Another Gatefold Card

Hi Folks,

Hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather, its a bit warm for me, but I am not complaining. I have been working today on another gatefold card.

I have used white card stock for the gatefold card, lilac card stock, backing paper, flowers, brads, sentiments, 1 organza ribbon, cuttlebug, spellbinders tag shape, edge puncher, x cut corner punch and one of those gorgeous girls images called up, up and away.

1) Using two pieces of cardstock cut down to 29.7cm by 17cm. Score at 17cm at one end of each piece.
2) Apply adhesive to the back of one square section of one piece and adhere to the front of the other piece of cardstock; now you have a basic shape gatefold card.
3) Using a roll of tape, shape the top and bottom corner of the flaps of the gatefold card. Mark carefully and lightly with a pencil then cut these sections away.
4) Cover the card with papers. Stamp the image onto cardstock of your choice using ink and colour. Trim, ink the edges and mat onto another piece of cardstock, which has ribbon wrapped around. Adhere topper to card.
5) Cut out shape for sentiments tags, add sentiments, colour edges, layer then punch a hole through the pieces as well as front of card and add with a brad.
6) Flowers and brads for final touches if so wish.

I hope you like this one and until next time, do take care and happy crafting, lol
