A Beautiful Journey

February 11, 2021

Yesterday on my Facebook Live, I shared with you a gatefold card with a twist. I followed the instructions shared by Lisa Curcio on her blog to create the cards. Today I have another version for you. I cut my card base from Early Espresso card. I attached a piece of World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper to Gold Foil card and attached the panels to the front flaps. I cut the sliding card front from Early Espresso card and attached a layer of Gold Foil.

I embossed Basic White card using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder and attached it to the Gold Foil card. I stamped the globe base and the globe from the Beautiful World stamp set onto Basic White card using Early Espresso ink. I used the co-ordinating World Map Dies to cut out the images. I attached the images to the embossed Whisper White card using dimensionals underneath the globe.

I stamped “Life’s a beautiful journey” from the Beautiful World stamp set onto Basic White card using Early Espresso ink. I used my Paper Snips to cut around the greeting and attached it over the globe base. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Beautiful World stamp set onto Basic White card using Early Espresso ink. I stamped the globe image from the same stamp set next to the greeting using Early Espresso ink.

I have never made a lot of Gatefold cards as I found it difficult to create the slide off band with more than a greeting. However with Lisa’s instructions of adding the sliding panel I feel you have a better opportunity to add a proper card front.

I would love to know what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
