Bloomin' Tri Fold Card
I am looking for the direction for the Bloomin Tri Fold card made and posted hy MandyB. She added some directions but I'm not sure she has the front middle panel stamped to meet up with the back panel stamping to make it even.

Can someone take a look at it and help me out?

Can you post a link to it?

Bloomin' Tri-Fold Card for Spring by MandyB - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
Here's a link, but I'm not sure I understand the question :confused: (and I don't think it's posted in the best place for people to respond to as this section is for actual tutorials, I think).
As she says, it's a sheet of card trimmed to 10 1/2 inches wide, and probably 8 1/2 high, scored at 3 1/2 and 7 inches, with the stamping angled upwards and then fussy cut. With the markings on the Scor-Pal you wouldn't even need to trim the card down, as it has marks for scoring brochures which score a letter page in 3 e evenly.

Wow, what a great looking card. Guess what I will be doing tomorrow. Thanks for posting the link Sabrina. Yahoo, love a new project.

When you stamp the card from top right to bottom left, and cut it, once you fold the card, the back side of the middle panel is blank and cut up. How does her card match up with the front and back middle panel with the flowers?

"front middle panel stamped to meet up with the back panel stamping to make it even."

Clear as mud?

Sabrina: I read her directions. But they still don't tell me how to stamp the middle panel in the back to make it coincide with the front when you cut it.

I've seen these before a long time ago and I think you have to stamp BOTH sides of the top of the card, then cut. The ones I saw before were cut straight, then stamped, so it was easier. But, for hers, it looks like you'd have to stamp both sides. Make sense?

She stamps the first and last panels on the front of the card and the middle panel on the back of the card. If you look closely, there is some overlapping of the flowers when the card would be shut.

Does this help?

I'm not so sure they do match up perfectly. If you look at the pink one, it definitely doesn't match up where it's folded. It's hard to tell with the other two but I don't think they match up either. I think if you really want it to match, you'd have to fold the card the way it will be when finished, stamp the one in the front, cut around it, but cut both layers, and then use a stamp positioner to stamp the one behind so that it matches up. You would only have to do this for the images that have another image right behind it.

Also, like Jeri said, stamp both sides of the paper.
