Sunflower Tri-Fold Card

Hello crafty friends,
Today’s post is of a quick card I made the other day. It was for a challenge in one of the Facebook groups I belong to. We were to create a tri-fold card.
So here is what I came up with.

Here’s a look at my finished card. I used the tri-fold card cf from PCW. The pretty patterned papers are from the DCWV Halloween and Fall Stack.

Here is a closer look at the big pretty sunflower. I actually cut the brown top piece out of plain white cards stock and then inked it with my Saddle Ink Pad using a dabbing technique to achieve the “textured look. I used my Autumn Terracotta Ink Pad to ink the edges of the flower as well as the New England Ivy Ink Pad for the leaves from the Enchantment Ink Pad set. I also used some Bisque Liquid Pearls  to add some pearl accents to the front of the top flap of the card.

Here is a view with the top flap open. Perfect for my thanksgiving sentiment. This view also shows the pretty leafy panels that are a part of the cut file set. I simply cut them out of kraft paper and then added a layer of that pretty yellow-orange patterned paper underneath.

Here is a view of the entire card open. I left the inside middle blank as I will be sending this card on to IFTL for their card drive this month. They are trying to get 200 cards to be able to give one to each resident at a senior care facility. So PLEASE head over there now and get the details. Take a few moments of your crafty time to create a few cards and pop them in the mail. Madison and Cindy will be so grateful and I know they will be a blessing to the recipients.
