Tricorn Fold

 Morning and I made a Tricorn card that I saw on Vickis blog. I found the topper already made using dies from John Next Door,Stampin Up and Spellbinders I think the little butterfly is Chocolate Baroque, just had to find some p.paper to go with from Paper Favourites.Folds flat to go in an envelope too.

A lovely mixed media piece Carol, the pops of black against the neutral colours works very nicely.

Wow, what a beautiful fold card! I still have been avoiding different folds even though I love them. They seem so difficult to me.

Your Tricorn fold card is lovely! The topper combination with dies from various sources are intricate and beautiful. It's great that it folds flat for easy sending in an envelope.
