"A triptych ( // trip-tik; (from the Greek adjective τρίπτυχοs ("three-fold"), from tri-= "three" + ptysso= "to fold") is a work of art (usually a panel painting) which is divided into three sections, or three carved panels which are hinged together and can be folded shut or displayed open. It is therefore a type of polyptych, the term for all multi-panel works. The middle panel is typically the largest and it is flanked by two smaller related works, although there are triptychs of equal-sized panels. The form can also be used for pendant jewelry."
This definition is from Wikipedia and it also applies to cardmaking.
If you type Triptych Cards into google images you will find all sorts of shapes and sizes. They are fun to make.

|An iPhoto alteration of my self portrait|
I have a new iPhone and was playing with it the other day. I wasn't happy with the self portraits but when I played with them in iPhoto I was . These were taken in the mirror of my en-suit.
The brown flower is by the metre and I drew and cut and shaped the leaves myself. The other flower is made from 3 circles, scrunched, distressed and layered. The stamp is a wooden stamp from Kaisercraft.
I used the Scor-Pal to make the lines on the apricot paper and then sanded it.
