PTI MIM #192: Tab Closure Tri-fold Card

Well, I should have been mass producing more Christmas cards this afternoon, but instead I decided I really want/need to win a Papertrey Ink gift certificate. The release this month is incredible. I swear they keep increasing the number of new products every release. However, Betsy did such a beautiful job with her video tutorial explaining how to make a tri-fold card with a tab closure. Let me just say that I didn't find it as easy as she makes it look. Her card here is incredible. Next time I'd just use dimensionals and tuck in the tab closure. The exacto and I didn't get along too well…maybe I used too many layers of paper in my design. (wink) Without further ado, here it is.

I used coordinating papers from MME Winter Wonderland paper pad on an Ocean Tides card base as well as some SU Real Red to accent the designer paper. Merry Christmas from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday is stamped in Pure Poppy. 

You can see below my jagged cut using an exact for the slit (not pretty) but it works. 

Using Pure Poppy ink I stamped a sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday in the middle of the folds. 

Well, there you have it, and now I can say I tried. : )

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Ocean Tides and SU Real Red
Ink: Pure Poppy
Stamps: Stylish Sentiments: Holiday
Dies: Limitless Layers: 2-1/4" Ovals
Other: MME Winter Wonderland paper pad, corner rounder and exacto

I love playing in the MIM challeng too! You did a wonderful job with this trifold card and beautiful flap. Pretty patterned paper too. I missed that week. Take care!
