Triple Treat Gatefold Card- Three Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers!  

It has been an extremely busy week, but finally I had a chance to spend a few minutes in my craft room stamping!  

 I decided to make a CAS card for three of my  favorite weekly challenges- The Paper Players PP61 Sketch Challenge, the Hand StampedSentiments HSSMC82 Monochromatic Challenge and the Friday Mashup FM22 GatefoldChallenge.

If you have a chance, stop by their sites and you find wonderful samples and ideas galore!

To create this card:

Using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, score a piece of 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” Whisper White cardstock at 2 1/8” and 6 3/8” to create the folds needed for the Gatefold Technique.  

With the Embossing Buddy®, de-static a piece of Whisper White and stamp the Triple Treat Flower with Versamark ink.  Apply Black Stampin’ Emboss® Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.  

Stamp a second flower with Basic Gray Classic Ink, punch the center section of both flowers out with the 5-Petal Punch, the centers with the ½” Circle Punch and the outside edge with the Fancy Flower Punch.

Adhere the Designer Paper (1 7/8” x 5 ¼”) to the front panels and a piece 4" x 5 1/4" inside of the card.  Adhere the 5/8” Black Satin Ribbon over the front edges on both sides of the Gatefold.  

Mount the punched out flower image onto Whisper White cardstock (punched with the 2 ½” Circle Punch) and mount the entire focal image onto a 3” Circle of Basic Black cardstock.  Adhere the left side of the focal image onto the left panel of the card and attach the bow to the top of the circle. 

Use a Filigree Designer Brad on the right panel to finish off the card (this will keep the "gate" closed by tucking the circle behind the brad).

Stamp Sets:  Triple Treat Flower
 Ink: Versamark®, Basic Gray
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Night and Day DSP (retired)
Accessories:  Big Shot™, 3” Originals Circle Die, Embossing Buddy®, Black Stampin’ Emboss® Powder, Heat Tool, Punches- ½” Circle, 5-Petal, Fancy Flower, 2 ½” Circle, 5/16” Hand-Held, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Filigree Brad  

Thanks again for stopping by- have a great Labor Day weekend!
