Fresh Fruit Peach Gate Fold Card

The second card in my Stamp of the Month Club card kit this month was inspired by a card my friend Mary Ellen Stites designed for our Vacation Stamping School team training event last month. I love the fun gate fold that Mary Ellen used on her card. I changed up the card base color to have more variety among the cards in this month's kit and incorporated the doilies and burlap that I used on the other card designs.

Card-Making Tips:
  • To create this gate-fold card, start with a piece of cardstock that is 4-1/4" x 11" and score at 2-3/4" and 8-1/4". The inside piece is 3-3/4" x 5".
  • Stamp the border at the bottom of the card using the single "dot" from the Fresh Fruit stamp set.
  • Ink the peach stamp with Peekaboo Peach ink. BEFORE stamping, use a sponge dauber to add Watermelon Wonder ink along the bottom and up the middle of the stamp. If desired, spritz the stamp lightly with water before stamping for a more watercolor look. (Watercolor Paper is best for this technique.) 
  • For extra sparkle, apply Clear Wink of Stella to the stamped peach and the peaches on the designer paper.
  • Make sure to only use adhesive on the top half of the front layer so you don't glue the card closed!
