Tri Fold Birthday Card

Today I needed a card for my friend's Grandmother.  We are all very close, so I call here Nana as well.  This is the birthday card I made for her.  She will turn 88 tomorrow.  To make this card, I two sheets of card stock.  I turned the paper at a diaganal and cut from the corner to about 4 inches above the corner at the other end.  I guess that would be about a 45 degree angle, I am not real sure as I was pretty bad at math.  Then I placed a fold at 3.6 inches and another at 7.2 inches and folded back and forth.  I picked two colors that I liked (Gumball Green and Melon Mambo) and cut the exact same angle and size, then I used an border punch to make sure you can see both colors on the top angle.  After that it was all creating my card from there, using stamps, ink, DSP, and "bling" all Stampin' Up! products I love.  This was my first Diaganal Tri Fold Card, but I am pretty sure it won't be my last.
