Tri-fold Love Note...

Good morning! I'm not sure what it is about the love not sized card (3" x 3"), but I just LOVE them! They are large enough to be a "card", but small enough to hidden in a loved one's bag, briefcase, or purse (for them to find later)!

Instead of the regular card, I decided to make a Tri-Fold card...but trimmed it down to the love note size.

I stamped this wonderful quote from Hellen Keller (from the Lasting Impressions set Faith & Hope) in Rich Cocoa Memento ink onto Choice Buttercream card stock. I just love the flourishes that Taylor included in the Faith & Hope set...and had to add one to my card (I embossed it so it would show up better on the patterned paper)! :-)

Did you all read Taylor's post yesterday? The Taylored Expressions store is now back to their regular shipping schedule!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful and creative day! ~Laurie

Beautiful card! So elegant yet earthy. I was hoping to see a view of the card open since it's a tri-fold, and exactly what size is it? 4x4? I would imagine that it's a bit harder to make a tri-fold card this small. You did such a great job. Love the sentiment, flower and edging.

Again, it's just beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

Your card is so cute and shabby. I love the way the sunflower brings it all together as a whole!

Love that brown scalloped border with the big yellow sunflower! Pretty!
