I’ve lost count of the number of wedding anniversary cards I’ve made in the last two months – but it’s been a few.
This one is fancy fold using the Gate Fold technique.
I started with a normal card base but rather than score it in the center I scored two side panels which then fold back onto the ‘base’. One side was slightly wider than the other so that it overlaped and was held shut by the heart die from Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits set. The Heart was cut out of Real Red Glimmer Paper and adhered to one side of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The flowers and the sentiment were stamped with Real Red then die cut with the Bloomin’ Hearts and Number of Years dies.
I decided to adhere the sentiment directly to the card front rather than use dimensionals. The DSP (Something Borrowed) is retired but went so well with the Bloomin’ Hearts and I didn’t have my new papers when I made this.
And here’s the inside to show how it opens up.
While I was making this card I needed a Wedding Card for my cousins son who got married earlier this month so as I had the papers and stamp set already out here is what I created.
The ‘heart’ is stamped in Sahara Sand then clear embossed. This time I used the solid flowers stamped with Real Red and cut out with the Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlits. The sentiment is from Floral Phrases.
Well that’s it for February posts – tomorrow we’re in March!
