The card I have to share today is my first attempt at this type card.  I am calling it a fence card because that is what it looks like.  It could be a gate, but there are so many versions of gate fold cards that it might be confusing.  This one actually looks like a fence, or a gate,   A friend gave me a card with this design so of course I had to give it a try.


Stampin' Up!, Gorgeously Made Dies, Sentimental Part, Wonderful thoughts, masterfully made, jackie beers



The floral dies are , in my opinion, the best part of this card.  I tried to make it a little rustic or masculine as it was a graduation card for a neighbor.  And it is for a guy, so no flowers climbing the fence!  The two floral images are from the Gorgeously Made Dies.  It also includes the sentiment shape, as well as a few more pieces.  I really love this Die set, and the entire Suite of products.

The two floral images are cut from Pretty Peacock card stock and Lost Lagoon card stock.  These two colors pair beautifully!  And they work well with the fence color of Pecan Pie card stock.


The sentiment layer is cut from the Gorgeously Made Dies as mentioned above.  I love the ragged edges, which again work great with the fence.  It is stamped using Pretty Peacock.  The sentiment is from the Sentimental Park stamp set.


To make the fence I copied the card I was given.  It begins with a piece of Pecan Pie card stock that is 5 X 5 1/2 and scored at 3/4″ on the 5 1/2 side.  Just the 3/4″ folds to the front.  Next I cut 4 strips that measure 3/4 X 5 1/2 and 6 strips that measure 3/4 X 4 1/4.  They are layered as you see.  The 6 strips are the horizontal ones with three on the front and the other three on the inside.

There is an extra “card” on the inside of the card for writing so the white does not show through the fence pieces.  Here is an inside view.

I could not lift the flap to show more because I was on autopilot and went ahead and wrote my note! DUH!!!.  But you can see the flap.  It is made with a piece of Pecan Pie that is 3 1/2 X 5 1/4.  Score on the 3 1/2 at 1/2″.  Miter cut the ends of the 1/2″ score and fold under.  Attach a piece of Basic White that is 3 1/4 X 4 5/8 to that flap to hide it.  Next secure the little “card” to the inside of the fence card.  The DSP piece is 3 X 4 1/4.


Completing the card was pretty simple since it was for a male recipient.  But it still needed some bling and “something”!  By adding a bit of Linen Thread looped around the flora and beneath the sentiment I took care of the something.  To add a little touch of bling was accomplished by placing a few of the Brushed Metallic Dots.  These are the ones that have a reddish shade to them. It worked great with the color of the Pecan Pie.
