I have a lovely Gate Fold card to share today using the beautiful Prized Peony stamp set and the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder.
Start with a Purple Posy cs card base. Cut your Whisper White cs inside panel and then just set it inside your card base for ease of checking if your panels meet.
Before using your Bone Folder to crease the two front panels forming the Gate Fold – be sure your score is correct and the two panels meet. I set the inside panel inside to help me visualize – if I can see the Whisper White I know I need to adjust my folds.
Then dry emboss your front panels using the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder – making sure that each side panel is in the embossing folder the same side up with the Stampin’ Up! logo on top.
Cut your Blushing Bride cs panel, Peony Garden DSP panel, and Whisper White cs panel. Stamp the floral image from the Prized Peony stamp set in Basic Gray ink on the bottom left side of the Whisper White cs panel ( be sure to use scrap paper as you will be stamping only a portion of the image on the panel). Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Basic Gray ink on the top right of the Whisper White cs panel. Color the flower with the Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends combo pack and then add Wink of Stella for sparkle.
Cut two pieces of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Bidding ribbon. Glue the Peony Garden DSP to the Blushing Bride cs panel. Add Stampin’ Seal to the back half of the Blushing Bride cs panel (only half as the other half will hang over in front of the right side panel. Attach the longer piece of ribbon to the center of back of the Blushing Bride cs panel in the Stampin’ Seal and then add more adhesive to the ribbon. Then add the panel & ribbon to the card front. Wrap the attached ribbon around the card so it shows from under the right side of the card. Then add Stampin’ Seal to the center of the top DSP panel to adhere the second ribbon using the already attached ribbon as a guide. Then add glue or Stampin’ Seal to the back of the stamped Whisper White cs panel and layer over the ribbon on the top DSP panel so that the two ribbons can be tied to close the card. Add Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.
Stamp the sentiment from Fancy Phrases stamp set in Basic Gray on the Whisper White cs inside panel. Stamp the floral image from the Prized Peony stamp set in Basic Gray ink on the bottom left side of the inside Whisper White cs panel.
Color the flower with the Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends combo pack and then add Wink of Stella for sparkle. Then glue the stamped inside panel to the inside of the card base.
I stamped the sentiment on the back of the card in Basic Gray ink.
I also added a strip of Peony Garden DSP to the back of the card to pull the theme through.
