Stampin' Up! Manhattan Flower

I love this card, and so simple.  Searching the net I found this on Barbara Jean Smith blog.

The new embossing folders can be used in all sorts of ways and this is one that is effective and easy.
You have a positive image on the front and negative image on the inside fold.

Tri-Fold Card

Take a 6"  x  12" piece of cardstock.  Fold and score the card so that the right flap is inside and the left flap is on top.
Take the left side flap and line it up with the Manhattan Embossing folder so that the fold in the card lines up with the edge of the design.
Run through the Big Shot. Take not of the direction of the folder.  Your arrow should be up.  I ran mine through sideways, completely open.
Now do the same thing to the opposite side, only moving the folder not the cardstock.
Take not again the folder is now flipped.  The arrow is underneath but still pointing upwards.
This gives you the positive and negative sides.

Cut edges of the roses, moving the cardstock that is not embossed.  Cut up to the fold line and continue up the fold line.

Add an insert to your card, I doodled around the edge with a Stampin' Write Marker and stamped a small image in the corner.
Held it closed with a piece of Tafetta Ribbon.
