Poinsettia Petals Merry Christmas Gate Fold Card. Stampin for Christmas Monthly Blog Hop June 2021

  Good Afternoon Everyone,

Today I have a Christmans Project for you - you may say its too early but I don't think it is ever too early to make a start.  I'm taking part in the  Stampin For Christmas Monthly Blog Hop - which really helps me create something throughout the year, adding to the pile each month in anticipation of the big despatch in December.

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 7/8" x 5 3/8"

Cherry Cobbler Card Stock

Bumblebee Card Stock


Take the Shaded Spruce Card Stock and score on the long side at 2 3/4"  and 8 1/4".  Fold from the left to the centre and front the right to the centre - this will create the Gate part of the card, make sure that they line up in the centre and burnish well.. Add the larger piece of basic white to the inside.

On the two strip of basic white, stamp the holly leaf outline all over to create a background. Take your wink of stella and use it to 'colour' in the Holly. The wet liquid will 'pull' some of the ink from the outline and give you a very pale infil colour full of sparkle - takes a bit of time to cover them all, but I think it is worth it. Add these panels to the two front 'gate' pieces.

On the remaining piece of basic white, stamp the sentiment along the shorter side in Shaded Spruce ink. Once dry, layer this to the Cherry Cobbler card stock. Add dimensionals to the back to this piece, but only on the left hand half. Hold the card closed, then add this panel to the front, making sure it is centred and that the dimensionals only stick to the left hand side. If the go over onto the right panel, then you will stick your card shut.

Using the Poinsettia cut out some of the petal sections. These are great dies and you can cut out just the shape and/or add embossed details too. 

The outline cuts and the solid embossed, so you can sit them inside each other and do both processes at once...

Also cut out the pieces for the centre. Like below, the base piece is Bumblebee and the top piece is cherry cobbler.

Now layer all these pieces together to and add this to the card front above the sentiment 

I hope you have enjoyed today's card - please continue through the hop, visiting Annette next, I'm sure you will not be disappointed.
