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!
