Simple Folded Card

Hi everyone,
Today l am going to show you a simple tri folded card that can be used for any occasion.
This is a great way to use those leftover scraps from your layouts.
You can join in with me at Turtle Soup and make your own card from these instructions. Just click here to be a part of the forum.

Cut a 4" strip from a 12x12 piece of card. Cut 2" off one end to leave you with a 4" x 10" strip

Score 4" from the top edge and fold, then score 3" from the bottom and fold. Your card should look like this above

For the top 4" x 4" square cut a piece of patterned paper, or emboss a coloured piece of cardstock as l did and stick down. I rubbed ink over mine to make the pattern stand out more.
 Cut a 4" x 3" patterned paper for the front panel and stick down.
Cut a 3" x 3 3/4" plain card and score in half. This will be used to write your sentiment. Place this over the embossed card and white middle section of the card

Cut a 3 1/2" x 3" piece of card and matt onto a patterned paper of your choice. Centre this on the front panel and place it above the fold.

Decorate as desired
To finish off l tied sheer ribbon around the card to hold it together

The patterned papers I used are from Graphic 45 
I hope this has inspired you to make some  quick cards!
