Close to My Heart “You Are My Happy” Trifold Cards

Hello everyone and another special welcome to my new followers.

I was looking at Pinterest yesterday and came across instructions for a trifold card.  I have never really done these cards before, preferring to just do standard cards as they are so quick and easy.  However, when I saw the instructions and how easy they are to do I was inspired to try with some scraps of my Chantilly papers and I had purchased a pack of 12 x 12 Colonial White cardstock so it was a lot easier to cut up the card and get the creases right.

This month there is a special deal for National Stamping Month where if you spend $75 you can get the ‘You are My Happy’ stamp set for just $15.  This is really great value as the set normally costs $77 and along with the stamp of the month set at $5 you can get all these stamps for $20 with a value of over $100.  I can’t believe how generous Close to My Heart is!  Anyway the images in this stamp set are cute and quirky and fitted in really well with this card.  I have also used a sentiment from the same set on the front of the card and the birthday greeting is from the Card Chatter – Birthday set.  I am really loving these stamps as they give a nice crisp image and are so easy to place just where you want to put them.
