ink.
Here is a complete list of supplies I used to create the High Tide Tri-Fold Angle Card: High Tide stamp set (#143006), Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper (#154288), Cardstock: Soft Suede (#115318), Basic White (#159276).

Knowing that most card makers purchase 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock, I wanted to show you a second option using this size to create the Tri-Fold Angle card. It's easy to create both sizes when you know how! I am sharing a Sneak Peek of the Hand Penned Suite that is in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and will be available May 4th so put these supplies on your wish list so you will be ready to order them when the new catalog goes live!
