Friends with Flair & Growing in Unity Day 4



Thanks for stopping by today! Sorry I didn't have a Growing in Unity post yesterday; some things came up that prevented me from getting it up in time. I'll post one more Unity/{ippity} project tomorrow for one more chance to get your name into the draw for Rows of Yummies. Sound good? Thought so! I'll draw a winner on Sunday.  =D

Today I made a birthday card using a trifold technique. I've done gate folds and a couple of other kinds of folds, but never this kind. I got my inspiration from a photo on the Caardvarks blog, and just happened to have this really cute patterned paper with the birds on it.

There are a total of six visible panels on this kind of card, not including the backside. The trick is to come up with enough interesting things to keep the eye moving, but they should all be tied together somehow. For mine, it was the bird stamps that coordinate with the birdhouses.

supplies ~ kraft: Bazzill, cardstock: DCWV Indian Summer Cardstock Stack, dsp: DCWV Green Stack, ribbon: Joann's, stamps: Unity February Stampin Store Kit {Life is Fabulous}


Also remember I'm offering a special deal on one of the kits I used this week, Where You Should Be! Order this kit from me sometime this week, and you'll pay only $15. No shipping! Plus, I'll send along a paper sampler pack! My blog is set up with regular prices and shipping, but I'll adjust your bill once you place your order. Just hop over to my {ippity} blog!

Thanks for stopping by to visit today; have a great FWF hop and a wonderful weekend!
