DSCN5053Hi Everyone! Here's a gate-fold St. Patrick's Day card. Guess what? Yup – I used Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper again 🙂 I'm really trying to show different ways to use the sheets. We want to be creators not collecters! For me, that's the fun of our hobby. Get in the products and have different ways to use them. This sheet side is a great backdrop for florals and for your St. Patrick's Day cards and projects!

DSCN5056To make a gate fold card base:
8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card stock base. Score at 2-1/8" & 6-7/8" along the 8-1/2" side. Congrats! You just made a gate fold card base 🙂

General instructions: Adhere panels to gate fold base. Die cut Deco Labels. Emboss the white layer using Fancy Fans. Adhere label layers to the right panel only. TIP! use hot glue if your whisper white not sticking to glimmer paper. Line up the points of the deco label to center seam – mine must have shifted! So make sure to let dry just a minute.


Adhere stem. Add one layer of hearts to form Shamrock. Take 3 hearts, fold in half. Add glue along fold and adhere to top of base heart/leaf layer. Use remaining hearts as leaf on flowers. Add a candy dot to the center of flowers.

Take care my stampin' friends!
