Gatefold ‘Sale-a-bration’ Card

It’s that time of year when Stampin’ Up has a party and everyone can earn FREE gifts!!!  These range from stamp sets, embellishments, embossing folder and  punches…… if you haven’t yet seen the brochure – contact me now for your free copy 🙂

I have used some of the free products in the  gatefold card on the right of this picture.  The designer series paper is called Sweet Sorbet (133521) the stamp set is Petal Parade (133599) and the cute little bow is from the Sweet Sorbet accessory pack (133522)

The DSP is cut at 1 7/8 x 5 1/4 (yes, I know that is a fiddly measurement but it gives you a really pretty effect !!!)   The layers are 3 x 3 1/2 Crisp Cantaloupe and 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 Whisper White, with a little strip of Pool Party 2 3/4 x 1 cut  using the new fringing scissors.  The inks were Pool Party and Crisp cantaloupe.

fringe scissorsSnail adhesive was used to assemble the layers and 3 stampin  dimensionals to attach the center to card…. be sure to just attach it to one side otherwise the card will not open!!! (embarrassing!)  And finally a glue dot to attach the little bow made from the ribbon in the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack.

I made two versions of the card, one for a birthday and one as a get well card, this version  used Soft Sky card stock with Soft Sky and Cake Crumb inks and a bow using the silver bakers twine.
