I cut out a piece of 12.75 x 5.5 paper for this tri-fold card, so it would fold down to a typical A2 card, but I’ll hold off on scoring it until the very end. Since the card space was so large, I wanted to be able to easily color up the background using distress inks. This also meant that I had to create masks for every image on the card. Thankfully, most of these images were easy to cut. For the ones where I needed multiple, I just stamped and cut through a few post its, creating multiple masks at one time.
I used distress inks for the background, sky, and street. The rest, I ended up coloring using my Spectrum Noir markers. Once everything was colored in and finished, I’ll score it at 4.25 at each end and fold it in an accordian style. I could have easily stamped, colored, and die-cut these images separately to adhere onto my background but since it’s already a tri-fold card, I didn’t want to add additional bulk.
Thanks for stopping by and I’ll be back next week to share another card with you.
