Welcome to The Joy of Sets September 2019 Blog Hop!  You are visiting Angie McKenzie from the USA.  You are either starting with me or landing here after visiting the inspiring blogs of Tricia Butts  (Tricia's Stamping Creations) or Libby Fens (Libby Stamps).  The Joy of Sets is a closed Facebook group created by the lovely Fiona Whitehead from England.  The group is full of Stampin' Up!® enthusiasts who share the love of all things Stampin' Up! - both old and new.  This month's theme is Trifold Cards using any brand products.

There's nothing like a blog hop to challenge me... sure, I've made trifold money holders before but not an actual card!  My parents celebrated their anniversary this past week so I made what I thought was a trifold card until I realized while watermarking the pictures that the card was a Z-fold (check back later this week for details)!  So back to the crafting table...  **WINK**

My creative juices started flowing again as I played around with my card templates.  Being able to see the different sizes allowed me to determine which sizes would work best to create this fun fold without using someone else's measurements.  My final decision was to use two pieces of cardstock - one for the card base and one for the panels for stamping!

Cut a sheet of Mint Macaron cardstock to 5-1/4" x 10-9/16" for the card base.  Score along length at 3-9/16" and 7-1/16".  Burnish the folds with a bone folder.  The finished Very Vanilla panels measure 3-1/4" x 5"; however, when using dies like this card for the edges, an extra inch or so needs to be added to the cut length (ie, 3-1/4" x 6").

The Very Versailles stamp set was one the first three stamp sets that I fell in love with from the new Annual Catalog!  Stamp the script stamp in Crumb Cake and off stamp on grid paper before stamping on the Very Vanilla layer.  Stamp the leaves in Mint Macaron.  Stamp complimenting patterns for each of the inside panels.  Stamp the sentiment in Crumb Cake and center across a strip of 11/16" wide Very Vanilla before adhering it to the front panel.  Trim the access paper with paper snips, if needed, before adhering this front layer to the card front with liquid glue.  Adhere the inside panels with liquid glue. Add the pearls to the card front as a finishing touch for this special card that allows lots of writing space to the recipient.

TIP WHEN USING DIES:  Mark the grid paper with the finished size and line up the panel to be die cut.  Align the highest point of the die to the finished size mark.  Center and straighten the die by aligning it with the grid lines.  Mark the bottom of the die on both sides of the layer onto the grid paper.  Adhere the die with washi tape.  Run the panel and die through a die cutting machine.  Repeat four times.
