Midnight Silver- Two Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers!

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. 

Another front view showing ornament & sentiment
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 :-)

Stamp Sets: Ornament Keepsakes, More Merry Messages, First Christmas (inside)

Ink: Midnight Muse

Paper: Whisper White, Midnight Muse, Silver Metallic

A simple message inside 
Accessories:  Big Shot™, Vintage Wallpaper Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Holiday Ornaments Framelits™ Die, 5/8” Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Rhinestones

Thanks again for stopping by and if you have a chance, stop by tomorrow eve. to see the "hybrid" Christmas :-)).  I hope all of you have a marvelous Monday and God Bless!

Simply stunning! I love this fold and you did those colors perfectly. I have to get me some silver paper because that embossing is delish. Thanks for playing with Hand Stamped Sentiments and the Dynamic Duos this week!

Julie, that is a splendid card! I love the silver embossed paper, and that the inside is a card within a card. Your double bow is so perfect! I have so much trouble with them :) Thanks for joining us at HSS! Erika
