Heeheehee....have to laugh at my self!  Have you ever looked at a fancy fold card and think easy peasey has directions!  Well......................I saw a different way of doing the tri-fold card and really liked it so after getting instructions from the site (and I printed them out) I went down to my craft room to duplicate the fold.  6 scores and only 2 cuts on a 5.5 x 12 piece of cardstock.  No problem right??  I made all my score...double checked instruction.....made my at instructions and started to fold.  Somethings not right..............this isn't how it looked on the picture. (instructions didn't come with a picture)  So back upstairs to go to the computer (yes I know I should have one in the craft room) and re-look it up.  Yep!!! That's what I thought....doesn't look at all like the picture.  LOL  Seems when I was making the 1.5" scores and the instructions said to turn paper around and repeat I was not to turn the paper just flip it up so all the 1.5 scores and the cuts are parallel.  DUH!  Anyway this is what I ended up with.  

And below is what it was suppose to look like.

The more I looked at it the more I thought "what the heck" I'll use the BooBoo one anyway.  Maybe I just created a "NEW" fold?  Nah...I'm sure there's been one done like this before and if so I won't steal their gusto by claiming the fold is mine.  I do think it's a different look though.  Now to think about how to decorate it.  Since I'm only home for a short time I'm not sure if I'll get to it.  So your going to have to wait.  Sorry.  I'll get to it as soon as I can.

Til then..........
