Tri-Fold CARD Tutorial

Happy Wednesday!  Shellye here with a quick and fun TRI-FOLD card tutorial for you. 
Here is my completed card using the November NOOK Kit.
First, you will need to begin with a 6x12 sheet of cardstock or patterned paper (you can you a different size, but modifications will need to be made as to where to score).
Laying your paper lengthwise, you will need to score at 2", 4", 8" and 10" increments (as shown above).
Next, flip your paper vertically.
**You may skip this step and go onto cutting the next lines...I did this more for a visual aid :)**
Make sure that you DO NOT score (or cut) past the 2" and 10" vertical marks (as noted above)
Using an X-Acto knife, cut at 1.5" and 4.5"
^ Your cuts will look like this ^
Next, fold your paper to resemble an accordion or tri-fold wallet.
Cut strips of paper to embellish as desired.
This is the inside of the card
That's all there is to it!  Hope you'll give it a try and have fun with it!
