Tri-fold card with rose corner

Hi everyone, Janja here!

For today's post, I prepared a tri-fold card with a bookmark. I used a part of the new release of CottageCutz dies - This N That.
Let's see how it is made.

For the card we need:
  • white card base: 12.75 x 5.5", folded at 4.25 and 8.5"
  • patterned paper: 4 x 5.2" (6 pieces)
  • white cardstock: 3.7 x 5"
  • brown cardsrock
  • white pearl cardstock
  • cord and wooden beads
Fold the card base 2 times. With the largest die from rectangle set, cut corners on one side of the card base.

Cut out the patterned paper and roses with the dies: English Rose Corner and Victorian Rose Vine.

First make the interior of the card. The best way to cut the flap from patterned paper is if it is placed on a white card base and draw edge. 

Repeat the process on the outer side of the card. Cut out words - best wishes, and attach it together with the rose corner to the card.

For closing the card use self adhesive round pads. On is covered with tiny loops and the other with tiny flexible hooks. 

As a small attention we add a bookmark in the pocket. Cut it out of pearly paper with the die Fancy Bookmark and decorate it. Insert the rope and add wooden beads. 
We decorate same way the pocket for the bookmark, which was cut out from the patterned paper with the Fancy pocket plus die.

For the end I would like to remind you on our 

Ejoy and have fun.

I've never seen a card base like this, and am happy you showed us how. I love the little set you've made!

this is so pretty Janja-and I love how you used the rectangle die to cut an angle-creative work-a great idea to make a bookmark for the inside of the pocket die-
