First attempt . . .

. . . at a tri-fold card. That was this week's Timeless Tuesday (Flourishes) #150. And it was kind of fun. : ) The card also uses the JUGS #118 sketch challenge and the Pixie Cottage #102 challenge to create a monochromatic card (I love those, I don't have to match colors!). I used all Verve stamps on this one. The cross, "Jesus" and "the reason for the season" are from the Richly Blessed set; "love" is from Text Objects; and the "Merry Christmas" is from Ornamental Christmas.

As you can see in the last two pictures, I used some acetate under the front cutout to support the snowflakes and the sentiment diecut. I don't know how many tri-fold cards I will make since you have to use larger than 8x11 paper, but I do like the result.
