Triangle Tri-Fold Card

I created this card for a challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #19-- a green theme with some ribbon somewhere on the project, The Paper Variety-Lets See Green and Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #3. The Challenge was to create a project using green, white and one optional color.
This is the first time I tried a Triangle Tri-fold, and it is not to difficult. I took a 4x12 piece of cardstock and scored it 4 and 8". Then you score your fist block from corner to corner on a diagonal and repeat for the last block, make sure you score them both in the same direction. Fold them in opposite directions so they meet each other when you close the card. I then add 2 scalloped circles, when you attach the pop dots only attach to the one half of the fold so you can fold your card and your ribbon goes under this scallope to tie your card closed. I know this is not very good directions, there are some fabulous Utube videos, just google a Triangle Tri-fold card and you'll have one made in no time.
The cupcake cut is From My Kitchen cart and the stamped sentiment is from my very first Papertrey Ink set, love them. The inside sentiments are computer generated. If you have any questions on how to make this card will be happy to try and answer. Come join in on all the fun and thanks for stopping by!!
