Happy Friday everyone! I’ve got a really fun, adorable card to share with you today. Sometimes the simplest change, like a fold, can take a card from simple to the next level. Today I’ve made a gate-fold card to share with you.
I started by stamping and coloring the adorable Tree-mendous Christmas images and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out and set them aside. Next, I created my gate-fold card by cut some green panels to decorate the front. I used some white pigment ink with the first layer of the slimline snowfall stencil, then I went over the second layer with white glitter glitz gel for a little texture. Once those were dry I adhered them to my card front.
Next, I took the slimline stitched strips and cut one from red cardstock a couple of times. I wrapped it around the card front and glued my images to it creating a sort of belly band to keep the card shut. I cut a skinnier strip and stamped the sentiment from Tree-mendous Christmas on it and adhered it down on the top strip.
I did add a few finishing touches like glossy accents to things like noses and antlers, berries and the star on top and also black glaze pen to the critter’s eyes. These little things add so much to the final card and I just love it!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
