Right Where You Should Be!

Good Monday Morning!

I hope you all had a very Happy Easter!  My family had a wonderful gathering and I got a chance to spend time with all my siblings including the step brother and sisters that I grew up with but are no longer related to us  through marriage!!  But we all are still close including my mom and her ex-husband!  It was a fabulous day eating, laughing and boating on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida!

Today is  Monday which means it is time to Hippity Hop!

Hippity Hopping is where {ippity} peeps sign up  to have their blogs showcase creations made with {ippity} stamps.  Eryn is our hostess today and she has also chosen our challenge for this week.
 For this week's {ippity} Hippity Hop Challenge 18 (IHHC18) 
she has asked us to make a 
trifold card.  

We hope you will play along with us!  The Resource section on SCS has some tutorials that can teach you how to make one!

I used the {ippity} sentiment from the set called Where You Should Be.  If you read my interview on the {ippity} blog from Saturday then you might remember that this is my favorite {ippity} set.  It means so much when you think about it.  And it reminds me to find peace with where I find myself in life sometimes because there is a reason I am there!  That's a comfort to me!!  

The dimensions of the trifold card are as follows...

  • The finished size is 4 x 5.5 inches
  • The left flap with the flower DP from October Afternoon and the flower measure  4 x 3 3/8in.
  • The right flap (not including the sentiment panel) is 4 x 2 1/8in.
  • The sentiment panel is 2 6/8 x 2 6/8in. and extends over the edge of the right flap by 7/8 of an inch.


So to create this card just start with a base piece of card stock that is 4 x 11 and score the piece at 3 3/8 from the left and 2 1/8 from the right and decorate away!  I hope you will give this one or another trifold card a try and share it with us in the SCS Gallery.  Put IHHC18 and ippity as your keywords!!

The card was designed to follow Sketch 13 (SC13) from SCS Master sketch list.  I am still working my way gradually through all of them!




I only included a stamped sentiment on this card because that is what today's CAS (CAS61) challenge on SCS is.  You can see what the rest of my fellow DT members made for this challenge by visiting the forum HERE.  It was  great challenge to make the card look pretty from the front without using any pretty image stamps.  But this sentiment was perfect!!  :-)  I hope you will play along with us too!!

To help keep the card closed I created a little cut in the left side panel to tuck the right flap under.  I later covered that up with the flower that you can see above!


Here you can see a picture of the trifold card partially opened.


And here it is opened completely showing the inside of the card ready for the greeting to be written!

I am looking forward to the hop today as I always find such wonderful inspiration from viewing your blogs! Have a fabulous Monday and may your bucket on the first day of this week be filled with achievable goals and the motivation to get them done!!

Oh Kelly, this card is sooo pretty. I really like the way you hid the tab behind that flower (I'm lifting that idea). Thanks for sharing.

Kelly, this is so pretty!
And this sentiment is also one of my favorites as well. I have had to remind myself of this a lot over the last few years. I would be nice to see what the Lord has planned for us, however this quote is a comfort to know he has a plan!

Thank you for sharing your project and a piece of your Heart!
