A 'Star Fold' or 'Triangle Fold' Card With 'Poised'

With Mother's Day around the corner, I decided to go with a card design that would serve as a unique compliment for mom.  I've seen this card on Pinterest on several occasions.  It's referred to as either a 'Star Fold' or 'Triangle Fold' card.  

I've used the pretty 'Poised' collection for this card.

Card measures approximately 6" inches in height & width.

I honestly thought making this card would be easy.  It turned out that it wasn't as straight forward as I thought it would be.  :-) So something that I assumed I'd be done with within an hour ended up taking me close to three.  You really need to measure the triangles as accurately as possible.  Else the card will not fold correctly.  This is the issue I kept having--I just couldn't get my triangles to come out even!

There are countless of tutorials available for this type of card.  You an find the link for the tutorial I ended up using here.  I found this one to be the easiest to follow.

I've decorated the front of the card with flowers, a card stock element from the collection, pearls & gold Stickles.

The card is held closed with it's own folds & it does open up as shown here.  One can write a sentiment on the inside of the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
