GROWING IN UNITY!

Here we are again...GROWING IN UNITY!  Thank you for coming by today!

So, a friend of mine wanted some simple cards for her daughter to write quick notes to send off in the mail.  Now, if you are as old as me, do you remember those tri-fold cards?  You write on the inside of the card... the outside was decorated...then when you folded the card (tri-fold), it became an envelope...remember? And, to top it off you put a sticker on the ends to keep the card closed.  Okay, maybe you don't remember, and I'm probably the only one who remembers these...ha! 

Anyway, this tri-fold card has to be simple, because there is no envelope to hold anything inside. 
In a sense, these are really CAS cards

Well, here is my rendition of these tri-fold cards...since I couldn't put any embellies, all I could do was stamp and color.  The white card in the back of this picture is the full card opened up; the Crushed Curry card in the middle has one end of the card folded; and the Bermuda Bay card up front has it completely folded.  You could see how they each have an area to write the address and place a stamp on it...ready to go.

OMGosh!!! I just love these tri-fold notes. I forgot about these, but I might just have to make a few of them. Love all the stamps you used. I remember using the wax seal on them too.....Are you that old?

These are so cute! And I do remember tri-fold cards. My grandmother used to order a ton of them from Current magazine and then she would send a note to me on them for special occasions or just to say hello. When I was little, I would peel off the little sticker closure and addit to my sticker book. Thanks for bringing back a great memory!
