There are several tri-fold cards under Resources. Is it one of those?

I have that same learning curve! What I do it a mock up on printer paper (and usually one out of the trash) to see if I can do it.

I would be glad to help but I don't know which trifold you are tying to do.

Are you talking about the Tri Shutter? You can search on samples with TLC221, and here are some good instructions:

That is the one that first popped into my mind! It looks like you cut from fold to fold. I haven't done this one yet but I have it bookmarked. I love this card!

If it's the trifold card you score as directed and then flip the card sideways and cut from the first to the last cut on either side (cut from the 2" to the 10".) Try it on scrap paper first. I love these cards.

I had seen some of these cards in the gallery and loved them but it looked too difficult so I hadn't even attempted it myself. Thanks to you ladies...I finally had to try one and it really was NOT difficult. It's Sunday so I can't post it to SCS...but here is a link to where I've stored it on my blog:

Thanks for the inspiration! I'll definately do more of these in the future.
