Double Flap Gatefold Birthday Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be creating a “Double Flap Gatefold” card! When you open the card, one of the flaps will go to the left and the other goes to the right! It’s a unique variation on a gatefold card that is lots of fun!

For our focal image we will be using the Ai Practically Perfect Set (5280). These adorable ladies are really going all out for this birthday celebration with cake, gifts, party hats and lots of confetti! There are also three perfectly coordinated sentiments included in this set.

We will first die cut the scallop ovals out of some lavender cardstock and the plain ovals from some white 100lb cardstock. These dies are from the Ai Journal Oval Frames (5588) Set.

Let’s start by stamping these ladies onto the largest white oval and the sentiment onto the smaller white oval. Now we can do some coloring using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Peach Pink, Flesh Colour, Yellow, Pale Violet, Lilac, Pale Green, Lt Green, Lt Blue, Cobalt Blue, Haze Blue, Lt Gray, Beige, Gray.

Let’s assemble the ovals and add a strip of green plaid paper underneath the sentiment for a bit more interest. We will also add some pretty lavender gems to this strip of paper for some sparkle!

Now we can create the gatefold card base using the lavender cardstock and we will add some patterned paper panels from the Mini Birthday Paper Pack (5873) to the inside of the card and onto the flaps on the front of the card. I will show you exactly how to create this gatefold and give you all of the measurements in today’s video!

We will also add a scallop border to the left and right side of the inside of the card using the Ai Journal Template Set (5543). This will coordinate nicely with the scallop ovals on the front of the card.

Finally, we can glue the ovals to the two front flaps of the card. We will glue half of the oval with the ladies to the left panel and half of the oval with the sentiment to the right panel. This cute sentiment will say “A year older and still RIDICULOUSLY FABULOUS”!

This birthday card will bring a smile to anyone’s face, and it is so easy to create!

Hero Arts Interlocking Gatefold Card w/ Diamond Dies and Layering Stencils!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create an elegant Interlocking Gatefold card today using lots and lots of products from Hero Arts!

To get started, we can take the beautiful Hero Arts Color Layering Stencils – Tulip Bouquet Set. This set contains 4 layers of stencils so that we can easily do the coloring and shading with our blending brushes and ink pads!

Let’s grab a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock to do our blending. We will be using the Hero Arts Small Blending Brushes for this stenciling process and the ink colors today will be using the Hero Arts Core Inks in Green Apple, Fresh Lawn, Pine, Dandelion, Butter Bar and Papaya. These colors will blend together beautifully! We can also quickly spatter these flowers with these same inks!

Now we can begin creating the interlocking mechanism for the front of the card. To do this we will use the fantastic Hero Arts – Infinity Diamond Dies. We will create a frame with these dies by using the largest die and the next smaller die and cut these out 3 times. By gluing the 3 diamonds together we will have a nice solid frame for the interlocking feature! We can also cut the tulips from the smaller diamond die, and this will fit perfectly inside the frame!

Next, we can get started building the card base for our gatefold card and cutting the layers for the card. I’ll show you all of the measurements for cutting and scoring in today’s video!

Now that we have our layering papers cut, we can start the stenciling on these layers. We will be using the Hero Arts – Stencil Square – Stripe! This is a stencil that can be used in a variety of ways but today we will do some simple stenciling using the Dandelion ink and then add ink around the edges with the Papaya ink.

Let’s glue the layers to the inside of the card base and front panels.

Now for the fun part…. let’s add the tulips on the card by gluing only the right-hand side of the diamond and gluing it to the right panel on the card. Next, we can place glue on only the left-hand side of the diamond frame and glue it to the left panel of the card. Be sure to line this up really well with the tulips that you have already glued down.

We can now stamp a few sentiments by using the Hero Arts – Togetherness Flower Bouquet Stamp Set. This set has some absolutely beautiful sentiments and script for all of your cards! y and add an elegant touch to the card!

Spellbinders Autumn Leaf Border w/ Glimmer Hot Foiling

Hello and Welcome!

Today we are going to have some fun with the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System! We will be creating a gatefold birthday card with a pretty velvet belly band. And to add some additional interest, we will add a Tim Holtz metal “word band”.

I’ll show you how we will use the Metallic Gilding Polish to add color to the metal “word band”. Then we will highlight the lettering by using a Distress Crayon!

We will be using the Spellbinders Autumn Leaf Border Glimmer Plate! I’ll show you how quick and easy it is to apply this beautiful foiling to your projects! We will also use the Spellbinders Cannetille Rectangle Die to give this card a unique border and angled edge….which is so elegant!

After we have done the foiling, we will then apply some subtle color to the leaves using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pads in a variety of Fall colors. These work great on colored cardstock!

I know that a lot of us have a hard time creating masculine cards and sympathy cards…and this style would be great for either of those occasions!
