Mini Tryfolds

Hello AI fans!!

I'm on the Art Impressions blog today with a card set featuring the new Mini Tryfolds! I made two of each using the Garden Window and Hello Friend and I paired them with the new Butterfly Clasp Die!

These Mini Tryfolds are easy to make, the stamps come with instructions and dies! I started by making the card with the instructions. Then I stamped front image on the front of left flap, then used the matching die to cut center. I folded the right flap in and traced the opening with a pencil.

Next I stamped the second image, centering it over the traced shape. With the other die I cut out the center and then folded it over and traced the shape with a pencil. Over the middle of shape I stamped the last, smaller stamp. I repeated this to complete four cards.

Then I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color each of the cards. I used: CG2, CG4, CG6, CR2, CT1, CT4, DG2, DG3, EB1, EB2, EB6, GB8, GB10, HB2, HB3, LV3, IG1, IG2, IG4, OR2, PP3, TB1, TB2, TB4.

The alcohol markers will bleed through the card stock, so to hide that on the inside of the flaps I added pattern paper. Once the pattern paper was adhered, I turned the card over and placed the matching die in the hole already cut and ran it through the die cutting machine again.

Last I used the Butterfly Clasp die and cut two from purple and two from pink card stock. I used them to wrap around each of the cards. 

Happy Stamping!!

  2. These cards are so cool! I love how they flap open to reveal the next part of the scene. Great idea putting patterned paper behind to you can use alcohol markers.
