Today’s card is a different layout for a Gatefold Card.  Turning the orientation really changed the look.   A layered sentiment joins the fold together.

Stamps and Dies

The Splendid Thoughts Bundle includes the Splendid Thoughts Stamp set and the Splendid Stems Dies.  The Dies are wonderful and I have used them more than the stamp set.  My favorite is the sentiment Die used here.  That taco shape with some added definition is great for a lot of sentiments in the catalog.

And the Splendid Stems Dies include a variety of flower and stems.  Two of the images above are stamped and then Die cut.  But the third Crushed Curry piece is simply Die cut.  This more open stem adds quite a lot of texture.

Last, but not least, is the Deckled Rectangles Dies.  The NIght of Navy layer is cut using one of those and the edge is very different from any other of the current Dies in the catalog.

Inside View


The inside sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp set.  There is an added touch of one stem of flowers.  On the front I stamped the same image on Sweet Sorbet cardstock and then die cut.  For the inside one, I stamped on the White and then colored with Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends.


Stampin’ Up!’s DSP is one of my most favorite things in the catalog.  This paper is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is FREE with a qualifying order.  It is the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper.  All of the colors in this sheet are wonderful.  And I probably used the majority of them in either cardstock or coloring.  The combination of the Night of Navy and Sweet Sorbet are perfect I believe.


The Sweet Sorbet card base is cut to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and scored at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8.  It may be a bit difficult to see in the photo, but there is a White layer under the DSP.  It is two pieces that are each cut 5 1/4 X 1 7/8.  And the DSP layers are two pieces cut at 5 1/8 X 1 3/4.

Inside is a regular size White layer cut to 5 1/4 X 4.  For the front, theNight of Navy Deckled layer is cut from a piece of scrap that is 2 1/2 X 4.  And the Crumb Cake layer is from a piece measuring 2 3/4 X  3 1/2.  The Sweet Sorbet image truly was a narrow scrap that was approximately 1 X 3.  And and even smaller scrap was used on the Crushed Curry piece.

The stems were adhered to the Night of Navy layer only at the bottom.  By leaving the upper parts free it gives a touch more dimension.  And the sentiment is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The whole sentiment / stems layer was centered on the right side of the card with only the upper half adhered to the top flap by using Stampin’ Dimensionals also.
