Hi Everyone!

The NEW Annual Catalog is here June 1, 2018! (Click here to see an online version) Once again Stampin’ UP! has outdone itself with a great mix of stamp styles, accessories, color and tools to help us with our paper crafting projects 🙂

And what better way than to kick it off with a Blog Hop too!

My card today is a gate fold card with a unique opening. The opening is created by using a die in the opposite direction with the “blade” side facing up. One makes the gate fold base as normal. Then sandwich the die with blade side up on the card’s inside. Position the die on the section where the bird is at. (decorate the inside of the card after die cutting.

If you enjoy seascapes, Lilypad Lake pairs beautiful with the entire Tranquil Textures Suite of products. Which is what I’ve done on this card!
