Just a Note

Just a quick note to let you know that I won’t be posting again until Saturday or Sunday.  Normally I post on Fridays and Saturdays but my blog is getting a refresh!!  I’ll have a new banner and the blog will have a different feel to it! I’m very excited!  I think it will be set to go live sometime Friday or perhaps Saturday.  I hope you’ll stop by and see my new look!

Naturally Eclectic Double Gate Fold Card

Yesterday I posted the Gate Fold Card I made using the new DSP  Naturally Eclectic.  I made the card specifically so that I could put a gift card inside and I gave it to a male.  I’ll admit that most of the cards I make are usually given to a women so I had to go through my stash of paper to pick a sheet of paper that wasn’t too girlie.

I did promise that I’d have a picture tutorial and I’m sorry that I’m posting it late today.  My husband and I went away for a few days, just the two of us, and I wasn’t able to get this done once we got home.  Fun can be exhausting!

I really think you’ll enjoy making this card.  If you give it a try, I’d LOVE it if you’d email me a picture!  Let’s get started!


Double Gate Fold Card

Happy Monday!  Today I want to share a Double Gate Fold card. My team leader, Dawn Griffith, made one several weeks ago and I knew I wanted to give it a try!  It looks complicated but it really isn’t! 

It won’t fit inside a regular sized envelope so I made one using the Envelope Punch Board.  I actually sent this one off the other day to give to someone for their graduation. 

A belly band wraps around the card to hold it together.  I included two gift cards inside so it was pretty bulky.  It’s important to add your gift cards AND the cardstock inside the card before wrapping the belly band around.  That way you can be sure that the belly band will fit!

When you take the belly band off and pull it open, it looks like this.  Open it again and it reveals the inside sentiment and in my case, the gift cards too! 

I’ll be back tomorrow with a picture tutorial showing you how to make this fun card as well as the supply list.

Have a wonderful day!
