Happy Heart Day Card
Ahhhh. It feels really good to get back into making cards. This is something I've been craving to do, and I finally had a chance to make one up last night.
This is my first gate fold card. The size is A2, so to make it I cut a sheet of card stock 8.5"x 5.5", and scored it at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8". The panels for the front are 1 7/8"x5.25".
The paper is from the Crate Paper Paper Heart collection, along with Stampin' Up!'s Pool Party card stock. I really love this text pattern for the front of the card:
I used a stamp from the Stampin' Up! Happy Heart Day stamp set, and colored it with my Copic markers. Then I die cut this out using one of the Stampin' Up! Labels Collection framelit dies.
I sponged the edges of everything in dark brown, just to define them. A strip of pink patterned paper across the middle and some foam pop dots finished off the card.
Here's what the card looks like when it's closed:
I love the look of gate fold cards. Now that I've tried one on my own, I will definitely be making more!
