Today I am going to show you how to create a tri fold birthday card using the Easter Bunnies cutting files.
- Cricut Explore
- Helen’s “Easter Scrapbook Bundle” cutting files.
- Various card stock and paper
- Patterned paper for centre section (unknown).
- Cricut scoring tool
- Double sided tape and hi-tack all-purpose glue
- Googly eye
- Cotton wool ball
- Font is DK Jambo from dafont.com
Creating the Tri Fold card base
I started with my card base. I used 270gsm cardstock for this in a cream/tan colour.
I have a template set up for tri-fold cards, but measurements are below for this size card:
For the base of the card, cut a piece of cardstock 26.8cm x 15.8cm x 5.7cm (see images below for details).
Now, score the card vertically, twice, ready to fold the card in to three even sections.
Next, I uploaded the cutting files in to Design Space and ungrouped them as I only wanted the bunnies and the grass for this card.
I resized the grass to the size I needed (the same width as one section of the card) and a height to suit. I then used the slice tool to take out the section of grass I needed.
I did this twice, to get two pieces of varying heights to cover two of the panels and cut these in two different shades of green. I later add another shorter layer to the back panel as well as another to the back of the first panel for extra support.
I then did the same with the bunnies, slicing out the section I wanted and cutting this on brown card.
Next, I cut out a piece of patterned paper for the middle section of the card.
I then started to assemble the card using double sided tape and glue.
As this was a birthday card, I cut some balloons out to add to the layers as well as some small carrots to theme the card. I tucked these between the layers of grass and secured them with glue.
I added some details to the centre bunny by adding a googly eye and used a cotton wool ball trimmed down for a tail!
Finally, I added a printed sentiment to the card using DK Jambo font.
