Today’s video shows how to make a Tricorn Fold Card, which is also known as a Double Mini Muira Card. The first card was made by Sam Clayton of Mixed Up Craft and the second one by Gaynor Boyce of Stamp with Joy. It appears that these two Crafters had the same idea as each other in a short space of time, and both gave it a different name. I chose to follow Sam’s video, and have used the name she called her card, but I do acknowledge both Crafters.
Considering the amazing shape of this card, it’s incredibly easy to make, and even more amazingly, the card folds flat! Once folded flat, it fits very comfortably inside a standard Stampin’ Up! envelope. The only problem with this card is deciding if you want to have it vertical or horizontal! Without a doubt, horizontal is my favourite! I was requested to make this video by a Crafter friend, and I’m always happy to accept requests!
After watching Sam’s video, and realising how easy this card is to make, I decided to use current cardstock for my first attempt. Normally I used retired cardstock, so if I mess up, I don’t feel too bad about the waste. The first card I made was the vertical Most Wonderful Time card in Cherry Cobbler. The design I chose from the Designer Series Paper (DSP) – by the same name – is my favourite. It worked well because it’s a small all-over design and not directional!
I used some of the self-adhesive stickers for the image, and stamped the sentiment, from Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, using the Delicata Golden Glitz Metallic Ink. To create the second card I chose to use the fabulous Christmastime is Here DSP, and this small all over design worked really well. This time I decided to make a horizontal card, and fussy cut a design from one of the other sheets of DSP. I had to trim off some sprigs of greenery to make it fit the oval I was using.
There are also other products that go with the Christmastime is Here Bundle which will be available from 1st – 30th November 2019, while stocks last. These include a two box stamp set, matching dies, ribbon, and Gold Glitter Enamel Dots. The great thing about this bundle is that all products are available individually. There is also a gorgeous bracelet on offer. I didn’t buy it because it’s very similar to a bracelet we received when we were on the Incentive Trip in July.
The third card I made was using Coastal Cabana CS with Let It Snow DSP. I needed to make a card immediately before making the video to remind myself of all the steps, and decided that I’d make the video card using the same products. The only change I planned was to make one vertical and one horizontal. I decided this would give me the opportunity to photograph the two side by side, which would make it easier for Crafters to decide if they preferred one over the other.
To create the images for the two Let It Snow cards, I die-cut the oval images from one of the designs from the DSP. There is a stamp set and matching punch to go with this set which gives different options for the image. I stayed with the same sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. When I was deciding where to die-cut the image from the DSP, I made sure there was enough space to stamp the sentiment.
I hope you give this card a try. I’m sure you’ll be surprised at how very easy it is! That’s it from me today. I wish you a very blessed Sunday and look forward to being back with you tomorrow! In the meantime, happy crafting.
