3 Card Fold !!

3 Card Fold
 Hello and welcome to my blog
l have amazing news!!
For some time
 l have know about this but wasn’t able to share with you until today
 l received an email from
Jenn Blakeney Borjeson 
Who design’s for several blog and
l was asked if l would like to do a Wednesday slot
And without hesitation l said yes!!
It never crossed my mind to say no
l haven’t done a tutorial before
Then l came across this one that was shown on
Three fold card
So l thought why not give it a go l contacted Jenn 
And was asked to pick some images from 
And as its exam time and graduations 
l just though this image would be perfect
So without any more further ado!! please see my 
Version of a 3 fold card 
And many thanks Darlene for sharing this
Take 2 A4 Card stock any colour as most or all will be covered
 Take 1st card and in landscape measure 11” across cut 
Off excess you can 
Keep the length or reduce it as l have done
 Score both ends about 2 ¾ “leaving the middle 
 5” = 11” 
This makes it easier for rounding up figuares
 2nd card Portrait cut to 5” 
 Adhere to back of card score and fold top of card this gives it the 3 card fold
 This l done in a darker colour to show the effects
 Backing papers inside and out free from the internet
 Just some lines Graduation image
Here is the finished card hope you like it
