Tri-fold cards

I finally managed to get around to making these gorgeous tri-fold cards that are popular at the moment. The bottom one was my first attempt, and is OK considering I only used scraps of paper, not really the pieces I wanted! (Didn't want to use the new pack until I knew what I was doing!). The first image shows a different look altogether, which I much prefer, but then anything using the Urban series of DSP is always great I think! I created the background pattern using 'Fifth Avenue Floral' and the one-sheet wonder technique. For those of you keen to know the measurements, the card is 6 x 12 inches, scored at 2, 4, 8 and 10 inches, then turned 90 degrees and cut from the scored line at 2 inches to the scored line at 10 inches, at 1 and a half inches in from the edge. Then you can go to town decorating the card to suit your occassion. Hope you like them!
