Last week, it was the Birthday of one of my regular class attendees. This Crossover Gatefold card is the card I sent.
At my recent Fancy Folds Class, the attendees made a ‘standard’ Gatefold card, a post on that is coming soon. It is taken to a Crossover Gatefold through the addition of the interlocking (crossover) pieces at the front.
The recipient is a fan of blues, so I chose Misty Moonlight and Seaside Spray for my colours. Each one is from an In Color Collection.
Beautiful panels for the front are from the co-ordinating Flowers for Every Season 6×6 DSP. As they also like a bit of grunge, so I used a Sponge Dauber around the edges of the DSP panels to add some shading. The pretty DSP did a lot of the work, so I didn’t need to add too many extra items.
Both of the words for the sentiment are from the Well Said Stamp Set and stuck onto the top and bottom strips. The other strip is stuck on the opposite way. Do make sure you pop your adhesive in the right place, or you could end up with a card that doesn’t open!
To make the ‘lock’, a leaf made using the Forever Fern Stamp Set and Dies Bundle is stuck across both parts of the sentiment. A butterfly from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set, cut using the Butterfly Duet Punch is stuck to the other strip. This then creates the crossover.
A light coating of Wink of Stella on the butterfly gives a touch of Birthday bling.
