Hi everyone! I’m sneaking in a Fall card today! Last Friday our area stamp club had a card party and this is the card I had the gals make. I have the instructions all typed up if you want to email me, I can email them to you. It was a super fun day…there were 12 of us. I still need to finish a couple of the cards!
This really isn’t complicated to make at all, you just have to remember to put the glue in the right places! Ask me how I know! lol
The NEW Memory Box Grand Maple Frame die is gorgeous! I love how it made up in this Circle Gatefold Type card…kind of interactive…
I die cut the center leaf/circle die in 110# Neenah Solar White cardstock and blended on 3 Distress Oxide ink pad colors, Forest Moss, Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey. I tried using watercolor paper for this but the spatters seemed to spread too much on it so I went back to regular cardstock. The spatters are a drop of Gathered Twigs regular Distress ink mixed with a few drops of water and spattered on with a paintbrush.
Adhere the leaf/circle to a matching size Circle Basics die cut from coordinating green cardstock.
The card base is a 4 ¼ in. x 8 ½ in., scored at 2 ⅛ in. in from the length ends. Fold on the scores and crease well.
Cut two of the Frame die and sandwich them in the left ‘gate’ of the card with liquid glue.
Adhere the finished leaf/circle to the right ‘gate’ of the card.
On the inside I stamped two sentiment stamps from the poppystamps Autumn Fairies stamp set using Ranger Archival Black ink and the MISTI stamping tool.
This card brought back memories. Remember years ago when Magenta came out with all the circle and square frame stamps? We were head over heels for them! There were several different folds we did with those stamps and this fold was one. Such a fun presentation!
