Today is our second blog hop, and we’re showing a Gatefold Card ! This one is really easy to make and it brings a bit of novelty for the person who receives the card.
If you’re coming from the talented Tanja, then you’re already hopping. If not, you can find all the blogs list at the end of this post. You don’t want to miss one as everybody’s got some fabulous cards to show you!
Here is what I came up with: a card for a baby!
I found the egg shape on Pinterest, printed it on a Soft Sky cardstock and fussy cut it. I sponged the edges with Soft Sky ink and also stamped little droplets from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set to make it look like a real egg. I stamped “Congratulations” in Marina Mist, from the set “Big News”. The bow comes from the Circle of Spring stamp set and it has been die cut with the Wonderful Wreath coordinating dies. The ferns are from Awesomely Artistic, they have been stamped in Pear Pizzaz, like the bow.
The gatefold card in itself is made with Crumb Cake cardstock and the lovely Love Blossoms DSP.
Inside comes a sentiment from Big News in Pear Pizzaz, on a white panel. The DSP is also Love Blossoms. The cutest little chickadee ever is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Promarkers. It sits on a fern nest 🙂
I think that’s a really cute way to celebrate a birth, or even create a card for Easter with the little chickadee… I absolutely love it 🙂
I made a “girly” version, I’ll show it later…
