Thursday Tutorial--Creating a Tri-fold Card With Your Cricut

Hi, everyone, Amy here with another Fantabulous Thursday Tutorial.  I bought my Expression in December 2009.  I loved it and I used it quite a bit.  But THEN I bought a Gypsy (it was on sale!).  Not quite sure what to do with it, I went on-line to look for some tutorials.  And that was when I discovered Sheila McShea at She's a Sassy Lady.  Well, that's when my Cricut use really took off.  It's so much easier to use my E when I can design anywhere and cut later.  PLUS I save paper and mats, and I can do so many more things than I could do with my E alone.  

Sheila has kindly agreed to allow me to post one of her videos here today, but I strongly urge you to check them all out--it will really take your Cricut skills up a notch or two.  Keep in mind that Cricut Craft Room works in much the same way as a Gypsy, so you can adapt her techniques for CCR. 

This video shows you how to make a tri-fold card using welding techniques. 


In this video she refers to an earlier video about making a tri-fold template.  You can find it HERE.

Thanks, Sheila for sharing your talents with us today!
