Bonus Prize Sponsors

Since it's Monday, we have a fun project from our design team member, Carol Hintermeier!


Happy Monday Ai Fans!!

Today I'm sharing a card using the beautiful Gazebo TryFold set.  The images in this set are so pretty and just as timeless as when the set was first released!


This is so easy to create!  All the directions you need are on the back of the packaging.  The images were stamped onto Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink since I was planning on using my Zig watercolor markers. (If you aren't watercoloring, the pre-folded cards from the TryFold Cardstock & Envelope pack make this even easier!)  I've listed all my Zig colors below.  Since there aren't a lot of instructions for me to give you, I have LOTS of photos!! 

I decided to use the beautiful Butterfly Clasp die on this to hold it closed for mailing. 



This is the view when the left panel is opened.



The right side is open, revealing the final image and sweet sentiment.



Here's a final look at the card after removing it from the envelope.


I hope this has inspired you to give the TryFold cards a try!  There are many Tryfolds and mini TryFolds for every occasion.  Thank you for stopping by!  Have a fun, crafty week!



Watercolor markers:
Zigs: Pale Green, Light Green, May Green, Pink, Scarlet, Yellow,
Bright Yellow, Shadow Mauve, Violet, Pale Violet, Lilac, Fog Gray,
Gray, Light Gray, Mid Brown, Blender
 Tombow #565 & #977; Marvy Olive Green



Thanks for stopping by the hop! Make sure to follow our blog by clicking one of the blog readers in our right column and comment below to be entered to win a $25 gift certificate!

I’m so in love with your stamps. I originally met you at the Scrapbook Expo 4yrs ago. The at Scottsdale Bible Art Journaling, and I’ve been taking AI classes at The Paper Collage in Arizona for the last 6 months. Thanks for all you do. Can’t wait to get the new desert stamp set. Haven’t seen it but have heard about it!
