Portrait Gate Folds
I've got some portrait gate-fold cards for you today. I used the Berries & Blossems DSP that will be retiring the end of this month. For the focal point, I stamped my sentiment directly on the DSP, punched it out with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch and mounted it on a 2 1/2" Early Expresso circle. Using the Bleeding Image technique, I cut out the remainder of the flower and added it to the circle with a small amount of Tombow Adhesive. The Jumbo Pearl in the centre of the flower really helps to make this card pop.
Here's the inside of the card:
Here's another, using a different piece of DSP from the same package. This paper was so beautiful, I didn't want to cover it up so instead, I added assorted pearls to some of the flowers. To complete this card , I added a small sentiment "thinking of you" stamped in Early Expresso and sponged the edges of the shortened Word Window with Calypso Coral.
When I craft, I sometimes surprize myself–the more I create, the more ideas I get. I'm very pleased with these cards and hope you've been inspired today.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
