A Triangle Tri Fold card

The challenge at the Bugaboo Stamps Catch the Bug Challenge blog this week is to make a card with a different kind of fold.  Another challenging challenge!  I must admit I'm not too fond of fancy looking folds and things, but if you hop over to the Catch the Bug challenge blog you will see that the sample cards from the design team are stunning and totally inspirational.  So, feeling inspired, I did a search and found a tutorial for a Triangle Tri Fold from Split Coast Stampers (see here... they have tonnes of other great tutorials too).

This is what the card looks like folded up...

Then, when you untie the ribbon...

Here are a couple of close-ups:

This image is a digital freebie called Clyde from Bugaboo Stamps.  I just realised looking at these photos that I forgot to colour his nostrils in, so I will go and do that now!  The sentiment is from Amy R Sentiments (purchased from Funky Kits). The papers are from October Afternoon and the card itself is quite small (about 10cm square)... it was the largest I could make with an A4 sheet of card.  Next time I might try a bigger card using an A3.  I have just added to my collection of googly eyes from the local craft shop, so I thought these little ones would be perfect for Clyde.  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the image is coloured with copics (see below for details).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Yay!  It's Friday!  Have a good one!
