Today I’m sharing a double Z-fold card featuring the Gather Together bundle in the Holiday Catalog. This was another one of the cards we made at my stamping club earlier this month. I CASEd this idea from Susan LeVasseur, WOW NOLA Creations and also changed up some of the card dimensions.
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″. Score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″ and fold. For the smaller Z-fold base cut a piece of Mango Melody cardstock at 3″ x 9.” Score at 3″ and 6″ and fold.
Select one of the papers from the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. Cut one piece at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and two pieces at 2 1/2″ x 4″ and adhere them to the card base.
Cut three pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock at 2 3/4″. On the first piece stamp the speckles with Pretty Peacock ink around all four sides. Stamp the wheat sheaf with Crushed Curry Ink on the second piece. Stamp the greeting of your choice with Pretty Peacock ink. Adhere pieces to Mango Melody base. Adhere this base to the larger card base. For the front flap only apply glue on one half of the Mango Melody base in order for the card to open and close properly.
Stamp one leaf with Early Espresso ink on a piece of Early Espresso cardstock. Stamp another leaf with Crushed Curry ink on piece of Crushed Curry cardstock. Cut with coordinating die from the Gathered Leaves die set. Cut two Gold Foil leaves using the medium and large leaf embossing dies. Spray Early Espresso leaf with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint. To use this paint add 70% rubbing alcohol to a Stampin’ Spritzer, filling halfway. Add 3-5 drops of the Shimmer Paint and shake it up so that the paint mixes thoroughly with the alcohol. Sponge Celestial Copper Metallic Ink on tips of the Crushed Curry leaf, Arrange leaves and adhere to front of card.
Tie a bow with a thread of your choice. I used a gold thread that has been retired. Attach with a Mini Glue Dot to the base of the Early Espresso leaf.
I really enjoyed creating this card and hope you like it! Please feel free to leave me a comment.
Today I have a SIP card (Stamps, Ink, Paper), #stampsinkpaper, that features the Gather Together stamp set. I’ve been a long-time member of a local chapter of the American Business Women’s Association and recently hosted a mini-mixer at my home for a small group of members. In addition to the socializing and refreshments, I designed two cards for the women to make that will be donated to the Cards for Soldiers organization. One card is for the recipient to keep and the other is for them to send to a friend or loved one back home. Since not everyone knew how to stamp and there was a limited amount of time to do the projects I had to keep the cards easy to make. I think it turned out to be simple yet elegant. I also used this project at my stamping club last week. All of the club members are avid crafters and they loved making this card too!
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut piece of Cajun Craze cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half.
Cut piece of the woodgrain paper from the Come to Gather Designer Series Papers at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card base.
Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″. Using the leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set, stamp two leaves with Cajun Craze ink and then fill in the blank spots by stamping the leaves with Blackberry Bliss. Attach to a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock cut at 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″ and attach to card front
Stamp greeting with Blackberry Bliss ink on piece of Whisper White cardstock and use circle punch or circle die to cut out. Punch a larger circle with a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and adhere to the greeting. Attach to the card.
Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ for inside of card. Stamp leaf in left corner and stamp greeting of your choice or leave blank.
