Just Believe Gate Fold Card

 This is one of the cards that we made today at the Stamp-A-Stack at Beaumont Hills. We also made the 2 previous cards I shared using the Celebrations designer Series Paper and punches. The ladies loved the Owl Punch, even though it was a bit fiddly.
Now onto today’s card.
Recipe:
Card stock – Elegant Eggplant (8″ x 4.25″) and (3″ x 2.5″); Whisper White (2.5″ x 2.25″) and (3.5″ x 4″) for the insert
Ribbon – Elegant Eggplant grosgrain
Textured Impressions Folder – Finial Press
Versamark ink pad
Brayer
Classic Stampin’ Ink – Elegant Eggplant
Sponge Dauber
Stamp set – Just Believe

Inside of card

Method:
Lie the card stock landscape and crease at approximately 2.25″ and 4″ or crease at the 2.25″ and fold the other side over to meet the middle.
Place the widest piece of the front into the Finial press folder and run it through the Big Shot
Now using the brayer, ink it up on the Versamark and gently roll over the embossed image. This will make the embossing ‘pop’ or stand out.
Now, using your Whisper White 3.5″ x 4″ piece (the 4″ side will go across/landscape position in your card), stamp your sentiment. I chose “just for you” from the Just Believe stamp set and I used a sponge dauber to lightly ink around all 4 sides of the insert card. Adhere to the centre of your open card.
With your smaller piece of Whisper White, stamp the image – try stamping so the stems start at the edge of the white – I didn’t but was able to hide it by placing the ribbon across :). Again use the sponge dauber to lightly ink around the white card with the Elegant Eggplant ink. Adhere this white piece to the small piece of Elegant Eggplant and tie the ribbon around both pieces of card.  Now this piece needs to go across the opening of the card. Place adhesive to one side only and stick in place. Your card is finished.
Thank you for stopping by. I will be uploading the 4th card from the Stamp-A-Stack tomorrow, so pop back then to see what we made.

Remember, your creativeness is only limited by your imagination. Keep smiling and until next we share …
