Tri-Fold Christmas Card

J

Jennifer Kotas

You will need two pieces of Neenah Classic Crest cardstock cut to 4 ¼” x 5 1/2”. Place one in Misti Stamping Tool. Stamp the background stripe from the Stripes and Dots stamp set with Gina K. Designs Amalgam ink in Warm Glow.

The great thing about using this ink is that it’s so light and it won’t show through any stamping or coloring. It’s also alcohol marker safe!

Place the scene stamp from the Snow Happy stamp set on the cardstock centered at the top portion of the panel. Now, place the frame stamp from This is Us stamp set on top of the first.

Pick up frame with the Misti door. Remove the scene stamp. Stamp the frame with Gina K. Amalgam ink in Obsidian.

Place the Christmas tree from the Christmas Tree Cat, keeping in mind the portion overhanging the window will get cut off. Stamp the tree in the Obsidian Amalgam Ink. Remove stamp but leave panel in Misti.

Place the deer stamp on the panel making sure the deer and bunny faces are visible in the frame. Pick up stamp with Misti door and replace stamped panel with unstamped one. Stamp with Amalgam Ink in Obsidian.

Color images with Copic Markers. I used:

E42, E44, E47, E49, E53, E55, E57, E59, YG03, YG17, YG67, R01, R24, R27, R39, BG0000, BG01, BG05, CG01, CG03, CG05, W01, W03, W05, W07

Stamp the sentiments with Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink. Cut the opening for the window.

Use a piece of 11” x 14” Bristol Smooth Cardstock for the tri-fold card. Cut it to 5 1/2 x 12 3/4”. Score at 4 1/4” from each end. My trimmer isn’t big enough so I scored it first, folded it, then cut it to 5 1/2”.

Line up the front panel with the front of the card base. Trace the opening with a pencil. Die cut or fussy cut the opening of the card base.

On the inside part of the card base, stamp the sentiment in Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink. Stamp the little mouse from the Christmas Tree Cat set on top of the sentiment in Hero Arts Soft Granite Ink. Adhere the two stamped panels on the card.

I trimmed the stamped panels to 4” x 5 1/4” but it’s not really necessary. Add shimmer pen and white gel pen.
