Star TriFold Birthday Card

  I talked to my cousin Bev yesterday and she received this card, so it's safe to post! I made it for her birthday, which was December 29th. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEV!
  This past year, a friend and very talented paper craft person, Valerie, gave a class at Photo Memories, a scrapbooking store here in Halifax on how to make this gorgeous Star Tri-Fold card. 
  If you are in the Halifax area, there might be kits available at The Cutting Garden and there is a good video on YouTube HERE
Here are some more photos: 
The area beside the fairy, is where I wrote the greeting.

I made a pocket and inserted 3 old photos of Bev and I growing up. I matted each photo and added photo corners. This photo is a bit blurry, but it's my favourite photo of Bev & I. I'm the one with hardly any hair!

These 2 photos are the envelope; front and back:

Entering this creation in the following:

New Year's is just about here!

Get Inky!
