I have not made a Gate Fold card in a very long time.  And didn’t really intend to do that today, but sometimes cards have a mind of their own and that is what I ended with.  Since I love the Prized Peony stamps, that was not a bad thing at all.



Here is the opening.


I stamped the peony in Misty Moonlight Ink and colored it with Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends.  I wanted a lighter blue for the petals.  The leaves are colored with Just Jade Stampin’ Blends.  These two colors work so well together.  My color choices came from the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper.  I added a couple of the Elegant Faceted Gems for some bling!

For the inside, I used the Misty Moonlight Ink again for the smaller peony.  However , I “stamped off” before stamping the Whisper White card stock.  The sentiment is also in Misty Moonlight, but full strength.


  • Base card is Just Jade and cut to 8 1/2 X 5 1/2
  • Score at 2 1/8 from each end on the long side.
  • DSP is cut to 2 X 5 3/8 (2 pieces)
  • Front layer of Misty Moonlight is 3 7/8 X 3 1/4
  • Front layer of Whisper White is 3 3/4 X 3 1/8
