Angled tri-fold cards may look confusing but creating easy birthday cards with this layout only requires a few simple steps. Your handmade cards can include a finished look with an additional layer of designer paper cut to the same tri-fold. Plus we’re kicking off the new 2022-2023 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog with new products in today’s video.

Fun fold cards allow the receiver a unique way to open and close a handmade card. While the belly band on this card is not required, you won’t want to miss my tips about this additional “finishing touch”. Don’t miss the free template for this card in the free project sheet below.

Angled Tri-Fold Cards | Details

The new annual catalog includes 184-pages of amazing samples and products. Among them is the Nature’s Prints Bundle found on page 91. Gorgeous blue and gray tones grace these 12″ x 12″ sheets of designer papers! The Sun Prints Suite includes the Bundle plus the new Fern 3D Embossing Folder to enhance the product coordination.

The angles on this card are created using two measurements for both the card base and the designer papers. Marking the positions of these measurements is easy using the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer (linked in the project sheet). The clear cutting guide on this trimmer is useful not just for scoring and cutting but for making those occasional pencil marks.

Allow your focal point to rest on the belly band which is easily removed and admired. The tri-fold opens easily to reveal the inside greeting of this card.

Angled Tri-Fold Cards |Cup of Tea

I love a good cup of tea so this new Bundle of products (stamp set + coordinating dies) immediately caught my eye! The Tea Boutique Suite of products will be found on pages 12-13 of the new catalog and include an array of bright colors!

Among the suite you’ll find the Tea Boutique 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. This 48-sheet package of double-sided papers provide for lots of uses since one side includes generic designs that can be used all year long.

The dies are incredible for this Bundle and provide details that die cut small flowers and tea tags, 3D lemon wedges and even hearts.

Notice the subtle floral images on the belly band? This flower is from the new Sending Smiles stamp set (also offered as a Bundle with coordinating dies).
