Oh my goodness blog friends, I guess I didn’t know what I got myself into offering up this video tutorial for the Spellbinders Gilded Gatefold Card. I’ve been working on it all week and finally got to the end today. So you know me, I always do new samples when I do a video so today is no different. Using simply precious new stamps from QQuietfire Design, I created a new baby keepsake to announce a birth. I went all girl because you know I jump at any chance to use pink. Rest assured though, the stamp set includes everything needed to switch over to little boy!!
Here’s a peek inside!
On the inside I used Spellbinders Floral Ovals to create a frame where I hung this darling Spellbinders Dresses One (I love those dresses)! All I did to it was wrap ribbon around it and put a flower on it. Then on the right side I typed the name of a the newborn and her birth date. I used Quietfire Design Welcome Little One stamp set and filled in the center with A Baby is a Little Bit of Heaven. Of course the outside of the card is done with Spellbinders Gilded Gate Two and I popped up Spellbinders Gold Labels Four on both the outside of the card and the inside of the card for my sentiment. The dotted embossing is done by Spellbinders Dainty Dots.
The name and date of birth below were printed on my inkjet printer.
I hope you enjoy the tutorial, I show you how to make the Christmas Card first, but once you understand the layout, it’s very easy to do it for any occasion. (Note: the thicker your paper, the more difficult it will be to make the card lay completely flat. Once the bow and embellishments are applied to the front, that will help a great deal).
