Simple flowers


It has been a while since I’ve made a gatefold card and I had this image in my pile, so I threw this card together pretty quickly.

Since my bases are almost always 4 ¼ x 5 ½ it took a moment to figure out how I wanted to emboss this card since I really didn’t want layers. The CB folder would not fit inside the card, so I had to emboss each gate section separately.

I love the look of this very simple card.

The Plum Pudding cs (PTI) was in my pile of scraps and my image was already colored, so this was super quick, which I need right now.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!


Stamps: PTI In Bloom

CS and DP: Hollos White, PTI Plum Pudding

Inks, markers and coloring tools: Copics

Extra goodies: CB D'Vine Swirl

gorgeous!! did you buy the 3 copic system from PTI to match plum pudding? i have had such problems with the copics i own that i am leary in investing in more, but love your look!

great idea to emboss each section of the gatefold :-)

I have not bought the 3 copic system from PTI YET! Not because I see a problem with the sets, but because I am spending my budget on all the fun stamps. I do plan on buying the PTI copic sets in the near future, once I figure out what I own and what I need. For this card I used BV000 BV01 and BV02
