2014-02-27…Vertical Platform gate fold


I tried a card with a different fold. Basically it is a gate fold done vertically. The top and bottom flaps have small sections cut away so you can see the inside of the card edges. The top flap has been embossed using a Cuttlebug folder. I brushed the raised embossing with an ink pad and then dusted with pink Perfect Pearls.

I added a sentiment to the front with punches. The verse is by Stampin’ Up from the set Teeny Tiny Wishes. The tiny brads are actually metallic stickers, which is helpful as the prongs would have stuck out somewhere had there been any. The scrolled edge under the sentiment is a die cut by Tim Holtz. In addition I also used by Scor-Buddy and added some score lines.

Here I have unwound the tie closure and fully opened it. I die cut a solid color piece of matching card stock and used it for a sentiment.

Here is a good look at the inside sentiment. The verse is by Rubbernecker and the flower image by Penny Black.

And one last look at the card before you go on about your day

I made this card with a friend and it took forever…but certainly good crafty fun for a really cold blustery afternoon.
