I hope everyone has had a great weekend. It’s been a busy one for me, as usual. With 4 grown children, 9 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren, there’s never a dull moment here! I usually have some, if not all of them here every weekend. I’m not complaining in any way…I love having them all together with me! We always have so much fun.
I made this gatefold card a few days ago, but haven’t shared it yet. Gatefold cards are so easy to make and really make an impact on the recipient.
Cut Pumpkin Pie Cardstock to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 2-1/8″ on each end to make the gatefold card base.
Cut another piece of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock with the next to the largest die in the Stitched Nested Labels Dies Set.
Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper in half long-ways so that it each piece fits on the front flaps of the card base.
Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the next smallest die than used for the Pumpkin Pie Cardstock. (This is where the greeting is stamped.)
Cut another piece of Whisper White Cardstock at 2″ x 4″ for the pumpkins.
Cut 2 of the 3-leaf images from the Gathered Leaves Dies Set out of Cinnamon Cider Cardstock.
Cut another of the 3-leaf images out of Rainbow Glimmer Paper.
Adhere the 2 plaid panels to the front flaps of the card base.
Stamp the greeting in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the top of the Whisper White die-cut label.
Adhere this piece onto the Pumpkin Pie label.
Adhere this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Place the 3 die-cut leaf images below the greeting on the white label with the Rainbow Glimmer one in the middle.
Stamp the 2 pumpkin images from the Gather Together Stamp Set in Black Momento Ink and color them with Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Blends.
Cut them out with the matching dies from the Gathered Leaves Dies Set and adhere them toward the bottom of the leaves, leaving enough room for the Bumblebee Ribbon bow.
Tie a bow out of the Bumblebee Ribbon and place it at the bottom-left of the Whisper White label below the pumpkins.
Add 3 of the Champagne Rhinestone Embellishments above the leaves.
Stamp the bottom-left corner of a piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the pumpkin image in Pumpkin Pie Ink and adhere to the inside of the card for your message.
