Floral Essence Gate Fold Card

By | July 11, 2019

Hi there

Yesterday I shared a card using products from the Perennial Essence Suite.  After making the first cut in the beautiful Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper I decided to do some more cutting with one of the other designs.  This is another card design by Patty Bennett with a few changes to fit our metric cardstock and also so that I could get two card bases from one sheet of A4 paper.

Aren’t the colours and designs in this paper pack gorgeous?  Have you noticed the strip of Petal Pink on the right that was used from yesterday’s card?  This measures 3cm x 14.4cm and has been dry embossed with my favourite embossing folder – Subtle.  In the original design by Patty she had used some Designer Series Paper – either way will work.  Once you untie the bow this is what awaits you inside:

The inside panels have been stamped with images from the Floral Essence stamp set – a mix of line art images and solid images.  The flowers have been stamped in Rich Razzleberry to coordinate with the card base.  The card base has been scored at 7.5cm and 17.5cm.  The white panels measure 7cm x 14.4cm and 9.5cm x 14.4cm.  The sentiment is from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set.

And here’s a shot of the outside flat so you can see how it looks.

I’m loving the 5/8″ Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon – my ribbon measures 45cm and is adhered on the back of the card and to the underside of the flap.  The Designer Series Paper measures 7cm x 14.4cm.  I altered the front flap to be just a 7cm square with the stamped image being a 6.5cm square.  The flap has been adhered with Mini Dimensionals.

And here’s a view of the card standing open – there’s plenty of room to write a lovely birthday message in this card.

For the center of the flower I used the new Perennial Essence Floral Center embellishment.  These are adhesive-backed fuzzy yellow centers – perfect for adding some height and a bit of texture to your card.

Until next time …
