Pleased As Punch Tri-Fold Window Cards
This last pair of cards from my Pleased As Punch LIVE Class features a fun fold and a cool window opening on the front flap!  I was inspired to create my own version when I received the Mango Melody swap card (pictured on the right above) from Terri Gaines.  I'll give all the basic measurements on this post, but be sure to watch the LIVE Class Replay video linked below to see how to assemble it properly.

Card Base Basics—There are actually three parts to this card design. First the quarter sheet card base, a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Highland Heather. Secondly, the inside of the card, an 8" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock, scored at the 4" mark.
And finally, the front flap, which is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Seaside Spray cardstock, scored at the 3-1/4" mark. I die-cut a Stitched So Sweetly window on the top part of this card front, then embossed it with the 3D Subtle Embossing Folder. The tab on this front piece adheres to the back-side of the edge of the Whisper White card base.

Center Card DécorBefore assembling, I decorated the right "fold" side of the Whisper White card base (it opens to the right) with a 1" x 5-1/4" strip of Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper.  Next, I stamped a Timeless Tulips stem and leaf in Granny Apple Green, positioning it so the flower will eventually show through the front window.

Inside The Card—I also stamped a Timeless Tulip on the inside of the card in Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather.  In this photo, you can more easily see that the front card flap is adhered behind the left edge of the white card base.  Once all of the stamping was complete, I mounted the Whisper White card onto the Highland Heather card base using Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Pleasing Tulip—I punched a tulip shape from the Pleased As Punch DSP with the Tulip Builder Punch and popped it up over the stem. I added a few Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins and a Whisper White Baker's Twine bow.
Sweet Sentiment—I added a 3/4" wide strip of Seaside Spray gingham paper from the In Color DSP pack across the bottom of the front and also the bottom of the strip that shows on the right side. Next, I stamped the Timeless Tulips sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a 2-1/4" x 3/4" piece of Purple Posy. I added a 1/4" strip of Granny Apple Green banner behind it before popping it up with Dimensionals onto the card front.

Two Cool—The second card is the original swap card I received from Terri Gaines that inspired my card above.  She started with a Granny Apple Green card base decorated with the striped Pleased As Punch DSP. Her front Mango Melody window was also die-cut with Stitched So Sweetly dies, this time in a scallop rectangle shape.

She cut a small Granny Apple Green stem for her tulip and added a couple of leaves punched from the Pleased As Punch DSP. So cute!  Thanks for sharing your adorable card, Terri!
