Sympathy Card – Gate Fold Design

There is something special about the elegance of a gate fold card.  They are so simple to make but they look as if they took quite a long time to finish.  The colors on today’s card are all from Stampin’ Up!  They are Pacific Point, Marina Mist and Wild Wasabi.

Measurements for this card are:

*4-1/4″ x 10-3/4″ card base (scored and folded at 2-5/8″ from each end)

*Place the longest edge horizontally when scoring.

*2 pieces:  4″ x 2-1/2″ Whisper White

*2 pieces:  3-3/4″ x 2-1/4″ Designer Series Paper

*1 piece: 3-7/8″ x 5″ Whisper White (inside)

*1 piece: 1″ x 9″ for card band

*2-3/8″ scallop circle

*Satin Ribbon

*1/4″ strip of Designer Series Paper

*Sentiment image matted with designer series paper.

Assemble the card band and attach the center flower embellishment.

For the mat behind the center embellishment I added some simple lines and dots with a Stampin’ Marker.  For this card I used Pacific Point ink on the Marina Mist punched scallop circle.

This is how I made the center flower.  I stamped the whimsical floral image using Black StazOn ink.  I watercolored the images and added clear glitter to the flower center.  Punch the completed image out with a 1-3/4″ circle punch and adhere onto the scallop circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The inside has complimentary images and a sentiment.

I also embellished the envelope front and watercolored it to match.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today’s design 🙂
