Birds and Branches Trifold Card

Today I'm sharing another card I made using the Birds and Branches Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.  I was inspired for this card by the card on page 120 of the catalogue.  I love the die that cuts out the circle with the branches.  

For my card I made a trifold card (I'm not sure if that's actually the official name for this fancy fold, but that's what I call it!).  This is my "go to" fancy fold, and it's early to make!

Isn't this pretty in Pool Party, Petal Pink and with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper!


  1. Cut Pool Party cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4".  Fold in half on the 4 1/4" score line and then fold on the 2 1/8" score line back toward the fold.
  2. Cut Designer Series Paper 1 7/8" x 5 1/4" and adhere to front flap using Stampin' Seal.
  3. Cut Whisper White cardstock 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
  4. Cut Pool Party cardstock 3 1/4" x 3 1/4".
  5. Cut the circle with branches from the middle of the Pool Party square.
  6. Stamp a branch using Soft Suede Ink and leaves using Mint Macaron ink on the Whisper White cardstock square - on the bottom right side of the piece - so it shows through the circle cut out of the Pool Party cardstock.
  7. Adhere the Pool Party cardstock to the Whisper White cardstock using Dimensionals in each of the 4 corners.
  8. Stamp sentiment on a 1/2" by 2 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut tag end in the right hand side and diagonal end on the left hand side.
  9. Adhere to square using Stampin' Seal.
  10. Stamp 3 flowers in Petal Pink ink and the Bird in Soft Suede ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. Cut out with coordinating dies.
  11. Colour bird using Light and Dark Petal Pink and Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends
  12. Adhere the bird and flowers to square using Dimensionals
  13. Adhere to card front using Dimensionals making sure that the Dimensionals are only on the card flap.
  14. Adhere Champagne Rhinestones to each of the flower centres.
