This is the third card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting in July. It is a fun fold card. The name of the fold is Gatefold. Normally this fold is a little tricky but Stampin’ Up! has come out with a brilliant set of dies that make it easy to do. The dies are called Gatefold Blossoms Framelits Dies. They cut and put a score mark where it is needed so all you need to do is score, fold and decorate it. Another fun thing is this set of dies has a matching stamp set called Bouquet Blooms and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle!
Here is a picture of the card opened up so you can see how it works:
The leaves and the flowers overlap each other to keep the card closed. It is perfect to put a gift card or cash inside for a birthday, wedding or graduation. It fits into a regular A2 envelope too!
The colors we used to make this card are Sea Foam Green, Balmy Blue, and Tranquil Tide.

What a fun card! I love the stamped image around the sentiment. And how clever that the leaves and flower keep the card closed. Nice!!
Great colour combination! I like the stamping around the sentiment, and the pretty blue flower 🙂
