Tri-fold FUN!

So today I'm sharing the second card we made at my Advanced Cards class August 2017.  This is a tri-fold card featuring the SU Birthday Memories Suite on pages 68 and 69 of the annual catalog.  This was such a very fun card to make!  The fox and the banner were cut out of the Birthday Memories DSP with the matching framelits.  All of the phrases are from the same set - which makes it wonderful to use!
Below is the diagram of how I get two tri-fold cards from one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock.  The perfect size to fit in our A2 envelopes.  Excuse the bits of stamping here and there - this is one of the ways I re-use my used grid pad papers.
You can see how the card is open here - the last panel featured one of the balloons popping with a Balloon Honeycomb Embellishment; and a square of lighter yellow DSP so that you can have a spot to write to the recipient.

Here is the back side of the card with the sentiment stamped so that when the card is folded you can still see it.

You can see below on the card on the right, that if you are going to mail this card you'll want to attach only one side of the balloon, and leave the honeycomb closed.  We added a small piece of tear tape on it, so that the recipient can peel it off, open the balloon and stick it. I'll put a little note in the card with instructions.  There is no way that open honeycomb balloon will make it through the mail un-crushed - lol!

What a fun and happy card!  Hope you liked it too!  See you soon.  ~Maureen
