I decided to make a punny A2 trifold card for this week's project at Maymay Made It, I used the Lemonade Stamp by Pink and Main along with Beacon Stamp Set by Maymay Made It.
I started off by cutting 3 panels of Canson XL paper using the second largest die from the Infinity Rectangle Die set by Hero Arts since I wanted a white border around the panels. Then, I stamped the images and sentiments on two of the panels. I then started working on the background of the panels. For the first two panels, I masked the images while I worked on the background so as to prevent them from getting coloured. I wanted to colour the word “lemons” in the first panel with a colour different from the background, and so, I applied masking fluid on it. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Permission and Barn Door Distress Oxide Inks to create a gradient effect and to draw attention to the focal image on the first panel. To create the background for the second panel, I used Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Inks. Once these panels were dry, I unmasked the images and coloured them using my zig clean markers. I also rubbed off the masking fluid from the word “Lemons” and coloured it too with Zig markers.
For the third panel, I first stamped the banner in 4 different colours– Tide Pool and Butter Bar by Hero Arts and Ruby Red and Turquoise by Altenew. To create the clouds, I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink along with the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil by My Favorite Things. Next, I stamped the jug and glasses with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and coloured them using Zig Markers. To create the lemonade stand, I cut a piece of 1 1/2 * 1/2 inches cardstock and coloured it with Tea Dye Distress Oxide Ink. To create the faux wooden panel, I used my Score Board to score at every 1/4 inch, and then, I used my Vintage Photo Distress Ink pad and dragged it over the panel. I also cut 2 thin strips of paper to create the frame and coloured these using Tea Dye Distress Oxide Ink. I then used Vintage Photo Distress ink pad to add texture to the frame.
After this, I stuck the wooden panel and the frame on the third background panel that I created earlier and then stuck the other images on it.
To create a trifold card base, I stuck two A2 side folding cardstocks together. As the last step, I stuck the background panels on the cardstock.
