Join Kim Kesti in the Creative Classroom as she uses the Small Die of the Month and Clear Stamp of the Month sets for February, Trefoil Tile & Panel Card Creator and Trefoil Florals & Sentiments to make a beautiful gate fold card.
To make the base of this gate fold card, begin with a 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of cardstock. Score at the 2 1/8″, turn cardstock and score a 2 1/8″ again so you end up with two front flaps that open in the center. Each of these flaps will perfectly fit a die-cut Trefoil Panel. Kim recommends using the Bearly Art Precision Glue to adhere detailed and delicate dies like the Trefoil Panel.
To complement this beautiful monthly die, the Trefoil Florals & Sentiments clear stamp set coordinates with the die set, adding beautiful floral images and simple sentiments to fit perfectly with the trefoil shape.
Kim colored her stamped images in shades of peach and blue, matching the brand new Barely Peach and Terra Cotta cardstock she used. Our 30 new colors of 100 lb. solid core cardstock are available now in the Spellbinders shop. You will love the vibrant colors and the exceptional quality. It die cuts and embosses like a dream! (What’s your favorite new color?)
To complete this card, Kim shares two different ways to secure the gate fold card closed. Watch the video to see both ideas – the first option is a cardstock strip used as a “belly band” with a twine accent. The second is a beautiful ribbon bow to close the card, complete with a sweet, tiny tag.
