I began with a piece of Old Olive cardstock and scored it on both ends (I scored it on end, flipped it over to the other side and scored again) which created the gatefold (you can find all the measurements below the Supply List).
I added panels of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series paper to both sides of the card base and added a panel of Whisper White cardstock to the inside.
It isn’t necessary to add a belly band (mine was made with one of our New In Colors – Bumblebee) but it does help to keep the card closed. The width of the belly band can be any size and mine is 3/4″. I tried a 1″ width but preferred the smaller size for this card. I scored it in two places and wrapped it around the card, securing the two ends with a small amount of Multipurpose Glue. I added two Stampin’ Dimensionals to the the belly band and then placed the sentiment piece on top of it.
The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock with Old Olive ink using the stamp set Tasteful Touches. It was cut out using Stitched Shapes Dies and a die-cutting machine. The Bumblebee and Old Olive scalloped ovals were cut out using the Layering Ovals dies which coordinate beautifully with the Stitched Shapes Dies.
