6x6 tri-fold valentines card

These cards have been around for a while, and when I made mine I wasn't happy with it because it didn't seem stable enough and I wanted a proper card front that I could decorate.

So here's how i made it. I will upload a template with the dimensions as directed.

1: Cut 2 pieces of cardstock measuring 15cm X 30cm (6"x12").

2: Score card front at 15cm (6'') along the landscape (long) side and fold, set aside.

3:Turn the second piece around to portrait (short) side. Using a pencil lightly mark at 5cm (2")and 10cm (4") on either end. Line up first marks with a ruler top to bottom and cut from 5cm (2") to 25cm (10"). Repeat with second marks.

4: Turn back around to landscape side and score at 5cm (2"), down to beginning of first cut
and beginning of second cut down to bottom edge. Score again top to bottom at 10cm (4")and 20cm (8"). Finally score from the end of the first cut to the end of the second cut.

5: Now begin folding. Fold the first top and bottom crease towards you creating a valley fold. Along the second crease fold back the top and bottom portion back, creating a mountain fold. The crease inbetween will need to be a valley fold. The third crease top and bottom valley fold, and middle mountain fold. Finally the last centre crease a valley fold.

6: Glue the back part of the first panel of the tri-fold to the inside edge of the card front. Fold closed the tri-fold, and glue the back panel. Line up the edge of the panel with the back of the card front and close the back of the card to adhere. Decorate as desired.
