This Magnolia Lane Double Trifold card features a fun fold I hadn’t tried before. Thanks to JanB from the UK (Jan Mansor Brown) at http://www.janbcards.com for the card design. I just took off some layers to make it a bit faster, and changed the color of he card base…but she gets the credit!
To me, this gorgeous card shouts Southern charm, hospitality, elegance and refinement!
With such beautiful Designer Series Paper, an outstanding fun fold, a little stamping & blending, plus a couple of accessories and… you’ve created a masterpiece!

- Whisper White Cardstock – scraps for belly band and diecut on back of belly band
- Petal Pink Cardstock – scraps for belly band
- Cut and score card base per instructions on JanB video or follow these:
- **On 6” side, line up top at 1” on right-hand side and cut from 1” down to 5”, lift the bar and move blade down to 7” and cut down to 11”. Turn cardstock 180° and repeat.
- Next, line 12” side at top of Scoring Tool and score from top to bottom at 2”, 4”, 8” 10”. Go back to the beginning of the line and score from 1” down to the first cut line, then score at 5” from the start down to first cut line, then score at 7” from the start down to first cut line, then score at 11” from the start down to first cut line. Turn cardstock 180° and repeat.
- Fold properly according to JanB video and burnish all folds (HARD but carefully).
- Adhere all DSP strips to Pink Petal cardbase, being careful to only put glue on the T portion of the two large end pieces. (Leaving unglued the square area that doesn’t fit on the T shape.) See Jan B video.
- Stamp greeting and Magnolia bloom in Early Espresso on white square, then carefully color with Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink, So Saffron Blends and outline with Pool Party Blends to make it pop. Attach to the center of the inside.
- Lay the long strip of DSP onto the long strip of white to form the belly band…wrapping around the folded card with some wiggle room, but not too loose. Once you’ve made the folds, give it a practice run to make sure it slides easily over the folds of the card base. THEN glue the overlapped ends on the FRONT of the belly band to be covered by the diecut circles.
- Diecut Stitched Shape circles: 2 ⅜” Petal Pink and 1 ⅞” Whisper White.
- Use Subtles Texture Emboss folder on pink circle.
- Stamp bloom in Early Espresso on white circle and color in with Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Blends, then outline with Pool Party Blend to make it pop.
- Attach white circle to pink circle with dimensionals and glue the pink layer flat onto the belly band.
- Wrap green twine around the stem of a cork leaf and attach to bloom on diecut circle with glue dots or liquid glue.
- Add Champagne Rhinestones if desired.
- Optional back for belly band: die cut Whisper White scrap piece with 2 ¾ x 1 ½” Nested Label die and stamp with blooms and personalized name stamp if desired.
- Be proud of yourself for making such a lovely card and then send it to someone special!
