Hello Friend Notecard by Carol Hintermeier

Hello Ai Friends!  I hope you are having a wonderful day!  I have a sweet notecard I made using the pretty Hello Friend Mini Tryfold set.  

When I use a stamp set that's been out a while and has been used so beautifully by others, I like to challenge myself to make it a bit differently.  I did that with this one by stamping each image on a separate piece of Bristol Smooth card stock and colored each one using various Zig Clean Color and Marvy LePlume II markers (listed below).  

Have you seen the new dies by Art Impressions?  They are fabulous!!  I used the new Circle Double Stitched dies to cut out each image.  For the front image I used the largest die. I used the second largest for the middle image and the next size down for the third image.

Before adhering the cut out images, I used a background stamp and stamped it on each panel of a Tryfold Card.  I cut the Tryfold Card down to be 4-½ inches tall.   Once you have your images positioned onto the card, you will need to take the dies that come with the Hello Friend set and place it onto the previous cutout and run it back through your die cutting machine.

I also used the Circle Stitched dies to create frames for the images.  I just temporarily taped two of the circle dies together and die cut them to make the frames.

This is what you see when the first panel is opened

And finally, your view when the card is totally open.  Here I used two of the sweet birds from the Watercolor Birds set and stamped in the same blue ink for a little extra touch.  

Here is a close up of all the beautiful detail in this set.  I used a Signo Uni-Ball white gel pen to add details to the purple flowers.

I hope this has inspired to to give the Mini Tryfolds a try!  We are so glad you stopped by today!  Thank you!  Happy crafting!
