Cardmakers are always on the lookout for unique ideas for their creations. This card uses the Peaceful Wreath stamp set from Stampin’ Up!’s 2015 Holiday Catalog, one of the many items that will retire January 5th.  It was cut with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits, and the window frame from Hearth & Home Thinlits provide the background.  The colors are:  Soft Sky, Real Read, Mossy Meadow, and Lost Lagoon.

Handmade cards are such a special way to let friends and family know how much they mean to you.  During the holidays, your beautiful creations will stand out among the crowd.  Especially ones like this that will stand up on their own!

    Thank you for the gate fold card. I’m going to work on this as I have all the items. BUT how did you get the leaf and outside lighter than the card stock? Keep the videos coming, I’m just learning so much from you. It has taken a long time for it to sink in my brain. We had our church Christmas party tonight and everyone loved the ornaments cards, now I have to do a class for them.

      You’re so welcome! I stamped the leaf in Whisper White Craft Ink, then dried it with the heat tool. Craft Ink doesn’t dry right away, and the heat tool keeps me from getting too impatient. Thanks for your support, Bernice. I’m glad you get so much from the videos.

      Thanks, Virginia. I’m glad you love the videos, and I’ll work on one for more intricate gate folds in the future. Everyone seems to like the fancy fold cards, so I like to keep making them!
