Tried my hand at the Folded Tree cards....After I finally figured out the folding it went quite quick and I really like the 3D look. Making these with my club tonight. Used the Air Art tool on the blue paper but hard to make out in the scan...sponged thyme ink on all edges too including the tree.

thanks for the compliments...I got these directions and fiddled around with the folds until I got it right. Used glue dots which helped keep it all together.
These are the directions:
There are 4 squares of designer paper (and a little piece for the
trunk). The sizes of the squares are 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2 and 3 inches.
Using your bone folder (sharp creases work best) fold the square in
half into a rectangle both ways so you have what looks like 4 squares.
Then fold into a triangle both ways -- so it's folded in half both
ways! (So it is folded in half every way it can be folded.) Then fold
back into a rectangle -- holding the paper with the fold on the top,
push in the sides to make a triangle. Take the two corners from the
top triangle and fold them to the center fold until they meet at the
Then layer them on cardstock to form the tree!
