July 18

Good Morning! ☀️ I have to confess that I love gatefold cards. I really like using the die Sarah and I designed for the tops. The cards open so seamless compared to cutting with two dies. I think it's because the new die is perfectly centered.

My biggest dilemma is I like patterned paper for the sides. I went to a local scrapbook store and bought $50 worth of patterned paper and wasn't really happy with any of it 😡

The other day I decided that as a stamper, ( right; we are stampers!!) I should just stamp my sides and I am so much happier with them. Just the right amount of pattern.

I learned something else while doing this card…glue can smear your ink. yep, don't look too close or you can see where my glue got away from me and smeared the ink 🙄

well, I'm off to make stamps 😜

Stamps Used: F193 Hanging Bells; FF50 1.75 Dots & Circles; DD76 Naughty or Nice Fun Cube; F247 Joy Holiday Season; HH28 Dots & Lines Border;

Cutting Die Used: Scallop Circle Frame Die Set;

    I love this card! I would love instructions on how you created it. I never have good luck with gate food cards interlocking and opening smoothly.

      Hi Sue! I think that by using the die it places the circle in the exact spot it needs to be to open and close. I tried using two separate dies and always seem to have trouble with the opening. I do sometimes cut off a little of the paper after I score if they are touching in the center. I like just a little space. Hope this helps!!
