Scrappy Tri-fold Card

Good Morning Everyone! I'm sorry I haven't posted on this blog site for the past few days! I've been working on rubber stamped cards for the past few days because I've been practicing coloring with my Copic Markers.

The flower on this card is not rubber stamped. I actually drew it with my Copic Multiliner and colored it with the Copic Markers. I decided to post it on this blog site because technically, the image is not a rubber stamped image.

I'm still a bit "Scrappy Card" challenged. I still need a little practice with layouts. I don't know why it is harder for me to use scrapbook embellishments. I'm just so accustomed to rubber stamping my images.

This card is a tri-fold card. Doesn't it look sort of like an envelope? For the template I used a card kit that already came with a tri-fold card base and I just traced it. I can create a short tutorial on this tri-fold but honestly, you can just look at and create it on your own but if you want instructions, I'll create a tutorial anyway.

I created the dots around the flap using a Sakura Black Gel pen and shaded the sentiment sticker with SU True Thyme ink.

Card Recipe:

Paper: DCWV Luxury Designer Paper
Ink: Copic Multiliner and Markers, SU True Thyme
Materials: Making Memories Metal shapes, Organdy Ribbon, Making Memories "Definition" stickers, Ki Memories stickers, Sakura Gel Pen
