Trifold Wonder

I am often coming across some very talented peoples blog sites and I see some amazing creations. Last night I found this wonderful site (Bonnie) and amongst her many fabulous cards I saw a trifold card which inspired me. Today I was faced with housework or having a "play" day and quess what won out!!! I set about making this card not realising that it was going to engross me for almost 2 hours.
I fiddled with different papers and stamp sets and finally settled on my new Petal Pizzaz set. I then struggled with what words to use and after thinking who would I want to give this card to that I had turned into such a labour of love and realised it had to be a friend card so used the Wonderful Favourites set.

I am not usually an Orangy person but I love the freshness of Tangerine Tango and it goes really well with Kiwi Kiss. I have fallen in love with all the new In Colours as I knew I would eventually.

The papers are from the Haiku Designer Series papers. I also used a brad from the Fire Rhinestones and the 1", 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches. The card base is Basic Black and there are small amounts of Very Vanilla.

I did have fun making it and Bonnie has very kindly put instructions on her blog site. I am sure that the next one won't take anywhere near as long to make and I don't know if I will ever part with this one but I will do another as they are really effective. Have a go if you are game.
