Stampin' Up! Simply Elegant Extended Gate Fold Card

Whether you are a regular visitor or just hopping by, welcome to Julie's Stamping Spot! I'm so excited to be participating in the Top Ten International Highlights Winner’s Blog Hop October 2021 hosted by Kylie Bertucci! First, I want to thank you for taking the time to vote for my card in the gallery a couple of weeks ago. There were so many amazing projects and I am honored to have my card receive so many votes!

The project I am sharing today was inspired by another card that I made a couple years ago. It's simple design -- a basic gate fold card with an extra panel on one side.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Stockings Never-Ending Card + Video Tutorial

Do you remember the Cute Halloween Never-Ending Card that I shared last month? Claire saw it on my desk and wanted to make her own version. We worked together to make this card using the Sweet Stockings Designer Paper. I fussy cut the animals from the designer paper and used sentiments from several stamp sets.

VIDEO: Stampin' Up! Sweet Symmetry Accordion Card Tutorial

Check out this fun fold! I CASEd a birthday card that I received from Margo Richardson two years ago. After showcasing it during my Stamp Sale video last week, I decided to try this fold myself. I used the Sweet Symmetry Designer Paper from the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

I love the colors so much that I picked them for the Color Challenge in my Facebook Group: Julie's Stamping Spot: Share & Connect Group. Play along and share your project in the group for a chance to win a prize! Check it out.

Here is the card closed. I added a ribbon to keep it closed and also to tie in the Just Jade again. It's not attached, so you can slide it off and back on instead of untying it.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of the Earth Easy Side Step Card + VIDEO Tutorial & Bonus Ideas

Last Thursday, I shared this Easy Side Step Card during my weekly Facebook Live. I was inspired by a card that Maysa Sameh sent for the Great Big Card Swap. I made some Side Step Cards years ago (see the template) that required some complicated cutting and scoring, so I was happy to see Maysa's "easy" version!
