Gated Roses

For the last evening of the classes I taught through the school board, I decided to teach some different folds as well as two-step stampin.

For this card, we focused on the Gate Fold. I used some retired patterned vellum for the outside flaps. I stamped the rose in Bordering Blue ink and two step stamped it in Night of Navy ink. I added some smaller flowers and leaves around the main image. I layered this on a bit of Old Olive cardstock to tie in the colour of the leaves. Applying adhesive to only one half of the main image, I attached it to the left front flap of my card.

Inside, I added a layer of white cardstock and stamped another rose. To hold the card shut, I tied a bit of Old Olive grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Okay, so I was in love with the purple roses, but they've got nothing on these blue ones!!! What a beautiful colour choice! And I love that cute polka-dotted vellum - I'll definitely be giving that a try. Thanks for another gorgeous card with lots of inspiration!
