The Cuttlebug Spot ~ Tri-Fold Valentine

This week over at The Cuttlebug Spot their challenge is to make a Tri-fold Valentine card.  Well I decided to make a Gatefold card... I think this is what they call it. I have never made a tri-fold card before so I was up for the challenge! I used my Cuttlebug Stylized Flower folder and sanded it a bit. I also decided to use the spellbinders large deck rectangles, layered them, for my sentiment. The sentiment is from Stampin Up. I really wanted to make this a simple, clean and straight to the point card for my husband. He travels for his job and I think he will be out of town for Valentines Day. I plan on sneaking this into his brief case, just to reassure him that its okay he isn't here with me! Hope you enjoy!


  1. Very pretty! Great embossing! I got your email, I'll email you back tonight!

  2. Very nice. I'm new to card making AND to the cuttlebug and I want to learn these types of cards.
    Great job.

  3. Great card, Kim! I love the black, white and red color combination. Love the embossed flowers and red ribbon. Thanks for stopping by my blog. So glad you entered the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge. Good luck!

  4. Beautiful card Kim! I love the black, white, and red combo, I think it is perfect for a hubby or male friend. You did a tri-fold card, the gate fold is also a tri-fold. It has three panels, so your'e ok. Best of luck on the CBS challenge, and thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. Have a lovely week.

    Hugz, xx
