Tuscan TF Set by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I am sharing a couple of cards made with one of the Art Impressions 2015 Try-fold sets: Tuscan TF Set (Sku #4580):
I remember the first time that I was making a Try-fold card, thinking how difficult it was going to be (NOT!) and now they're one of my favourite cards to make.  The cutting & stamping instructions are all included with the packaging.

 I often give wine as a gift, so was thrilled when Ai came out with this set!  The inside sentiment says "Wishing you everything under the Tuscan sun"
Try-fold stamps are so versatile, in that each of the three image stamps can be used individually.  I stamped and die cut just the villa image to make an all occasion card below:

  1. Karen you make the most beautiful tri-folds! Your colouring is amazing!

  2. I love this card. I have a question for you....how did you get the tan coordinating color on the inside when you open the sides? This really finishes this card.

    1. Hi Linda! I've always lined the inside of my try-folds with white cardstock, as the Copics bleed through a bit - Kate, our DT coordinator gave us the idea to use a patterned paper which makes a nice surprise when you open it up. This is simply a piece of paper glued onto the backside, before I trimmed the upper edge. Hope that helps!

  3. These are very pretty! Love your colours!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous, Karen!! Your coloring always blows me away and your choice of colors are amazing! Love it!!

  5. Karen, they are absolutely gorgeous! As usual your coloring is amazing!!!

  6. Gorgeous!! Your coloring is just fabulous!! Great tip with the inside to hide the bleed of ink!!
