Hi, crafty friends. Simon Says Stamp has just released their Best Days collection of products and they are fabulous. You can find the entire release HERE. I’m sharing a few cards created with THIS new background stamp and THIS adorable bunny stamp set…
I wanted to mix it up and create some gatefold cards. Gatefold cards have unique openings. My cards open from the center. I created the card base by trimming down a paper to 4 x 8 inches and scoring 2 inches in from each side. These cards measure 4 x 4 in size when completed.
I stamped THIS new background stamp on three sheets of colored card stock and trimmed down the panels down to 2 inches to cover the front panels. I die-cut a heart from THIS die set out of coordinating card stock and white heat embossed the bunny image from THIS stamp set. I also stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set on a banner die-cut with THIS banner die. When adhering the heart, I only applied adhesive to the left side. This allows the panel to open easily.
I finished off the card by adhering a small pom pom to the bunny’s tails and adhering a panel cut with THIS die on the inside of the card.
