SUO119 Trust God- A Fun Fold with A Color Challenge :-)

Hi Stampers!   

It’s time for the new SUO119 “Fun Folds” Challenge and I decided to use the Gate Fold technique for my “fun fold” and incorporated the JustUs Girls JUGS285 Color Challenge. 

I hope you will find the time to check the both challenge sites and create your own Stampin’ Up! “Fun Fold” project!!

To create this card:
Create the card base from Basic Black cardstock- I used the Splitcoaststampers Gate Fold Card tutorial located here for my base.
Layer the pieces of Back to Black Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the front two panels and cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to fit the inside main panel.
Ink the flower and leaf image from Choose Happiness with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp repeatedly onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock as well as onto the Whisper White interior card panel (mask the flowers for the panel as you stamp).   
Ink the bird image with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Acetate, turn the Acetate over so that the wet ink is on the bottom and press onto the Whisper White cardstock (for a “mirror” image).  Use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to darken the bird image.
Color the flowers using the Calypso Coral Light and

Medium Blendabilities™ markers and use the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write marker to add shadows to the leaves.  I added additional Basic Black to the stamped areas to darken, but this step may not be needed (I think I need to re-ink my Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink pad- note to self :-))    Add a few highlights to the center with the White Gel Pen.
Carefully cut out (“fussy-cut”) three of the flowers and leaf stems along with the bird image.
Stamp the sentiment from Trust God and the border from Choose Happiness below the sentiment with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Chalk Talk Framelits™ to cut out the sentiment (cut another Chalk Talk Framelit™ the same size from Basic Black cardstock as well). 
Cut the Basic Black frame in half and adhere behind the sentiment.

Mount the sentiment to the left “gate” panel, add the flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals®, positioning the lower right hand flower to be used as the closure for the card.  Adhere the leaf stems behind the flowers and add the bird image to the lower left of the sentiment.
Stamp the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge and add a bit of “splatter” to the interior panel, mount the panel to the interior to finish off the card.
