Make these easy tri fold cards for wow cards that show off the Designer Series Paper.
You can make this card with layering the DSP just on the base card, or you can add another layer of cardstock like the example on the right.
Keep scrolling to get the directions and measurements for both.
You get to show off both sides of your paper with this card using the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper. Notice how the strip across the front is the flip side of the paper. The card opens like this.
How cute is this puppy card using the Sweet Stocking Designer Series Paper? This would be fun to send for a kid’s Christmas card!
The same paper is used for both of these cards, just reversed in which side is on the outside. Do you have a preference?
This card using the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper, with all of the presents, is perfect for adding a gift card inside.
(Sentiment is from the Merriest Moments stamp set)
One of the cards is tied with ribbon and the other two do not have any ribbon. These cards will lay flat so its up to you how you want to finish them off.
These Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper cards feature the colors of Bumblebee and Misty Moonlight. Yellow and blue make a great color combination.
The card on the left has the extra strip for the front cut into three pieces to give a different look.
Vellum has been added under the sentiment from the Thinking Thanks & Peace stamp set.
The Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper is another favorite. These are done as birthday cards and think of all of the other occasions you could make these for!
The two cards look quite different with one featured a more subdued look with gingham checks and the other bright with pansies.
How different these cards look from each other using the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper. The second card uses two of the 1″ strips together to form a brick patio.
Now, for an entirely different look, use the In The Wild Designer Series Paper to make fun masculine cards or kids cards.
How to Make an Easy Trifold Card
Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper to 5-1/4″ x 12″.
Score @ 4″ and 8″ and fold into a trifold. Attach to a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card base.
Thats it – honestly!
You can cut two of these out of one piece of Designer Series Paper and you will be left with a 1″ x 12″ strip.
Cut that into 4″ lengths and that is what you will flip over and use on the front of your cards.
Do you want to add the extra layer?
Cut your Designer Series Paper 5″ x 11-1/4″. Score @ 3-3/4″ and 7-1/2″. This can be layered onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of cardstock and then the 4″ x 5-1/2″ card base.
