Portrait Gate Folds

Posted by on May 15, 2012 in Other

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:

The base of the card is Calypso Coral (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").  The Whisper White CS is 8" x 5 1/4" and scored at 2" and 6" to make your gate fold.  Then you just decorate as desired. 

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!
