Trifold Card + No Line Coloring_4

Hello crafters, it’s Nina-Marie here with you today with a brand new Studio Monday feature for you! This week we are showcasing Neat & Tangled products and I will show you how I used their Maple Leaves stamp and die set to create this beautiful fall-inspired card that has LOTS of techniques incorporated into it!

The first technique I’ll cover in today’s video is no line watercoloring. For this card I used Zig Clean Color markers to do my watercoloring, but keep in mind that you can use any watercoloring medium you have on hand to create this card. I love the look of no line coloring because it gives your card a hand-painted artwork feel. When doing no line coloring, you want to make sure you choose a light ink color; for today’s card I used Altenew’s Morning Frost dye ink, but you could use any type of light colored ink for this.

Another technique I’ll be sharing with you is creating a trifold; this could also be classified as a variation to a gatefold card because it’s kind of a blend between the two fold types. In the video, I will walk you through the steps I took to create my version. I love incorporating different card folds into my designs; I don’t always think of it as I am creating, but I love it when I do! :)

Finally, the last technique I will be sharing with you today is coloring Pretty Pink Posh clear droplet embellishments to match the colors on your card. This technique  is SO much fun… although I will warn you that it can be a bit messy sometimes! I used Copic markers to do this, but I’ll also share with you some tips on how you can color your droplets a bit faster.
