I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
I hope you had a
wonderful weekend-I know I enjoyed the extra time off from my accounting job :-) !! I spent most of
yesterday trying to catch up on one of the designs for my Christmas cards (will post this card tomorrow) but today, decided to create a fancy fold card for this week’s Hand StampedSentiments HSSTC145 Challenge along with the colors from this week’s DynamicDuos#30 Challenge (if you have not
visited their sites yet, the samples at both are gorgeous)!
This card is a
Clean and Simple (CAS) Gatefold Card (see the Splitcoaststampers’ Tutorial here- of course, I used my Simply Scored™ Tool).
Create the base for the Gate Fold card using Whisper White cardstock- use a scoring tool or bone folder.
Front view partially open
With the Big Shot™
and the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, emboss a
piece of Silver Metallic cardstock.
Adhere the embossed panels to the two front sides of the “gate” on the card base.
Stamp the sentiment
and ornament using Midnight Muse Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Cut the ornament using the Big Shot™ with the
Holiday Ornaments Framelits™ Die and create a basic panel
with the sentiment (mounted onto Midnight Muse cardstock).
Adhere the ornament with Stampin’ Dimensionals
onto the panel and mount the panel onto the left hand “gate” fold only.

Attach the 5/8” Whisper
White Organza Ribbon bow and Rhinestones to finish off the outside of the card. I decorated the inside with a few stamps
and layers - remember to leave room for personalizing :-)
